Using Secure One-Time Links for Sensitive Information 


Welcome to, a secure platform designed for sharing sensitive information using one-time links. Whether you're exchanging passwords, personal identification, or other confidential data, this tool ensures privacy and removes any stored references after use. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of using effectively. 

In today’s digital age, it’s crucial to understand the risks associated with sharing sensitive information through traditional methods like email. Here’s why: 

  1. Emails are Permanent: Once sent, an email can be forwarded, printed, or saved by the recipient. This means your sensitive information could be exposed without your knowledge or control. 
  1. Vulnerability to Hacking: Emails can be intercepted during transmission or hacked when stored on servers, exposing your sensitive information to unauthorized individuals. 
  1. Accidental Sharing: It’s easy to send an email to the wrong person by mistake, potentially sharing sensitive information with unintended recipients. 
  1. Phishing Risks: Emails are commonly used in phishing attacks, where hackers impersonate legitimate organizations to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information. 

By contrast, provides a safer alternative. With one-time links, your sensitive information is accessible only once before it’s permanently deleted. This minimizes the risk of exposure and ensures that your data remains confidential. 



  1. Visit in your web browser. 
  2. Upon logging in, you'll arrive at the dashboard. Here, you'll find a place to enter an author, title, and your “paste”.
  3. In the “paste” textbox, put the information you would like to share with someone else, whether it's a password, personally identifiable information (PII), or any other sensitive data.

Links will be valid for 1 week, or until someone clicks the link.   

Click "Create" to generate a unique, one-time URL. Share this link securely with the intended recipient. 


Recipient Experience 

  • When the recipient clicks the link, they will see the content you shared. After viewing it once, the link becomes invalid.
  • If the recipient doesn't access the link within one week, it automatically expires and is removed from the system.

Best Practices 

Use Cases: Use for sharing sensitive information such as temporary passwords, account recovery codes, or confidential messages. 

Educate Users: Encourage recipients to access the link promptly to ensure timely information retrieval. 

Security Awareness: Remind users not to share the link with others unless necessary.
