Good Idea- Scan and Email passport

Jump to last reply

I read in the latest issue of Travel and Leisure this great idea. Scan and email your passport, birth certificate, and driver's license to a secure address. Then if you lose your passport, you can access the information by computer. I think this is great. My son lost his ID in Mexico (before he had a passport) and honest to God, I didn't think we would ever get him home. However, I'm not sure my hotmail email address is considered a secure address.
