As many privacy experts have voiced their opinion on social media, a reason why Google is taking this action is to eliminate any bad press about Gmail privacy. Google most likely believes that the inbox scanning scandal from a few years back has prevented many companies from adopting G Suite, fearing their emails would be scanned, even if in reality they weren’t. Despite being two different services, most companies look at G Suite as a paid version of Gmail, and many most likely believe Google would be scanning their inboxes.

Currently, over 1.2 billion users use Gmail, while Google boasts with over 3 million businesses who use its enterprise offering G Suite. – Bleeping Computer
