      Thank you all for your feedback. Please let us explain in more detail why we don’t plan to add pgp-support at the moment:

      Current encryption standards like pgp and S/MIME have several issue that we plan to address with Tutanota. These standards do not support forward secrecy and are not resistant to attacks from quantum computers.

      In addition, it is important to us that the subject line in emails is also encrypted. That’s why we have developed a solution that is also based on recognized algorithms (RSA and AES) and that automatically encrypts the subject, the content and the attachments. In the future, we plan to upgrade these algorithms to quantum-resistant ones that also support forward secrecy.

      We also see the importance that Tutanota needs to be interoperable with other encryption solutions. We will develop an API so that Tutanota users can communicate with users of other…

      I understand that the title not being encrypted is a valid concern.

      HOWEVER, the password system is simply unusable for me and my friends. Nobody wants to type in a password every time they want to read an email and visit a completely different page. GPG through Mailvelope is a much friendlier solution.

      Aside from a few testing emails, I haven't sent any encrypted emails from Tutanota and this is the reason why.
