Cryptoucan™ usage: Encrypting files from context menu on Windows

Written by Lída Hrnčířová on November 12, 2020.

You don’t always want to encrypt an email but maybe, just maybe, only the file you want to send – or even keep encrypted just for yourself. We’ve already published a step-by-step guide in a written form but today we are happy to show you this process in our brand new instructional video! Don’t worry, you’ll find a link to that written guide here, too!

In some cases one simply does not one to encrypt only emails – sometimes it’s better to encrypt the file itself that would be otherwise included in the email. That may be for storing files that are private but you still need them on your computer or getting those files safely to only those people you want to.

It’s actually super quick and easy! You don’t even need Cryptoucan™ for this operation since you are using the public keys of all parties involved. You only need them to decrypt, open those files. You just need to have the public keys imported to your key manager (Kleopatra).

There’s no reason to stall even more, watch the video below!
