Effective Passwords for a Better User Experience
Offering a one-time password option for an encrypted message, where a disposable one-time password is provided for access, is an effective way to keep a message for intended eyes only. But when this one-time password is pushed to a recipient’s inbox, along with the encrypted message, the encryption becomes only as strong as their inbox access. Depending on the context and content contained within the encrypted message, you might opt for an encryption platform which allows control over how a one-time password is delivered to the recipient.
Unlike a one-time password, a shared pass phrase gives a secure message sender control over who’s reading their content. With this password system, the sender can choose how they grant access to their message. They might, for example, verbally communicate a message’s shared pass phrase over the phone. They might even set up their encrypted message so that it doesn’t require a pass phrase – for their less tech-savvy users.
