Add encryption to your webmail

Free email services are great. The only thing they lack is an encryption facility which is provided by default by any business level email service. Due to this the emails can be read by any middleman using a packet sniffer.

Now you can use FireGPG to encrypt your email messages. It is a firefox extension which adds support for encryption to email messages. For this it adds an entry to the context menu for easy accessibility and the encryption is done using GnuPG.

Currently only gmail is supported and support for other email service is being added.
