How to (safely) share your logins and passwords

4 min read

Sharing passwords is like second nature to us (although it can potentially land us in trouble) — whether it’s offering the Wi-Fi code to guests or your Netflix credentials with a partner for a remote party binge. Most of us, however, share our logins through unprotected channels, such as over texts and emails, which can be intercepted and misused. Fortunately, there are much safer ways to share your passwords.

You can securely lend someone access to your account without compromising your safety through a bunch of methods. One of them even lets you share your subscription without actually sharing your password at all. Here are the best ways to safely distribute your logins.

Share account access without revealing your password

Whenever you send your account details to a friend or family member, you also end up telling them your password. This risks your online safety and potentially hands over the recipient or any snooping hackers the key to your other accounts if you often reuse the same password or a version of it. A service called SharePass offers you a much better and, more importantly, secure alternative.

With SharePass, you can loan access to your account to anyone without actually sharing any of your credentials, like your username and password. SharePass creates session tokens of your logins and lets you share them instead of texting your password. All the other person has to do is click a link to one of these tokens and they’ll be logged into your account in an instant — no punching in a long string of characters needed.
