Can Google read the contents of the emails?

Thanks for this great plugin! Can Google read the contents of the email once it's unencrypted and is being shown in my browser?

Hello, FlowCrypt uses end-to-end encryption that is designed so that only you and your intended recipients can read it.

When using FlowCrypt in the browser, decrypted messages are being displayed in a separate frame that Google doesn't have access to even if they deliberately tried to. They would first have to somehow update your browser to one that includes a deliberate vulnerability, but that's more of a stretch.

I personally use SRWare Iron (chrome based) for my primary browser.

FlowCrypt (formerly CryptUp) simplifies email encryption (PGP) so that anyone can use it. It's available for Chrome, Firefox and Android. Learn more
