Editors' Review

With its effortless operation and thorough setup, GPG Suite for Mac represents a solid solution for encrypting e-mail. Its ability to work with the Mac Mail application, seamlessly, is an advantage over other programs.

GPG Suite for Mac's wizard walks the user through the initial steps to set up encryption. Users must designate e-mail addresses and enter a passphrase for use. It's a small touch, but we liked that the program warns you if your passphrase is weak. While creating a new e-mail in the Mail application, the user sees additional icons for encrypting and signing the e-mail. Note that you can't encrypt a message until the recipient is added, but this doesn't reduce the program's functionality. GPG Suite for Mac allows you to export a key phrase pair, allowing someone on the other end to decrypt the message by entering it. From the setup menu, which is well designed, users can select buttons on the top for importing and exporting phrases, as well as creating new ones. The main part of the window displays a listing of created keys, along with the associated e-mail, date created, and a short identification code.

For those users who want a basic and easy way to encrypt e-mails, GPG Suite for Mac fits the bill and performs well.

Fixes
    We fixed a glitch in our auto-updater.
  • Don't restart GPG Keychain so fast. This will prevent GPG Keychain from launching while other components where not ready yet. The result was an empty key list.
