I think most would agree that sending the password in the same email is far less secure.
I agree with @alfred. I think his suggestion is the easiest solution for sending the password by other means. Having the option of a box pop up to copy the password and then send it out through other means would be the best idea. I’m not a coder but it does not sound too difficult as compared to the other proposed ideas. @usselite thoughts on making this happen?
Also, I have found another solution in the interim. I have noticed that you can go into the snippet and select the password and then choose cut from the right click context menu and it disappears to the clipboard so you could then paste it in other software like WhatsApp or an SMS gateway in an Internet browser or email to the recipient’s email to SMS address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org).
@usselite perhaps these two concepts could be combined and the pop-up could contain the option to create a second email to the recipient’s telephone number SMS email address containing just the password. The pop-up could contain a box for the phone number and a drop-down list of carriers to propagate the second email addresse.
A list of these SMS addresses are freely available:
or for $3 you can get a csv and json here:
I guess the only problem is that the user would have to know which network the recipient is on. Of course there’s an easy way to find out, ask.
Ladies and Gentlemen, do you think that sending a second password only email from the same FROM address thru the same email client to a different email address such as an SMS email address is sufficiently secure? Or if someone is intercepting outgoing mail would they end up seeing both the link email and the password email even though they were sent to two different TO addresses?
