How can I be absolutely sure that the link is secured?
You may wonder why our site does not have access to your passwords?
The reason is that your password is split by two parts (that's why we have a limit of 8 characters minimum).
The first part is sent to our servers for additional protection of your data.
But the second part is never sent to our servers, we use it solely for browser-side encryption.
If you have some web-programming skills, you can easily verify that your password and link are truly secured by checking JS code.
