The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has released an email self-defense guide that shows how anybody can encrypt their email communications. It requires some effort on your end, so be prepared to spend some time setting it up.
But if privacy means anything to you, then the little effort that you’re required to make to ensure that all your email communications are encrypted will be well worth it.
From the FSF blog post announcing the guide: “Email encryption is a simple way to give yourself a shield that can protect you and your community from the giant surveillance system we all face.”
