How do I import OpenPGP keypair(s) and other public keys?

To import an OpenPGP key pair or a public key, go to your account Settings -> Messages -> Encryption:

  • For Importing Key pair/Personal key:
    1. Click on Add Personal key
    2. Click on Import a key -> Copy/Paste the armored key text OR Click on Import from file (ASCII-armoured version).
  • For Importing other Public key:
    1. Click on Add Public key

      Note: Mailfence does not allow end-to-end encrypted email sending to recipient address(es) with revoked/expired OpenPGP public keys.

Moreover, you can export OpenPGP keypairs and other public keys.

Note: Make sure to add the right OpenPGP public key by verifying it’s fingerprint.

If you still are not able to import an OpenPGP key pair or other public key, please send us an email to support@mailfence.com (PGP key).
