Full Form Of BCC, What Is Full Form Of BCC ?

The full form of BCC is Blind Carbon Copy. It is commonly abbreviated as Bcc. It is one of the field along with the "To" and "CC" field that you may find write writing an email. It allows the sender of an e-mail or message to hide the person entered in the Bcc field from the other recipients. This concept originally applied to paper correspondence and now also applies to email. In some circumstances, the typist creating a paper correspondence must ensure that multiple recipients of such a document do not see the names of other recipients. To do this, the typist can add the names to each copy in a second step and without carbon paper, and then copy circulation.

For example:- When you are having problems with an employee. When sending them an email, you can BCC your supervisor or HR in the email so that they get a copy of your correspondence. They will receive it, but your fellow employee will not see that other parties have been included in the correspondence.

An e-mail message can contain addresses in any of the 3 following fields:
·       To: field recipients are the audience of the message
·       CC: field recipients are others whom the author wishes to publicly inform of the message (carbon copy)
·       BCC: field recipients are those being discreetly or surreptitiously informed of the communication and cannot be seen by any of the other addressees.
