If you want to understand how Jumble email encryption works, this is the best place to start!
Jumble provides a secure email service that integrates with existing email providers so you don’t need to change your email address or change how you interact with your emails.
Jumble was designed so that it could be used without any knowledge of data security, encryption or encryption keys, but if you’d like to know more then read on.
Jumble uses global data encryption standards to secure email data; in fact we use 3 different sets of encryption keys for each email you send.
You need a Jumble account and the other person’s email address; you do not need to exchange passwords, key files or anything else.
Once installed, Jumble will appear inside your normal email compose window - to send an encrypted email simply click 'Secure Send'.
Every recipient will need to register with Jumble to access an encrypted email - registration is free and we never charge users to read secure emails.
Once Jumble software is installed, you can read encrypted emails simply by opening them - Jumble will automatically detect encrypted emails and will decrypt as you open them.
Decrypted emails are not saved anywhere and are secured again once you close the email.
If Jumble is not installed when you open an encrypted email, you will be given instructions on how to register with Jumble in order to access the email.
If your recipients can't install Jumble they will still be able to access your secure email via our website. Our website has an online email decryption page to help in these situations.
Note: all encryption and decryption is done within your browser so we never see your data.

Jumble provides a secure email service in two ways:
Any client can consume the API and request public and private keys:
Key-pairs are uniquely associated with your email address and Jumble will generate a new key-pair for a specified email address when it’s not already available.
Jumble uses global data encryption standards; in fact we use 2 different sets of encryption keys for each email you send:
We use standard encryption algorithms that have been published and peer reviewed over many years. Specifically, we use 256-bit AES keys to encrypt the email data and then use a 2048-bit RSA public key to encrypt the AES key. All data is encrypted in the browser, which means nobody, including us, ever see your data; Jumble provides real end-to-end secure email.
