TV shows still think it's ''realistic'' in 2019 to show GMail being used for secret secure communication. At this point, I dunno if its just lazy, or intentionally shown that deceptively to plant that idea into people's heads, but any such show tossess its credibility out of the window like that with me...

@mareklach it is maybe similar to how on crime thriller series where you often see cops and other emergency services with wrong type of radio, incorrect uniforms for the period the show is set in, wrong vehicle livery etc.

In some cases its laziness but in some countries there are communications ministry codes that its not allowed to accurately depict anything that would help a crime to be committed so some things on telly are deliberate made inaccurate..
