Setting up a GPG/PGP encryption for your email is a great way to keep your correspondence private and add an additional layer of security to your account.
How to create a GPG/PGP key
One popular method for encrypting email is by using the Mozilla Thunderbird email client with the Enigmail plugin. The basic steps are:
- Download and install the Thunderbird client.
- Install GnuPG and the Enigmail plugin.
If you’re a MacOS user, you can also try GPGMail, a GPG plugin for Apple Mail.
Once you've got everything set up, give us your PGP email key (under "Settings" in your account) and import our keys.
