OpenKeychain helps you communicate more privately and securely. It uses high-quality modern encryption to ensure that your messages can be read only by the people you send them to, others can send you messages that only you can read, and these messages can be digitally signed so the people getting them are sure who sent them. OpenKeychain is based on the well established OpenPGP standard making encryption compatible across your devices and operating systems.

Modern encryption is based on digital “keys”. OpenKeychain stores and manages your keys, and those of the people you communicate with, on your Android. It also helps you find others’ keys online, and interchange keys by touching devices. But its most frequent use is in using those keys to encrypt and decrypt messages.

OpenKeychain integrates with
★ K-9 Mail
★ Conversations
★ and many more…

OpenKeychain is designed to be trustworthy. It’s Free Software with no secrets; anyone can examine and validate every bit of it.

    Extremely useful and well featured. Just needs the web-of-trust fully handled (which is apparently under dev)

    After decripting a file it should be possible to cancel the decripted file by zeroing it and making it unrecoverable with forensic tools. Another thing I miss is the possibility of revoking a key.

    Why can't I encrypt files from sources other than google drive? Importing keys I see Dropbox but not when wanting to encrypt files.

    Didn't fix the broken key problem, either, it still says no suitable key found when I try to decrypt something. Any ideas?
