Email Encryption- The Why And How Of It!

Dec 17th 2014 at 4:08 AM

Technology has changed our lives many folds in the past few decades. One of the best inventions of all time, one that encompasses all and affects every facet of every person’s life on this planet, is of course the internet. Getting your information to travel across borders of physical distances and time lags has completely revolutionized the way we go about our daily business. Whether it is something as trivial as a Facebook update or something sensitive like national metrics that can affect a new government policy – anything and everything is now exchanged over the World Wide Web.

The cyber world which we used to think was safe and secure has started to get attacked by several hackers and people who are looking for important and valuable information to misuse. At the same time, emails have become an important and essential source of communication including official as well as for sensitive matters. To make sure that these emails are just read by the parties intended and not by people who are looking for something juicy and to save them from the hands of hackers, encrypted email has become very important.

There are times when you want to send data via the internet and want it to remain secure. The travelling of said data through several servers can enable a third party viewing. To send an encrypted email will ensure that the data you have sent will be seen only by the party it has been intended to and it will not be seen by any unauthorized person. To make sure that only you and the intended recipient can see the email, you both should have the same email encryption software. The same type of software will enable you and your friend to encrypt as well as decrypt the email.

The hackers or the people who know more about the computers have derived several methods through which they can read and update the emails that are sent these days. If the email you are sending is a fun one, you probably won't care if someone touches it on it's way, but if you are sending a personal email or sensitive data to someone, there are chances that it can get into wrong hands and probably will spoil your personal or professional life. To avoid such a situation try using an email encryption software.

An email encryption software can be found very easily in the internet. The internet has several options to help you ensure security. But before choosing a software remember it should be compatible with the internet browser you are comfortable in using. This ensures that you can send and receive an encrypted email at the comfort of your browser. Also read the notes from the publisher and developer to understand the software in a better way and use it properly. Before using the software, make sure that you understand what sort of software you are about to use and how it can be used properly to deliver a secure email.
