To send me an encrypted email, use this PGP public key (fingerprint A45B 5601 FCCC A592 C569 2121 842F 7433 80F8 C0EB). Here's how PGP works. And here are Windows and Mac instructions.

Whether or not you use encryption, please follow these steps:

  • Don't use a work/school email address. Use a personal account. Even better, use an anonymous account that you only use for our communications (see below).
  • Don't use a work/school network or computer. Use a device you own, either from your home or from an open wifi network, like at a coffee shop or a library.
  • Use an anonymous account. If your identity is sensitive, set up a new email address from a public wifi network. Don't give any identifying information when you set it up.
  • Use Tor. For maximum security, use the anonymous Tor browser — instead of Chrome or Firefox — when setting up the account and using it.
  • Use innocuous subject lines. PGP only encrypts the body of an email, not the subject line or the "to" and "from" fields. If you use encryption, use innocuous subject lines.
