Stanimir Mihov is not secure
you can view other people´s text by changing the session ID <– change this!

Hi Stanimir,

Firstly, thank you for your visit. I’m the owner of the website. Thanks a lot for your comment. I want to explain a bit regarding your comment. is not 100% secure as the utmost purpose of it is to provide conveniences for lazy users like me. I can make the site secure for sure, but it will then require entering username and password and that will destroy the convenience for those who are in a hurry. Furthermore, the session (identified by session id) will expire in 5 minutes, after which you will not see the message any more. So if you wanna send some sensitive information, you’d better use traditional secure channel but if you want something quick and easy, use mine. In the future, I might add login feature for secure communication too. But I do this as personal pleasure so I hope you understand and share the joy with everyone :) Thanks

Stanimir Mihov

Hi Than you for the reply. I really like the concept your idea! :)
I understand that you want to keep your service as easy as possible.

May I suggest, from security aspects to add a small warning for the users not to share sensitive data. and maybe check box open for a single PIN(like code) verification.
No need for usernames then

Huu Bang

Hi Stanimir, Thanks for your suggestion. I will implement both of them soon as they make sense to me. Please check back regularly and hope you enjoy my service :)


Great selection :). Is a solution that i have looked for, for a long time !

Huu Bang

Thanks Alexander. I have added a feature to send file from PC to mobile. The other way round is being implemented as Safari now supports File Upload :) So check back again in the near future. Thanks :)

I’ve been seeing a lot of RealtimeBoard-type sites pop up – I mainly use ‘’ – even though it’s more limited, it’s great for sharing notes between computers.
