Pretty Good Privacy, or PGP, is an encryption protocol for email. We recommend using Chrome and Firefox extension Mailvelope to easily get started with PGP. Please note that while PGP allows you to encrypt the contents of an email, metadata like the subject line, sender, receiver, and time of communication will not be encrypted and may be retained by your email provider. Visit Mailvelope’s website to learn more. Visit The Nation’s confidential tip page for additional methods of secure communication.
