Open or Send a Privnote

To easily and securely send passwords, API keys, and other sensitive credentials, we like to use Privnote

Privnote is a free web-based service that allows you to securely send private notes over the internet. It's fast, easy, and requires no password or user registration at all.

How to send a Privnote

Need to send us a password? Easy! Just navigate to www.privnote.com and type your note. Once finished, click the Create Note button.

Once the note is created, a URL will appear. Copy and paste this URL, which is unique to your note, and send the URL to the intended recipient.

When that person clicks the link for the first time, they will see the note in their browser and the note will automatically self-destruct; which means no one (even that very same person) can read the note again. The link won't work anymore.

How to open a Privnote

If you receive a Privnote in an email or IM, click the hyperlink. You will need to confirm that you want to open (and therefore "destroy") the note.

Once opened, please save the credentials in a secure location or the password manager of your choice. You will not be able to re-open the Privnote.
