To encrypt your e-mail first, you need to download the encrypt communication extension to your browser.

Then go to G-mail. Compose your mail then select the body and right click to hit on Encrypt Communication.

Enter the password and click OK.

The receiver should also have this extension to decrypt your mail.

How Do You Encrypt An E-mail In Firefox?


If you want to encrypt your email message, there are two ways to do that but both using an extension or add-on: Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. If you are using Mozilla Firefox, download the add-on called Encrypted Communication.

Encrypted Communication Firefox extension

The add-on encrypts messages to be transmitted in a restricted manner basically to send email messages that contain sensitive data or to post privately on Facebook or any other social networking site. The add-in requires a restart of the browser after installing and supports Mozilla Firefox 3.0 until 56.x. Once the add-on is installed, go to Gmail and log in to your account.

Once logged in, compose your email message then right-click and select “Encrypt Communication.” Enter a password and click “OK.” This will then encrypt the message and ready to be sent. Now, to be able to access and read the message you sent, the person whom you send the message to should also install the add-on on their Mozilla Firefox browser.

Once they install the add-on, they should right-click and select “Decrypt Communication” and then provide the password you set for the message. The second method is to use the “SafeGmail” add-on on Google Chrome but unfortunately the add-on is no longer available.
