Regarding Burn Note -

New Organizing Institute is a prominent resource for activists in the
United States. They coincidentally sent out a tip to use a BurnNote-style
tool to their list today. This time, the website is onetimesecret.com.

Is their Tip of the Day incorrect?

seems like every other day we hear a news story about a major site being
hacked and users' information and passwords being stolen. A new service
called *onetimesecret.com<http://act.neworganizing.com/go/851?akid=1066.12019.COEaQT&t=2>
* won't stop hackers but it will make a common thing we all do much more
secure.*

*How often do you have to send passwords, logins, or other sensitive
information via email or IM? All the time, right? Well,
*onetimesecret.com<http://act.neworganizing.com/go/851?akid=1066.12019.COEaQT&t=3>
* is an ingenious way of making that task much more secure. *

**How does it work?*

   - Instead of sending your friend your password clear as day in an email
   or IM, go to the
website<http://act.neworganizing.com/go/852?akid=1066.12019.COEaQT&t=4>,
   type in the special link, password, or really *anything!*
   - It creates a unique URL that is only available once to send to
   whomever needs the information. That's right, you can only visit the URL
   once - ever!
   - On top of that, the link itself expires after two days.
   - Did I mention it's free?

This incredibly simple but extremely powerful tool is a huge step for
internet security. No more sending passwords or *any* sensitive information
in email or IM that can persist forever and you have no idea who could have
access to it in the future.
