Why You Shouldn’t Share Secure Passwords via Email

Sharing your passwords with family by texting or sending via email may be dangerous. Third parties can easily intercept your data, especially if you use a vulnerable service.

An email is often stored on several systems or servers on its way to the recipient. The email will be saved in the senders’ sent folder, the recipient’s email server, and probably any other systems or servers that it passes through. In case any of these systems is compromised, your password may leak to hackers.

Moreover, emails are often sent in the so-called clear or plain text, which means the email content is unencrypted. If hackers intercept your email, it’s a no-brainer for them to extract your passwords from it. So, if your family members ask why they shouldn’t share secure passwords via email or messengers, you can easily explain the reason and suggest a reliable and secure alternative - Passwarden.
