How to encrypt text with GPA
In order to encrypt text, you need to first copy and paste the unencrypted text to GPA’s Clipboard. Then select Encrypt from File menu or from icon ribbon.
In the dialog, select public keys which can decrypt the encrypted text. You can select multiple keys although every select key increases the encrypted text’s length. Also note, that if you do not select your self, you are unable decrypt the text. You have also an option to Sign the document so that the receiver of the message can verify the sender.
If you have not set the public key as trusted, you get warning that you are unsure if the key belongs to the receiver.
If you are signing the message / file, you need to enter your private key’s password.
Copy and paste the encrypted message to the email or IM application.
