Paaster is a free secure End To End encrypted (E2EE) Pastebin which has been developed for total ease and simplicity. It has been specifically built for securely sharing your code online.
Traditionally, a pastebin is a Web application that permits users to upload and share their content online. Most commonly, it is used by developers for sharing source code or some configuration information pertaining to an application.
Paaster stands out as it offers E2EE encryption with its pastebin due to which the code is never shared with the server or anyone else except the people with whom you share the link.
E2EE is a secure communication protocol that prevents third parties gaining access to the data as it’s transferred from one device to another. Only the intended recipient can decrypt it. Moreover, as the data packets travel to their destination, they cannot be read or tampered with by any ISP, hacker or any other third party entity.
Paaster is pretty fast and offers a file drag and drop feature due to which you need not open your code editor and copy-paste the code. You can simply choose to drag and drop your file containing the code and it will automatically be pasted.
Remember that this isn’t an editor hence users will not be able to edit any code in Paaster. You can use few helpful keyboard shortcuts defined below for ease and efficiency
