Google: Brand Indicators for Message Identification

With the pandemic continuing, many workers are obligated to work remotely from home. And with that comes with a plethora of obstacles to keep your computer secure.

Hackers all over the globe are doing anything and everything they can to manipulate e-mails to con the most vulnerable users. Because of that, it’s important to large software companies to create the best security features.

Google announced yesterday that their next Gmail update in the coming weeks included what they called “Brand Indicators for Message identification”, or BIMI. This feature is hoping to implement the best security experience for companies, and will be tested by a limited number of users.

They added, “Our BIMI pilot will enable organizations, who authenticate their emails using DMARC, to validate ownership of their corporate logos and securely transmit them to Google. Once these authenticated emails pass all of our other anti-abuse checks, Gmail will start displaying the logo in existing avatar slots in the Gmail UI.”
