    Michael Spector (and yes, he's my brother) asked how to safely email passwords, account numbers, and other sensitive information. You can't trust Internet email with potentially compromising information, such as your credit card or account numbers, social security numbers, or important passwords. As your message moves from one server to another, several people have the opportunity to read it. So what should you do when you have to get sensitive information to someone, and snailmail just isn't fast enough? I'll give you several solutions. Whatever option you pick, see What Is the Best Way to Create Strong Passwords? And if you have to share the password with the recipient, use the phone--just to be safe.
