Secure your email with easy encryption!

Recent revelations about the monitoring activities of the NSA as well as the Canadian government have made many people understandably uneasy. However, one good thing to come out of the leaks has been a new attention focused on privacy and data encryption.

If you are a user of gmail through Ryerson, or with a personal account, you can secure your emails using an extension for Chrome called “SecureGmail.”

This extension, which can be installed with one click from the SecureGmail website, encrypts emails before you send them. Simply create a password for decrypting the email and send it. Upon receiving your email, the recipient will have to enter the password to decrypt the message. You can even provide them with a password hint.

While this isn’t the absolutely most secure method of communication, it does give an added layer of privacy to any email communication.
