    Hi

    Good day !!

    What's the simple and safe app for PGP, GPG on Macbook Air, High sierra ?

    just need to make a pair of keys, export the public keys and get some mail .

    Pretty basic is good enough. Command line,graphical all ok as long as there is proper help

    Please reply with your personal experiences

    .... thanks ...regards ..

    The only one I use and would recommend is GnuPG: https://gnupg.org/download/index.html

    I've been using GPGTools for several years now: https://gpgtools.org

    The High Sierra (macOS 10.13) version is still in beta, but I've been running it w/o problem for the past ~6 weeks. It integrates nicely with Mail. It is still free, but the programmers were planning to charge a fee for the final version for High Sierra (they announced similar plans for Sierra last year, but in the end released the stable version for free).

    thanks for your reply

    Didn't know that high sierra would have a fee

    Is there a way to downgrade to sierra now ? or ?

    and this is what I see on apple website ...don't know where the small print on "fee" is added (not contesting your view, just wondering the amount of damage)
