Share passwords and notes securely with your trusted friends and families using Locker.

Why Use Locker To Share Items?

Sharing confidential data in emails or texts is NOT secure AT ALL since the messaging and emailing service often transfer the plain text over the network without encrypting the data. This means your information can be leaked to third-party vendors.

Meanwhile, Locker uses the strongest encryption system to encrypt your data before sending it over the internet, ensuring maximum security for you.
