When I decided to set up my Mac with PGP encrypted communications, I could not believe how hard it was – not just to set up the software, but to understand how to use PGP properly. There was no “PGP for Dummies” tutorial for OS X on the internet. So I decided to write one. This is my ├╝ber simple, nerd-free tutorial for anyone on Mac. In it, I will:

  1. Cover exactly how to install and configure PGP on OS X
  2. Demonstrate how to use PGP in real life
