How to Send Encrypted Emails Without Installing Anything

If you want to protect the personal data that you send and reduce the risk of a breach, you’ll want to encrypt your emails or use an email encryption service! Did you know that you can send encrypted emails without installing anything?

Why would you want to send encrypted emails? 

You may think that encrypted emails don’t apply to you or they are a bit too “techy” to use. But, we’re making it simpler because hackers don’t care whether you’re techy or not. There are some other instances where you might want to send encrypted emails (for industries prone to email breaches check out our other article here.)

  1. If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur communicating about employee/subcontractor personal data, sharing sensitive information or ideas and secrets you want to protect.
  2. You’re sending attachments that contain personal information, e.g. recruiters sending CVs, accountants handling account data, members of the public sending copies of ID or official documents.
  3. Lawyers sending case-specific information
  4. Developers trying to create encrypted messages from their web portal

But, there are a few issues with the solutions that are out there at the moment: 

  • They require you to use a different email client entirely (and sometimes they aren’t user-friendly for beginners)
  • The other person (recipient) can’t read the encrypted email if they aren’t on the same service
  • You need to install an extension, app or program onto your computer (which many businesses won’t allow as it is directly on the network) in order to use them at all
