We’ve got a much requested improvement for you on last week’s Secure Messaging and Password Sending releases. No more waiting and frantic clicking the Check for Updates button — Passpack will now send you an email notification when you receive a secure message.
Here’s the complete list of messages that are dispatched:
- Someone sent you a Secure Message
- Someone sent you a Password Entry
- Someone has invited you into their Ring of Trust
- Someone has replied to an invite-chat
- Someone has accepted you into their Ring of Trust
- (alas) Someone has removed you from their Ring of Trust
The first two or three letters of the person’s Community Name will be included in the email as well. The full name is blanked out to protect the other person’s privacy.
What Email is Used?
We’ve set this up on your support email. If you don’t have one set up, you can do so under Settings > Manage Your Email.
Turned On By Default
We usually introduce feature modifications as “turned off” so as not to annoy people already using them. But since being able to know when you have a new message is vital to being able to use messages properly, we’ve flipped that rule round.
So, if you’d like to not email notifications, you can take care of that in Settings > Sharing Options (it’s a little empty looking right now, but we’ll be integrating more improvements over the coming weeks).
Of course, if you don’t have any email set, then none of this will work anyway [wink].
