PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) and S/MIME are two techniques which can be used to encrypt e-mail.
End to end encryption of e-mail is required to hide communication between two individuals completely from any servers which may be involved in the delivery of the mail.
I could do a step-by-step setup of PGP, but then again, this is not a DIY site.

Instead, I shall be posting DIY info on how to do PGP over GMail, the e-mail which most people use anyway.

My ardent prayer to all Deshbhakts is to switch to encrypted communication channels and encourage people you love and trust to switch to the same.
Very soon, left wing terrorists will brand anyone with a swatch of conservative thought as a terrorist, and they will let lose the whole counter terrorism eco-system against conservative thought. So, use the encryption techniques terrorists(legal ones) use.
Use PGP.

With FlowCrypt, encrypting and decrypting happens on your device. This means that you will have to install FlowCrypt on each device you want to send and receive encrypted messages from.

If this is the first time you are using encryption on this account, click New Encryption Key.


Else if you have used OpenPGP encryption software from another vendor in the past and want to import your previous private key, see Use My Own Private Key.

How well do encryption services work? It seems to me that it is better to use trusted instant messengers for confidential correspondence.
