‘While end-to-end encryption tools like PGP and GnuPG have been around for a long time, they require a great deal of technical know-how and manual effort to use. To help make this kind of encryption a bit easier, we’re releasing code for a new Chrome extension that uses OpenPGP, an open standard supported by many existing encryption tools.”

Anyone can use end-to-end to send and receive encrypted emails. It can be done through their existing Web-based email provider. You don’t have to to use Gmail to use end-to-end encryption, but you need chrome.
