How To Check The Security Of Your Emails?
Whenever security needed, Google email protects your information by using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to automatically encrypt mails you send or you are receiving.
Transport Layer Security doesn’t work with messages from some other email services.
If you’re using a PC or Android device, you’ll know an email is not encrypted when you see the No TLS (unlock) symbol (lock symbol) or. It would seem that an open red lock.
Check emails you’ve received
- On your PC, log in to Gmail.
- Click to open an email.
- In the top left corner of the email, under the sender’s name, look for No TLS (lock icon).
If you see the icon, the message you’ve received might not be encrypted. The email sender can find out more by contacting their email service provider.
Check emails you’re sending
- On your pc, log in to Gmail.
- In the top left corner, click at Compose button.
- In the “To,” “Cc,” or “Bcc” field, click type your recipient’s email address.
- On the right of the receivers email address, now look for No TLS (lock icon).
If you see the icon, the email, you’re about to send might be unencrypted. Don’t send any confidential data or material, just like as tax forms or contracts info, to that email address.
