For today’s Tech Tip, I brought in my partner, RC here. We’re going to show you just how easy it is to send a secure email. So easy that a dog without an opposing thumb can do it. Stay tuned.
I wanted to show you guys how easy it is to send a secure email.
Even so easy that RC, an animal without an opposing thumb can send a secure email message. What I’ll do here is I’m going to send a test email to my Gmail account. All I have to do is put in the “@” symbol and type “secure” in all lower case, anywhere in the subject line. I can put something preceding or following the “@secure”, as long as there is a space between and not touching the “@secure”. I’m going to type “Important Message”, then space.
Then you’re going to type your message, I’m putting in the word “test”. Then, you simply click “Send”. The recipient will receive a message with a link to click on. This will take them to a secure portal. From there the recipient can reply, attach messages, and do whatever they need to do to securely communicate with you, through this portal. This is so simple. It’s a shame that more people don’t have it set up this way and that more people don’t send messages this way.
One other thing that is neat about this is that these messages are sent to expire within 30 days. So often some messages are linked like this that are set with no expiration date. You don’t want to have all of this information out in the wild with these live links. So, you want to have your system set up so that it will delete that message after 30 days.
Let me know if you have questions. Again, this is a great easy way. You need to be sending email securely and this is how you do it.
