Vivaldi PGP Encryption

Vivaldi PGP email encryption is perfect for new users of PGP email encryption. It’s easy to open an account at Vivaldi.net. it’s also free to open an account. To be able to use it you do need to put a telephone number in. This does take away some of the anonymity which you might like to use with your email security. It also means you can only set up as many accounts as you have phone numbers.

Open up the Vivaldi webmail and go to the settings and PGP keys create a new PGP key for yourself. This will give you the private key and the public key needed for you to send and receive emails using PGP encryption. You don’t get as many settings and possibilities to work with the PGP keys as you would get with the GPG Keychain which is what I use with the email client Mailmate. You don’t get the opportunity to sign keys for instance. You do get all the basics you need to send and receive encrypted email so if you’re a new user it’s just perfect.

I compare this service with Protonmail. Proton may lose easily use and you can send encrypted mails to non-proton mail users by using a password for the receiver to used to decrypt the email. You don’t get this with Vivaldi encrypted emails but with Vivaldi you can bring in public keys sent to you by your friends. This makes it easier to send PGP encrypted emails back to them. With Proton mail you would have two expect them to also use ProtonMail or for them to have their own setup of PGP encryption.

Good and Geeky highly recommends the use of this web-based encryption with PGP service from Vivaldi. I’ve also been using the Vivaldi browser which I think is quite impressive. It might even encourage me to change from the Brave Browser which I have been using lately.
