Have you ever wondered if you could send to someone an email with sensitive information such as passwords, bank details, date of birth and after the recipient has read it to be automatically deleted?
OneShar.es is a safe and secure, encrypted website that allows you to send encrypted messages to anyone in the world and have the message evaporate into thin air as soon as it is read.
The message can only be read once, and since it’s encrypted end-to-end you won’t have to worry about your sensitive information getting hijacked somewhere along the way. And the most important, this service is free. So, let’s get started how to send an encrypted, self-destructing email.
- Visit OneShar.es and click on the Create One Now button;
- Type or paste your message you wish to encrypt and send into the text box. There is a limit of 1000 characters;
- Select a time limit for the message to remain active while waiting for the recipient to read it;
- Click the Create Link button;
- Send the created link for your message to your recipient via email, instant messenger or even a cell phone text or voice call.
After viewing the URL once, it will no longer be accessible not even by you. So, do not visit this link yourself because this is literally a read-once proposition. If you read it yourself and then send the link to your intended recipient, won’t be able to read it because you have already read it.
You can even utilize OneShar.es with your smart phone. Android and iPhone users can download the app from their stores for 0.63 pence (99cents).
This is a great tool to create your long encrypted messages and gives you facility of auto self-destruct, if the message is not viewed after a particular number of days or hours.
