How to encrypt email in Thunderbird (and why you should)

Here’s how to protect your sensitive information from third parties.

I’m one of those people who depend on email communication. I have for years, and I cannot imagine I’ll ever not rely heavily on email. As I communicate with different people, I have to do so in different ways. For example, with certain contacts, I have to share sensitive information. When that’s the case, I tend to use encryption with my email.

Why? Simple. Encrypting an email prevents a third party from intercepting a communication and accessing the information within.
