PrivNote vs Privnotes and other site imitators or possible phishing

The tow sites are very similar looking.

I noticed a client was using https://privnotes.com/ (note the plural “s” in there) and not https://privnote.com/. – I am not sure if this is actually a problem but I found a blog post that suggests being wary of imitations:

https://privnotes.com/ has empty links to social media in the footer so that is one clear indication that it’s not the “original” service.

Google is allowing ads for the imitation site but you can see the “natural” listing for the original site below:

What is PrivNote? It is a free website that allows you to send private/secret notes. It requires no password or user registration. Just write your note get a link, copy and paste that link into an email (or IM). When the recipient clicks the link for the first time, they will see the note in their browser and the note will automatically self-destruct; which means no one (even the original sender) can read the note again. The link won’t work anymore.
