What is PGP/GPG encryption?

PGP/GPG encryption (Pretty Good Privacy) is a public-key encryption program that has become the most popular standard for files and email encryption.

In addition to encrypting and decrypting files and emails, PGP is used to sign messages so that the receiver can verify both the identity of the sender and the integrity of the content. PGP uses a private-key that must be kept secret and a public-key that the sender and receiver must share.

Setting up PGP/GPG encryption will allow you to:

  • Verify automated messages so that you can be sure they came from us and haven’t been tampered with en route.
  • Receive encrypted automated emails of files from us. Some of these emails will contain sensitive information, such as account recovery instructions, certificates, etc so encryption adds an extra layer of security.

GPG (Gnu Privacy Guard) is an independent implementation of the OpenPGP standards. Click here to download the app: https://www.openpgp.org/software/
