Do I have to set up FlowCrypt on every device?

Hi, I setup FlowCrypt on a selection of work and personal gmail accounts via my laptop.

On my PC I'm getting a prompt for setup again. Do I have to set it up on every device?

if so, what does that mean for my public and private keys?

thanks

Hello,

yes, you have to set it up on each device individually (you should do this on each device where you want to read your encrypted messages).

A thing to note is that you should not create a new private key on these devices. You should be automatically guided to import the key from your other device.

Depending on your setup, it will either find the appropriate key automatically (and you will only need your pass phrase), or it will ask you to export the key from the original device and import it on the new device during setup.
