Email Encryption from Virtru | Encrypted Email Service



Privacy concerns have become a major issue for Internet users, and the privacy of email is no exception. Every email you send is potentially being profiled by advertisers, screened by government agencies, and perhaps even intercepted by hackers who would like to use your personal information for their own ends. Virtu takes care of all that. The extension, which is tremendously easy to install, works with Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and Outlook to encrypt the emails you want kept private. Using the basic service, which is free, readers may click a single button to turn encryption on. The receiver then gets a message explaining what you have done and how to access the key to decrypt and open the email. While this may sound complicated, the process is actually quite intuitive. Virtu also offers more advanced features for five dollars per month, such as HIPPA compliance and the ability to revoke access to emails that have already been sent. [CNH]
