Cloakmy provides a free, non-profit
tool to encrypt and share your messages.
Privacy is taken very seriously
, since it is the main purpose of this website. All stored data is
, and passwords hashed using Bcrypt
. We cannot
your password, therefore if it's lost, the content of the document is lost forever. Once your message is destroyed,
we cannot restore it. Messages are physically erased, once destroyed there is no coming back.
Please do not use this service as a long term storage solution for critical data. This service may be
discontinued at any time.
Cloakmy is a free web based service that allows users to create encrypted messages they can share over the
internet. Message deletion is based on the users settings.
We want to provide a secure and private way to communicate.
Cloakmy is now logging IP addresses when you send a message (to prevent any illegal use of our service); IP
addresses are also logged during login attempts (only after a wrong password and or a wrong link) to prevent
against attacks and to enable us to ban excessive requests.
Cloakmy declines any responsibility whatsoever. This is a free service, use it at your own
Disclosure of Data to Third Party
Cloakmy does not share nor sell any information to others, nor use it in any way not mentioned in this
Cloakmy uses 2 cookies to keep the user's session (one for the session's id and 1 for the session's
and Google Analytics' cookies (anonymous). Cookies must be enabled to post a message (or read a password
since sessions need cookies to work (hungry sessions :'().
Cloakmy encrypts your sessions with a randomly generated key that is stored in your cookies. This means that
even the server administrator (or anyone really) cannot read your session information.
All the data stored in Cloakmy's servers belongs to the person who detain the link (and password) to access
it until the data is erased.

I've been maintaining this service for free, with no ads, out of my pocket since 2012.
I'm now (March 2020) accepting donations to help with the server costs and my time maintaining it.
I intend to keep this service ad free or shut it down if it becomes too much of a headache.
