KCS - Is Sharing a Document via Email Link Secure?

Objective:

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

Environment:

  • Clio Web App

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.
