Hi,
I would like to send encrypted text within mails that would work both on PC & iPhone. On PC, the free BestCrypt Text Encoder is fine but I need to decode/encode also on iPhone mails.  Could you recommend a solution ?
Thanks.

I use PGP/GPG to handle email encryption on the PC and Android (via APG).  Surely there is a PGP/GPG client for IOS?  Forgive me, if not, as I don't own an iPhone.

Take a look at iPGmail and oPenGP in the app store.

Can't vouch for either since I don't trust my iPhone to begin with. It's a proprietary black box - so any sense of real personal data security you may have is either wishful thinking, or misplaced hope at best.

About the only "signal security "that's still workable is a single-use cipher pad used in conjunction with a piece of paper delivered by a human courier. If a message truly needs to be kept secure - keep it off the grid. Completely off.

Thanks for the directions !  I'll look into them !  I am a little bit afraid that PGP is too "heavy" or complicated to use.  But first things first, optimization will come later on.

At least with Android, if you are brave enough to root your device and get a grip on things. A lot of people either don't have the knowledge or inclination to do that, though.
