Google’s Gmail email service has decided to add a blue checkmark to emails to improve sender verification, writes 9to5Google.
The existing system works on the Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI) standard. In it, brand logos appear in the avatar slot of the sender’s name and address. The system is based on reliable DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) authentication and logo verification using VMC issued by a Certification Authority such as Entrust or DigiCert.
Now this function will become more clear. Accounts that have accepted BIMI will receive blue ticks, and this will allow for clearer identification of messages from legitimate senders. To do this, you need to hover the cursor over the check mark, after which an inscription about confirmed verification will appear.
The new feature will be introduced today and in the coming days/weeks, it will be available to users of Google Workspace, G Suite Basic, and Business, as well as personal Google accounts.
Earlier, Google announced new AI features in Workspace services that are similar to ChatGPT. Google Docs and Gmail will get generative AI that will help create a variety of content.
