The password is encrypted in your browser using an industry standard AES 256 bit encryption and can only be decrypted using the special link you get in return.
We store the encrypted password and a half of the encryption key in our database. The other half (which we never see) is saved directly into the password link.
When the password has been viewed, the ciphertext and our part of the encryption key are deleted from our database. Nobody will be able to see the password again.
The basic usage of the service is free and does not require an account, however authenticated users have the following additional features available along with raised usage limits (some of the additional features require a paid subscription, see our plans for more information).
List of stored passwords
Includes e.g. password ID, password description (if set), timestamp when viewed. Actual passwords can't be shown, of course.
Message & description
Set a message to be shown with the password and a description for the password to help distinguish it from other stored passwords.
Receive an email when someone views a password to immediately know it has been delivered.
Our simple HTTP API makes it very easy to integrate password.link into your own application.
When the password has been viewed an HTTP POST request will be sent to the specified URL containing details about the event.
