Encrypted Emails Send by Facebook to Users Privacy and Security

There was a time when Mark Zuckerberg did not believe in privacy. But as my colleague Will acknowledged, Facebook has been working on cleaning up that whole state of affairs as security and content controls become a larger priority to users. The latest step is adding an option for Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) encryption on notification emails.

Facebook sends emails for things like password changes and sure account activity, and these dispatches would possibly excerpt personal posts or reveal sensitive time stamps. PGP encryption keeps all of this locked down, therefore not even your email provider will see it.

The social network announced that it's gradually rolling out the option for users to place a public key (a type of mailing address, and one of the 2 keys you wish to unlock PGP encryption) and PGP fingerprint (a shortened authenticator) in their Contact Info in the About section. And Facebook is using GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) for implementation.

Since Facebook conjointly offers a Tor site for anonymous affiliation, it's becoming additional possible to use the social network whereas still maintaining rigorous privacy and security.
