If we would not accept to receive our bank statements on a postcard and we always seal our love letters, why do keep sending non-encrypted emails?

Probably, because encrypting an email is not as simple as sealing an envelope. While it only takes a simple gesture to close an envelope, email encryption requires, namely: a pair of keys, a passphrase to activate them and a program to handle it all.

Or probably because we are led to believe that those who care for privacy in their communications have “something to hide”. If it is accepted to send and receive our letters in closed envelopes, why is it not to use encryption in a routine basis?

I will be sharing my limited knowledge here. I believe that whatever one does online, or off line, one’s Better Off Undetected.
