    Hi all. I was browsing using Atomic Browser (alternative to Safari) and reading an article. There was a link on the side to share by email. I accidentally clicked it and it opened my mail app, with a message partially composed (the link to the site was in the body of the email).

    Anything to worry about? Do they see my email/pass by any chance? Any vulnerability here?

    Nothing to worry about.

    What you clicked was just a mailto link. They are extremely common on websites, usually just have a recipient email address but can optionally set the subject and body of the email. The browser sees that what you click is a mailto link and sends the info to your default mail program, the site that had the link doesn't see any of your email information.
