Need to send sensitive info via email? PasteVault provides a simple solution to the problem. The way the service works is simple: enter the text you want to encrypt, specify an expiration period, and enter a decryption password. Hit the Create Private Encrypted Link button, and PasteVault generates the text containing the encrypted link along with the password. Paste the snippet into your email and send it. The recipient then can click on the link to decrypt the text using the provided password.

This approach doesn't require any additional software installed on your and the recipient's machine, it's straightforward in use, and the expiration feature ensures your data, even in the ecrypted form, doesn't float on the web forever. The best part is that PasteVault's source code is avaialble on the GitHub, so you can deploy a PasteVault instance on your own server.
