I recently sent a Gmail to someone and clicked on my profile picture in the sent Gmail. There was an "About Me" section as well as "Recent Interactions" contained in here. To my shock and horror, actual copies of emails I've sent to other people were shown here. This means that anyone I send emails to can read previous emails I've sent to other people, some with very private and confidential information. How could emails or Gmails I've sent years ago get pasted on new emails that I send out. I'm now hesitant and reluctant to use Gmail to send emails. Actually, I won't use Gmail ever again.

All of your Gmail email messages are not sent to everyone.

Don't start a panic.

What you are seeing are the emails you have sent, just like if you would see all the emails from the other person if you clicked on their name. This is only for you to see, no one else.

Think about it. You have to be logged in before you see your profile picture. The only profile picture people could click on would be their own.

My husband and I both have gmail accounts. If I log in, I can't see his profile picture to click on.

I wasn't starting a panic. This is a forum for asking tech questions and am assuming we're all adults and capable of determining when something is a serious matter. I think the one that could have caused a panic is you by the way you reacted to my post.
