North American technology Google now reinforces the security of one of its most popular services, the Gmail🇧🇷 At issue is the introduction of end-to-end encryption in the most used email service in the world, with immediate effect.
This measure aims to provide the platform with the highest standards of data security and integrity of communications, receiving end-to-end (E2E) encryption in Gmail for the web, via the computer. It is one of the best innovations to arrive on the platform in recent years as it asserts the quality and security of its services.
End-to-End Encryption Comes to Google’s Gmail
Users can therefore count on greater security and privacy of the data sent and present in the Gmail email service. This means that the data is stored in an encrypted form to which not even the service provider – in this case Google – has access.
For now, this benefit is in beta (testing) version, as reported by colleagues from Bleeping Computer, available only for Google Workspace Enterprise Plus, Education Standard and Education Plus plans. It is, however, the beginning of its implementation on the Google platform, configuring a very welcome reinforcement.
From now on, administrators can apply E2E encryption to groups that require a higher degree of security. There, the users will have to validate their identity to access these messages and their attached content.
Serious security boost coming to Google’s email service
This is the first step in the integration of end-to-end (E2E) encryption mechanisms, starting with the new authentication step in certain groups.
The measure aims to reinforce online security, in this case applied to the use of Gmail. It is also a testament to the growing importance of end-to-end encryption which is starting to become a key point for using cloud services.
Finally, it now remains to wait until this new asset (E2E) becomes available not only in the web version, but also for any and all Gmail users.
