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.

Best way to use GPG on the go Beautifully easy to use, works well and integrates with pass/password store app. Thanks for this, would gladly pay a few bucks to support development.

Great App As a former user of APG, I loved this app. The ease of use, design, feature set... APG was great; but, to me, it was a bit outdated. I hope you'll continue the development of the app for the years to come.

Simple and Functional A well thought and planned app, could use some more upgrades to the UX functionality design wise, but overall it works as its supposed to and very easy to import and backup all your keys!

Great! A real 5-star app (similar to APG)- flexible & resilient tool. 4096bits RSA, (512SAH) & 256 AES, a combination of almost unbreakable cypher. You can encrypt msgs, emails, files etc ... exchange public keys with your secret lover ;-) & make the life of NSA difficult. Still, make sure that ur pw is at least 16 character (combination of all). It would be great if the app can only be accessed by a PW and a facility to clear all cached texts in the clipboard when exiting (it needs an exit function). Well done!
