A One-Time Secret is a secure way to share sensitive information. One of the biggest challenges (for companies and individuals) is sharing passwords securely. A One-Time Secret provides a safe and convenient way to do this.
What is a One-Time Secret, and how does it work?
A One-Time Secret is an encrypted piece of information in form of a message, file or something similar. The secret is shared to others, usually by an URL where the secret can retrieved once and/or expire after a given amount of time.
The contnet of the secret is usually sensitive, meaning that the information can harm once people not intended to see get these information.
Here’s how it works:
1. User inputs (sensitive) information, such as plain text message or file, on the OTS website (ots.keestash.com, for instance).
2. User encrypts secret with a passphrase and generates a link to share with another person.
3. The recipient of the link clicks on it and enters the passphrase to view the shared information.
4. Once the information is accessed, it is automatically deleted from the One-Time Secret website.
The beauty of this system is that the information is only accessible for a short period of time – making it much more secure than sending an email or text message. And, because the link and password are generated by the sender, there is no way for a third-party to intercept and view the shared information.
How can One-Time Secrets improve your security?
If you’re looking for a more secure way to share sensitive information, One-Time Secrets is a great option. The combination of encryption, sharing and expiration (both, after view and date based) makes OTS solutions a safe and proper way to share sensitive information. This makes it much safer than sending an email or text message.
One-Time Secrets is a great tool for companies and individuals who need to share passwords or other sensitive information. It’s quick, easy, and secure – making it an ideal choice for anyone looking for a more secure way to share sensitive information.
