Is Sharing a Document via Email Link Secure?

Objective:

  • Know if sharing a document via link is a secure way to share a document.
  • Sharing security

Environment:

  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

  • Clio Connect offers end to end encryption and is our suggested medium for sharing documents.

Answer:

  • Sharing via link is not as secure as using the Clio Connect portal. However there are a few security features to consider:
  1. The link is emailed, so would require the recipients email password. However, most email clients do not encrypt data, and therefore are inherently insecure.
  2. The link shared expires after 7 days.
