ShareSimple makes it safe to mail in Outlook

Did you know that sending or receiving emails in Outlook is insecure? This is because Outlook does not encrypt data after it is transferred. If you want a secure email when using Outlook, you must acquire an expensive license for Office 365 E3. Or choose a solution like ShareSimple.

ShareSimple is a user-friendly add-in for Microsoft Outlook that protects sensitive personal data you send and receive.  Sending confidential documents safely has never been easier. Share and request sensitive data in compliance with global privacy regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, PIPEDA and more. ShareSimple is a simple to use and easy to install from Microsoft AppSource

How ShareSimple works

Step 1: Start a new mail

Start a new mail in Outlook. Open the ShareSimple window, and choose to share or request data.

Step 2: Choose files

Drag and drop the files you wish to share or request. After you have specified which rights the recipient should have, you simply send the email as usual.

Step 3: Files are received

In the recipient’s mail, there is a link to an encrypted folder from which the shared files can be downloaded. Before the files are retrieved, the recipient must verify himself with a one-time password, which is sent to the recipient in a separate email.

Pretty simple, right?

Mette on ShareSimple

1. How does ShareSimple help you?
We work with sensitive information daily. When we started our company, right away we needed an easy, safe way to send sensitive information securely, both to municipal officials and to the parents of the children and young people we work with. Likewise, municipal officials and parents needed an easy way to send us personal files and other sensitive information securely. 

We were looking for an email solution we could use to communicate safely with everyone, and we needed it right away so we could get to work. Happily, a skilled IT expert who was familiar with Safe Online and your way of working recommended we try here. 

2. How do you use ShareSimple?
We send and receive files about the children, young people and families we work with which always contain sensitive personal information. We also send documentation about our work, including status reports and other records to municipal offices and parents. To work effectively, we need to exchange all of this confidential, highly personal information quickly, while still making sure it is protected.  

When we ask someone for personal files, we use ShareSimple to send them a secure link they can use to send everything back to us in an encrypted folder. We send our documentation back the same way, with a secure link to an encrypted folder. Our customers, colleagues and business partners can then open the folder and save the files in their own secure systems. All of our employees have ShareSimple installed on their computers.  

 3. How easy is ShareSimple to use?
The system is very easy to use even for people like us who don’t necessarily have IT as their core competence.

We are also happy to work with you because you are always very available and helpful if we do have challenges with the system. You are always kind and patient and do what you can to find a solution. You understand how important it is for us to have satisfied customers, and that we cannot carry out our work if something goes wrong.

Customers on ShareSimple

We send and receive loads of documents with highly confidential information in them every day. It's critical that we confirm and document that each one is sent to the right recipient.

Ninna HansenOwner, Videbæk EDB Service

Keeping up with privacy regulations is a must in our business. Our partner, Safe Online, helps us get there.

Rune DoberckService Delivery Manager, IT Operations & Security, BankInvest

We use Outlook Mail at our company. Although I am responsible for data security, I cannot be sure that the employees comply with the data rules when they send and receive emails from our customers. With Sharesimple, we have a tool every employee at the whole company can use. It is easy to install and anyone can learn to use it.

Hanne MikkelsenData Protection Officer at medium-sized company

Delivering security and compliance solutions is what we do. We’ve partnered with Safe Online to offer their privacy solutions to our clients, but we also use them ourselves. Since we both focus on GDPR compliance and safe IT solutions, it’s a perfect fit.

Thomas LarsenCTO, Datacompagniet

Sharesimpel is a small program that solves a big task for us. We are in an industry where data security is paramount. We need a healthy way of handling emails, and here sharesimple is a really good tool.

Per-EmilData Officer at medium-sized company

Privacy is important to us, so we want to offer our members only the best and safest digital solutions. That’s why we recommend they use ShareSimple from Safe Online for safe data sharing.

ShareSimple is part of PrivacyHub

ShareSimple belongs to PrivacyHub, which is a SaaS platform for handling sensitive personal data. PrivacyHub has divided the processing of personal data into three phases. With RequestManager companies can receive data requests, with DataMapper personal data can be located and with ShareSimple companies can send (or receive) personal data securely. All three services can work separately, but are designed to work in a symbiosis. PrivacyHub enables a company to automate the process from personal data entering the company’s data systems while personal data is in the company to personal data leaving the company again. PrivacyHub is designed to let companies start with one solution and add others if the need arises.

How DataMapper works with ShareSimple
ShareSimple keeps sensitive information safe and prevents it from floating around unprotected in your inboxes. But what about personal data you collected before you got ShareSimple? And what about unsolicited data people send you in other ways? People still send you sensitive data unprotected, without checking with you first about the safest way to send it. With DataMapper you can quickly check all your systems (including email) for sensitive data. 

You may be surprised at all the CVs, passport and bank account numbers and more that people have shared with you over the years. DataMapper finds all this sensitive data quickly, whether its buried in old email attachments or stashed away in your local and cloud based storage. 

How RequestManager works with ShareSimple
ShareSimple lets you share and request personal data quickly with verified recipients, gets consent before accepting data, and deletes it promptly. Using ShareSimple consistently every time you send or request data is a great way to satisfy the security and confidentiality requirements of GDPR and other regulations. But what if someone asks you for a list of ALL the data you’ve collected about them, or makes another request concerning their data? Responding to this type of requests properly is another important part of compliance. However, most companies don’t have a process in place for receiving and responding to data requests. With RequestManager you can receive, verify and deliver all your data requests to one dashboard, then reminds you to respond on time. This streamlines one of the most time-consuming aspects of compliance: Data request management.

What is ShareSimple?

ShareSimple is an Add-in for Outlook. It creates a secure folder to safely share or request even very sensitive personal information from others at any email address, even if they don’t use ShareSimple.

When should I use ShareSimple?

Suppose you need to ask potential employees for police records, medical information or identity numbers. Here are a few things to consider when asking others for personal information:

1. Do I need to obtain consent to view it?
2. How can I make sure it is safe in transit?
3. How can I keep track of it once I receive it?
4. How long am I allowed by law to keep it?

All of these concerns are addressed when you request data with ShareSimple.

Your request message is sent with a one-time password to access a secure folder where the recipient can fill in info or attach files and give you consent to view it before sending it all back to you securely. You can choose whether to let them verify their identity with just their email or add an SMS code for extra security.


1. Start a new message and open ShareSimple.
2. Click request data, specify the information you need and send your message with the secure attachment from ShareSimple.

The recipient:

1. Gets a one-time password to access the ShareSimple secure folder.
2. Gives consent, fills in the information you asked for and sends the secure folder back to you.

The data is auto-deleted after a maximum of 32 days. You can customize this retention period in admin settings.

Can anyone use it?

ShareSimple requires a Microsoft 365 account, but ShareSimple users can share or request documents to/from anyone at any email server (Gmail, icloud, yahoo, etc.).

Your recipients do not need to add ShareSimple to receive your shares and requests.

ShareSimple is available from Microsoft AppSource and the Outlook add-in Store.

Can I use ShareSimple with a Gmail account?

Not yet. Please check our website for updates. Meanwhile, you can already use your ShareSimple with Outlook to share and request information from others who use Gmail or any other email server.

How can I invite users?

You can invite users of your company individually via the admin center in ShareSimple or you can choose to add multiple users at the same time via Microsoft 365 admin center.

You can find more information on how to add several users at the same time here.

What happens when my mail is sent?

Your secure message is sent with a one-time password to access a secure folder where the recipient can either;

• fill in info or attach files and give you the needed consent to have the data, before it’s all sent back to you securely (that is if you request data).
• or verify his or her identity (for email only or together with an SMS code for extra security), before downloading or viewing your shared documents (that is if you share data).

What is TrustedLink?

TrustedLink is a private, encrypted folder with a unique link you add to your website or send by email so customers and colleagues can upload and share files securely.

How can a TrustedLink help me be in compliance with GDPR?

The GDPR makes you responsible for obtaining consent to view all data shared with you and protecting it once you receive it. You also need to keep documentation to demonstrate that you’ve complied with these regulations.

TrustedLink has automatic authentication and asks for consent before an upload is allowed. Data uploaded to TrustedLink is secured with the highest encryption and you control access to it. Activity logs track all actions for audit purposes.

Who is TrustedLink for?

Anyone that requests and receives personal information from others will benefit from having a safe, standard location to share and receive files.

Why should I choose TrustedLink?

Providing an easy and secure way to share personal information smooths the onboarding process for new customers and employees and reduces your team’s workload.

Is it difficult to set up a TrustedLink?

Just add a TrustedLink folder to ShareSimple in admin settings, then copy the secure link and add it to your email signature, your website; or share it any other way you choose.

How do I maintain a full overview of folders and activities using TrustedLink?

You decide who on your team can have access to files uploaded to your TrustedLinks.  Get notified whenever new documents are uploaded. Data retention limits and activity logs ensure compliance with GDPR regulations.
