What does PGP stand for?
Last modified on 20 February 2020 11:45 AM

PGP (short for Pretty Good Privacy) is a public key encryption program originally written in 1991. Since that time, PGP has become the standard for encryption of email on the Internet. (Pretty Good Privacy is actually a misnomer, as PGP is very powerful encryption.)

In an age where hackers, identity thieves and even the government can listen in on unprotected communications, it becomes more vital than ever to have a fast, easy-to-use way to protect your messages from prying eyes. StartMail combines the world-reknowned encryption strength of PGP with an intuitive, simple interface that can help you keep your messages private, even when communicating with other email services that don't offer StartMail's level of protection.
