Between constant password breaches and the NSA looking in on everything you do, you’ve probably got privacy on the mind lately. If you’re looking for a little personal privacy in your communications with friends and loved ones, or you just want to trust that the documents you email to your accountant or client aren’t being intercepted and read, you’ll need to encrypt those messages. Most email is sent as plain text. This means that anyone can intercept email messages. To rescue ourselves from man in middle attack we must have to use email encryption. Mailvelope is a browser extension that allows exchanging encrypted emails following the OpenPGP encryption standard.
