Around the time that Snowden started talking about the United States government’s surveillance activities, I decided it might be a good time to start learning about email encryption. As insecure as email is, encryption is something that everyone should have started doing a long time ago anyway. Unfortunately, there are reasons that everyone isn’t using it. It’s hard to set up I suspect the way most people on Windows will use PGP is by downloading GPG4Win and Enigmail.
