The modern era has seen an increased necessity for secure communications, but luckily there are many companies that have stepped up to provide an outlet for activists, journalists, and revolutionaries across the world. In this episode, we discuss PGP as a secure email utility, and some of the friction that PGP causes everyday users. We also talk about the differences between WhatsApp, Wickr, and Signal, and which to use in which situations. Lastly, we take a peak at Keybase--a new utility for identity verification and secure file sharing (and now chatting).
