Creating a Key

If you want to receive encrypted documents from a provider, you need a personal key.

This is how it works

  1. Click on the gear wheel icon and then select Account > Keyring > Create new key.
  2. Assign a Name and a Password for the key. If necessary, enable Use this key as default key to set a new default key.
  3. Click on Save.
  4. Download the key file by clicking on Download key. Be sure to save the key file in a secure location.
  5. Click on Close to close the dialog.


Only you personally can recover the password. If you forget the password, you can no longer decrypt your files. Therefore, make sure that you also keep the password in a secret place.
