Only one of us knows how to use encryption

If only you or in turn the recipient knows how to use public key encryption, it’s now possible to send a secure one way message. The person with the public key pair registers an account with https://keybase.io and uploads their public key to it, creating an identity on the portal. The sender can compose an encrypted message using your online space on this portal “https://keybase.io/encrypt#username“. Keep in mind this is for one-way communication. If you would like to establish a secure channel with your recipients, please read I want to learn about encrypting email. If you would like to investigate other options of securing your messages, please go to I want to investigate other options.
