What is Google End-to-End Encryption
Google recently launches End-to-End Encryption, a chrome extension? What is Google end-to-end encryption and whats the purpose of that?
As it names the tool provides end-to-end Encryption for sending ad receiving emails securely. With that security tool the data leaving your browser will be encrypted until the message’s intended recipient decrypts it.
Google announced through their blog post says ‘Today, we’re adding to that list the alpha version of a new tool. It’s called End-to-End and it’s a Chrome extension intended for users who need additional security beyond what we already provide.”

‘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.
