GPG For Windows Users

Most of the people I exchange emails about half use Windows. The other half mostly use their smartphones which means they're using android. This is a rough approximation of my personal communication environment today. I occasionally use Windows 7 in a laptop at work. So for us who wish to keep our emails private, this is important.

Windows users can use GPG by downloading GPG for Windows.
It is called Gpg4win and it is a package that incorporates Gnu Privacy Guard cryptography, extension for Outlook, extension for Explorer and documentation. This enables Windows users to encrypt and sign their emails and files. It is Free Software.

Generate Your Key Pair
For Windows users, it is important to be able to encrypt your files and email messages. The first thing to do is to generate your key pair. This is a very nice wiki for Gpg4win.

Let us start fighting for our privacy and stop mass surveillance.
