Information Request

Requests let you receive information from someone without the need for them to have a NoteShred account. Think of it like creating a blank note and asking someone else to fill it in for you.
For example, say you needed a customers login details, but they do not have an NoteShred account.

Group Collaboration

Previously when you created a note, you were the owner and only you could manage that note. This made it difficult for teams to know who sent what information where and which notes had already been created. Group Notes is the solution to this problem. Simply create a group, add other members to the group, then add notes to the group and now all members can see these notes and the related activity information.

Password Hints

Password hints allow you to include a question, phrase or hint with the notification email that you send to your users that can help them access the note without the need for you to send a second email or message containing the note password. This allows you to create a note, email the user and provide them with information to access the note in a single step when creating a new note.

Shortened URL's

We have recently purchased the domain "shred.io" and are now using it for URL shortening. You should notice that any new notes will include a new shorter style of link which looks like shred.io/a6fc6257
We think this is a much cleaner look and makes it easier to pass around URL's for pasting into emails.

The new links will redirect to the root "noteshred.com" domain.

Client Side Encryption

Client side encryption is an optional second layer of encryption with one important difference, the encryption is performed locally, within your browser and the private key (which is basically just another password) is never transmitted to the server.
Your note is converted to an encrypted string within your browser and sent up to the server after which the string is encrypted all over again using the regular NoteShred AES256 encryption functionality.
