So let’s say you want to email a password-protected document to someone. Or give them access to the back end of your website. You need to send them the password to open it …but what if they’re half a world away, sound asleep? Or they’re in a meeting, or just unavailable to take your phone call? Emailing the word itself just isn’t a secure option, even if you are using your super duper top-secret spy subject-line code:
Trust me, the bad guys are going to figure it out – if they want to hack the document or your website, that would be the first email they’d look at. And this is the second:
So here’s what you do:
Use a secret sharer.
One Time Secret
One Time Secret does just that – it allows you to share a secret just once. It can be a word or a phrase that you want, or the site will generate a random password for you. Just type in the word or phrase, click “Create A Secret Link” and an encrypted link is generated that you can cut and paste into an email. You can set the period of time for the secret to expire – so when your secret is opened by your authorized person, it automatically disappears and can’t be accessed again. Likewise, if it doesn’t get accessed within the allotted time, poof – it’s erased.
QuickForget does all the same things that One Time Secret does, but your secret doesn’t have to disappear after the first viewing. So if you need to send the secret to more than one person, you can choose the number of ‘views’ the secret has as well as the number of hours it’s available for viewing. There’s a handy email-it feature, too… (*cough*) as long as you don’t go with their suggested subject line…
