Gmail Adds Easy Email Encryption

Posted by Eric Zeman, Jul 25, 2008 12:29 PM

Email can be a major security headache. That's why corporations take pains to ensure that their sensitive emails are protected. Sometimes that means using encryption. Gmail users always get encryption protection when signing in, but now it is easier to encrypt messages and everything else, too. [...]


It is really simple. Instead of using http://mail.google.com you should use https://mail.google.com.

Note the addition of the "S" after http. It is THAT simple... of course your email itself will be unencrypted. This method will only encrypt the email from your browser to their server. After that, it is cleartext for all snoopers to see; email is like sending a postcard.

If you really want to encrypt your Gmail email, then try using FireGPG for Firefox.
