In light of Snowden’s NSA revelations, more folks are worried about protecting their privacy. PGP is a powerful product that enables folks to exchange messages privately. Here is how Wikipedia describes it:
Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is a data encryption and decryption computer program that provides cryptographic privacy and authentication for data communication. PGP is often used for signing, encrypting, and decrypting texts, e-mails, files, directories, and whole disk partitions and to increase the security of e-mail communications.
Using PGP to secure your communications is not that difficult. But these PGP plugins make it even easier:
PGP Key Generator: generates private and public PGP keys. You can technically use this plugin to encrypt or decrypt PGP messages.
SimpleSecure: a secure contact form that encrypts messages using a PHP implementation of PGP / GPG. You can manage your public GPG keys via the settings panel.
These PGP plugins help you protect your communications with encryption. You don’t have to be super technical to use these.
