Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Privnote – Send Self-Destructing Notes.
What is it?
Privnote is a web service that allows you to send self-destructing notes over the Internet. You can use it to send confidential notes that, when read, self-destruct.
How much does it cost?
Privnote is free to use.
Send Self-Destructing Notes
Thanks to the growing legions of cybercriminals who are constantly trying to steal our personal information, we’re all becoming much more conscious about cybersecurity.
I’ve written before about why you should use a strong password and I highly recommend using a password manager such as LastPass, which can make it easier to securely share passwords with friends and colleagues.
But what about those occasions when you need to send confidential information, such as a password, to a 3rd party but are worried about the data being intercepted?
That’s where Privnote can be useful.
There’s no registration needed, and you can create notes in seconds.
Once your note is created, Privnote will give you a link.
You can share this link into an email, or private message, and send it to the person you want to read the note.
As soon as that person clicks the link, they see the note, and the link is destroyed — meaning nobody (not even the person you sent it to) can read it a second time.
After 30-days, all unread notes are automatically destroyed.
Privnote is a useful service to send passwords, passcodes or other confidential information to others in a secure fashion.
How can I get it?
