ProtectedText does one thing: encrypted text.

Recent news stories reveal that our “cloud” data is not secure and, best I can tell, this would include Google Docs. ProtextedText does not require any sign-in our accounts — and no advertising — solving all kinds of other issues.
Creating a new document could not be more simple: just create a URL and start typing. As in:
Be aware that ProtectedText has two levels of security, both important. The first is the name of your URL. The longer and more obscure your file name, the more secure.
will be much more secure than:
The second level of security, of course, is the length of your password.
If you are worried about serious hackers, make both very long. But, if you are just worried about snoopy students or other amateurs, something memorable is fine.
ProtectedText has the age-old problem of single-key encryption: you must somehow give your collaborator the file name and password. Obviously, if you do this on the Internet, you compromise your security. The best strategy is to hand it personally to them on a piece of paper.
A deal breaker for some will be that ProtectedText is just text. Nothing more — not even font formatting or links.
In summary: If you need to send a secure message or collaborative document. it doesn’t get easier than ProtectedText.
