Inbox Shield is a way to reduce the number of emails that are hitting your inbox so that you can lower distractions and be more productive.
How does Inbox Shield work?
When you enable Shield we'll start monitoring your inbox for new emails.
You can choose to block or allow all mail:
If a new email is blocked (either by block all or by being on an a blocklist), then we move it instantly to a hidden folder so that it skips your inbox.
You can check if any new screened mail needs your attention and other stats on your Shield Dashboard:
