What is a paste "password?"

Our pastes are secured by cilent-side encryption, which protects you from unwanted bots and prying eyes. A password encryps and decrypts the contents of your paste in your web browser, so not even we can see the password or the contents of the paste.

When you create a paste, you are given a special link:

The password which follows the hash (#) symbol, is used to unlock the paste and view the contents. Without the password, it is impossible to view the contents of your paste.

What this means is that you can share a paste with or without the password, giving you total control over your privacy.

Here is another example:

In this case, "9Pnzzmbd" is the password to the paste.
