There are three kinds of emails you can receive from Kraken:
|1. Account notifications & email@example.com||always||automatically*|
|2. Company firstname.lastname@example.org||always||no|
|3. Support email@example.com||no||upon request*|
* Emails can only be encrypted if you added a PGP/GPG public key to your Kraken account.
Account notifications & confirmations and company announcements are signed regardless of whether you have a PGP/GPG public key associated with your Kraken account. You can use these instructions to verify their authenticity:
Company announcements are never encrypted.
Account notifications & confirmations are encrypted automatically, but you need to follow the instructions below to set it up.
To properly receive PGP/GPG encrypted account notification & confirmation emails from Kraken (an advanced, optional security and privacy feature), you'll need to follow all of these steps:
2. Create a public and private key for your email address (you will be prompted to do this when setting up your PGP/GPG application)
6. Sign our public key (important!)
9. Encrypted system emails arrive as an attachment. Download the "OpenPGP encrypted message" and decrypt it using your PGP key.
