Protected Text

Your text. Protected.

  • The safest site on the web for storing your text!
  • Enter any URL, e.g. protectedText.com/anything
    You find it - its yours!
  • Encrypt all your notes, access anywhere.
  • Simple. Fast. Free. No ads. Secure - don't trust us, check the code yourself.

Go to protectedText.com/ (or write directly in the address bar)

Why is it so safe?

  • Your password (or hashes) aren't sent to our server - we can't decrypt your text even if we wanted to. Only encrypted text is sent over the Internet.
  • No cookies, no sessions, no registration, no users tracking. We can't identify you at all. We can't know when the same user visits two different sites.
  • No logging in or out, just close the tab and you're safe (even on public computers).
  • No ads - we hate ads because they can track you, and they're distracting.
  • You don't have to trust anyone or agree on anything - check the code yourself. All our code is well written and full of comments so that you can understand it in details - start by looking at main.js, and check communication with our servers.
  • If someone wants your text, he'll need your password, but he'll have to find your site first.

Overwrite protection

  • You can use the same sub-site from multiple browsers/devices at the same time, without having to worry about ever losing any changes.

  1. Q: Why is this better then Evernote?

    A: Evernote is far from secure, and their Privacy Policy says: 'Your Notes also may be viewed where necessary ... to comply with our legal obligations, such as responding to warrants, court orders or other legal process.'
    Also, Evernote doesn't have overwrite protection - you could lose your text.

  2. Q: I've forgotten my password, what can I do?

    A: Passwords are never sent to our servers. We only store encrypted text - which is useless data once password is lost. Also, we don't know who this text belongs to.

  3. Q: Do I have to use long password?

    A: You don't have to, but it's recommended. The longer the password, the harder it's to guess it. Note that your text is protected by both URL and your password - if no one knows your URL, any password is good enough (if you use HTTPS nobody can see your URL).

  4. Q: Can I use suspicious internet connection (e.g. Starbucks)?

    A: Yes. Your password (or password hashes) are never sent over the network, and all data that's sent or received is always encrypted. Your data is decrypted only on your device, and encrypted before it's returned to us. For highest security use long password or HTTPS.

  5. Q: How does overwrite protection work?

    A: Overwrite protection prevents you from saving any changes if text was changed in the meantime. (Server stores the hash of newest content, and sends the hash to the client together with the content. Client has to return that hash when trying to save content. Server can compare stored and received hash to determinate if client was served with the latest changes.)

  6. Q: Why is my URL changed from "Mark's notes" to "mark-s-notes"?

    A: Some characters aren't allowed in URL addresses, that's why your URL is redirected to URL that has some characters replaced with dashes. You can still always type in "Mark's notes" and you'll be redirected to the same URL.

  7. Q: Do you have mobile app?

    A: This site looks great on smartphones! We're planning to release mobile apps as well; however, the apps would be less trusting because users can't check the code themselves (we don't want to force anyone to have to trust someone in order to be secured).

  8. Q: Is there a length limit?

    A: No. Site was tested and works fine with over 250 000 chars.
