keeps your private information safe.
Gmail works hard to protect you from spam, phishing and malware, before they reach your inbox. Our AI-enhanced spam-filtering capabilities block nearly 10 million spam emails every minute.
Many malware and phishing attacks start with an email. Gmail blocks more than 99.9% of spam, phishing attempts and malware from reaching you.
Safe Browsing protects you by identifying dangerous links in email messages and warning you before you visit the site.
Gmail warns you before you download an attachment that could put your security at risk.
We protect your account against suspicious logins and unauthorised activity by monitoring multiple security signals. We also offer the Advanced Protection Programme for accounts most at risk of targeted attacks.
You can make your messages expire after a set period of time and remove the option for recipients to forward, copy, download or print your message from Gmail.
In Google infrastructure, messages are encrypted at rest and while in transit between data centres. Messages transiting to third-party providers are encrypted with Transport Layer Security when possible or required by configuration.
