Quimby, the Secret Service

You know that feeling when you have to share a secret with someone but don’t want to write it down anywhere because you’re security conscious? E-mail or instant messaging is tempting, but it’s definitely not secure.

Enter Quimby

Quimby (a.k.a. The Secret Service) was built to take care of that, allowing users to easily and securely send each other secrets over a possibly untrusted network: you create a one time link, send it and the message is deleted when the link is opened.

Try it, it’s easy

For production use Quimby needs to be used with an existing SSL endpoint, but if you just want to try it out we can disable that behaviour and run it in Docker, with the following command:

docker run -p 5000:5000 -e DEBUG=True notonthehighstreet/quimby

Quimby will then be available at http://localhost:5000. Don’t forget to take a look at the project’s page for more information.
