One Time Secret Helps With Privacy Fears

By David Ponce

If you have something so secret that your head might explode if someone gains access to it, then it’s probably a good idea to just keep it to yourself. But if you absolutely must share, a service like One Time Secret could help you sleep a little better at night.

When you send people passwords and private links via email or chat, there are copies of that information stored in many places. If you use a one-time link instead, the information persists for a single viewing which means it can’t be read by someone else later. This allows you to send sensitive information in a safe way knowing it’s seen by one person only. Think of it like a self-destructing message

Some might worry about search engines discovering the link and the data before it’s deleted.

We block benevolent crawlers with our robots.txt file and we take further measures to stop malicious ones as well. If you are really concerned, protect it with a passphrase that only you and the recipient know.

The service is available now.
