1. Gmail’s Confidential Send
Gmail has a really cool feature that allows you to send an email that expires in a set amount of time, and/or requires a unique password that only the intended recipient will know.
How to use it:
- Begin to compose a new email
- Turn on Confidential Send by clicking the icon with the little lock and clock:
3. Select your expiration time and require passcode options:
4. Hit save
5. Finish composing your email and send
Your email contents will not be visible once the expiry time has elapsed. This is a great way to send not only passwords, but other sensitive data, images, and other documents.
1Password is a fantastic password manager tool and the way it works is you have a master password and you have a backup recovery sheet in case you forget or get locked out. You’ll want to keep this in a secure place like a safe.
After saving your password in the 1Password vault, you can share it with specific people, giving access to only those people who need it. 1Password has a chrome extension, mobile app, and standalone desktop app for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Command Line for the most flexibility and ease of use of them all.
