Open Standard

Autocrypt is an open specification for e-mail encryption. Under the hood, it uses OpenPGP and other e-mail standards.

What is Autocrypt?

Autocrypt is a set of guidelines for developers to achieve convenient end-to-end-encryption of e-mails. It specifies how e-mail programs negotiate encryption capabilities using regular e-mails.

For users, Autocrypt Level 1 offers single-click, opt-in encryption, eases encrypted group communications, and provides a way to setup encryption on multiple devices.

Does it already work?

The first specification, Level 1, was released in December 2017. A few mail programs are already capable of Autocrypt, others want to be during Spring 2018.

Please join us in implementing and refining Autocrypt Level 1 and other upcoming specifications. For any further questions or feedback, see our Contact Page.
