When working with clients, I often need access to hosting accounts, domain registrars, premium plug-in sites, and other password-protected accounts. Sending these logins over email and text is not recommended but sometimes a phone call isn’t feasible as passwords can be long and complicated and too easy to write down incorrectly.
I use LastPass to manage all my user names and passwords but what if my client doesn’t have an account with them?
I recently discovered a free website service called Reveal It! that can be used for exactly this purpose. Simply type your message into the box and the website generates a link for you to send to the recipient. As soon as that person reads the message, it’s deleted from the system. Only the person with the link can access the message and it can only be viewed once.
I’ll be using this service more frequently in the future when it comes to sharing sensitive login information with my clients.
