    Send email that only the recipient can read


    By Lincoln Spector

    Worried about the U.S. Government spying on you? Facebook, Google, Microsoft and criminals could be spying on you, too.
    Internet service providers and others can and do view personal email. Here's how to securely send private information.

    I have been using Hushmail for many years. It uses OpenPGP and supports encrypted attachments. Messages sent between Hushmail subscribers are encrypted by default. There is nothing like as much work as in Mailvelope to set up a Hushmail account.

    Limited free accounts are available and a paid subscription is cheap enough at about US$35.00 a year.

    The problem is that almost no one believes that email is insecure. Unless compelled to use encrypted email, very few people will use it.

    It would not surprise me if the NSA could decrypt Hushmail messages but I think it should work against interception by non-State actors.
