Google is adding more features in the workspace of its Web-based email service- Gmail, which aimed to prevent unintentional data loss. In this regard, the US-based firm is adding an extra External badge.
It will give you a kind reminder indicating that you are currently communicating with the user outside of Google Workspace as well as your registered contacts.
This external emblem is placed at the top of the Gmail interface on a pill-shaped surface. The background is colored in yellow/orange with the External label written in black to signify that you are currently communicating with an outsider.
When you add the recipient’s name it will show you the warning message saying “Make sure this is someone you trust, this person does not belong to your organization and not in your contacts”. This is clearly visible due to the bright color.
The warning note will appear when you’ll prepare for the reply to that particular person. Furthermore, Google has installed this feature as the default function but users are able to disable it manually in the workspace.
The new external warning feature is currently rolling out for the Gmail applications installed on Android, and all the Android consumers of G Suite Basic and Busines can utilize it to avoid unintentional data damage.
In addition, it will later be sent on iOS devices, so need not worry about it. That’s all we have for the moment, we will update you further as we get any news on the subject. Since then stay tuned.
