When you’re a spy, you send notes that have to be destroyed after reading. Most of us are not spies but that doesn’t mean we don’t have communications that we wouldn’t like to see destroyed so they don’t fall into the wrong hands. Privnote is a site that lets you share things electronically without worrying they’ll be passed on.
Sure you can tell your buddy to delate that email after reading it but there’s no guarantee that they will. They might read it, get distracted and forget all about it. Then it’s there with its sensitive information forever and ever. No thank you.
Privnote is a simple website. There’s a large text box in the center. Write your note. When you’re done, you get a link that you can email to whoever needs the information. Once the link has been read, it will be deleted. Or destroyed as the site dramatically says. You can also be notified as to when the note has been read so they can’t come back and say you didn’t send it. Privnote is free.
