What happens when recipient doesn't use FlowCrypt or PGP?

I just received your message. I am really excited to start using this for my medical billing business. When someone receives an encrypted message from me, and they do not use crypt up, how do they open the email? Sorry I am very new to this.

If they have no compatible plugin, you will be asked to protect the message with a one time password.

You'll need to communicate that password to the recipient. They'll receive a link, and will need that password to decrypt the message online.

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