How to Send Sensitive Information Over Email

If you’re anything like me, sending sensitive details like Google account login details, credit card details, etc. must be nothing unusual. No matter whether sending sensitive details over email is common for you or not, this is how to make sure that it is safe. Unsurprisingly we’re under a constant state of surveillance; intelligence agencies record our browsing , downloads and even emails we send. Sure enough, this is wrong. This is violation of our privacy, but then who’s to stop NSA?

Anyway not all hope is lost, there are ways you can help it. Using TOR browser to completely anonymize your web profile should not be the first of resorts. There are solutions like Snapmail, which are fairly efficient in case of sensitive information over email. What Snapmail claims to do is self-destruct emails within a specific period of time.

How it works:

To make sure your sensitive information lands in no one’s hands, Snapmail self-destructs emails sent via it. Emails sent over Snapmail are encrypted using AES algorithm. Emails sent via it contain a to the original email contents and the email itself deletes itself within 60 seconds of being accessed. The email contents are stored over Snapmail servers and therefore secure.

The encryption key is generated in your browser and stored in the link. Since Snapmail does not have encryption key, therefore even it cannot read that messages. Once the recipient clicks the link, email contents are deleted from Snapmail servers for good. Wish to attach image or documents with the email? You will be prompted to ask whether to unencrypted content or not.
