Welcome to p≡p Documentation!¶
pretty Easy privacy (abbreviated as p≡p) is a cyber security solution which protects the confidentiality and reliability of communications for citizens, for public offices and for enterprises. It provides end-to-end cryptography through software that you install on your desktop or your tablet or your phone.
To exchange secure messages, you and your communication partner both need to install p≡p on your devices (e.g. computer, smartphone). After the installation you can start exchanging messages without any configuration. All messages (except the very first one) will be secured by p≡p. You can see this by the Privacy Status, which will be yellow (Secure). To make sure your communication partner is who he claims to be, you can also confirm the trustwords through a seconed channel (e.g. phone call or face-to-face meeting). After the trustwords are confirmed, new messages will have Privacy Status green (Secure & Trusted).
You find detailed documentation on how to use p≡p in this documentation. Further, you can also have a look at our FAQ (https://www.pep.security/faq.html.en#faq).
