OpenKeychain

OpenKeychain


OpenKeychain helps you communicate more privately and securely. It uses high-quality modern encryption to ensure that your messages can be read only by the people you send them to, others can send you messages that only you can read, and these messages can be digitally signed so the people getting them are sure who sent them. OpenKeychain is based on the well established OpenPGP standard making encryption compatible across your devices and operating systems.

Modern encryption is based on digital “keys”. OpenKeychain stores and manages your keys, and those of the people you communicate with, on your Android. It also helps you find others’ keys online, and interchange keys by touching devices. But its most frequent use is in using those keys to encrypt and decrypt messages.

Great free app, little complicated Really like this app but it's the first time bothering with encryption and need a few Questions answering. If someone is asking for my PGP key, is this it? Also to the Dev, ever since downloading this when i download music via an mp3 convertor, how can i stop it being encrypted by this? Instead of just downloading to MP3 this program pops up and obviously j can't decrpt it. Ideas, thanks

Amazing! One of the best implementations of GPG for mobile I have seen. Better UI and features than GnuPG! It easily exchange keys, encrypt/decrypt/sign: text, files. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is, that it needs to be password protected.

Probably the best implementation of gpg on android.

Looks great Looks and works great, this could be a model how could a general gpg interface look like. One thing missing is access to a file manager's interface - you can only encrypt/decrypt files in Download directory or audio/video/photo files.
