Why We Love: One Time Secret

Why We Love: One Time Secret

OneTimeSecret.com is a wonderful tool that we recently discovered at Alt Creative. Have you ever needed to send a password or other personal data, but you don’t want to put it in an email? That’s the brilliance of OneTimeSecret.com. You just visit the site, type in your secret, and the site generates an encrypted URL. You can then send that URL via email or instant message. Once the secret has been viewed, it’s deleted.


Why OneTimeSecret?

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.
Can I retrieve a secret that has already been shared?
Nope. We display it once and then delete it. After that it’s gone forever.

How long do you keep non-viewed secrets?
We keep secrets for up to 2 days. After they are viewed they are deleted immediately and gone forever.

What if a search engine crawled my secret link before I could?
We block benevolent crawlers with our robots.txt file and we take further measures to stop malicious ones as well.
