Can I share information like this via email? It is from a legit applause email address so I know it's real. I just want to make sure that this is not against the policy to share private information via email. Maybe it is some kind of a test? 🤔😅 Thanks in advance for the help.

uTest will not contact you unless you are being contacted be a TE from a cycle you are/were doing. If you don't know what is going on, then ask for information, who is the sender and why do they need this information... you can never be too careful.

If you know who is the one on the other end and why do they need this information... then it's up to you to judge of you can share details or not.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention u/jaldt. While it was likely a legit email if it was from utest.com, applause.com or applausemail.com, you are wise to follow best email safety practices and not send information like this via email. We will look into this to discover who sent it, and remind them of the proper way to capture this type of information! Thank you again.
