OpenKeychain helps you communicate more privately and securely. It uses encryption to ensure that your messages can be read only by the people you send them to, others can send you messages that only you can read, and these messages can be digitally signed so the people getting them are sure who sent them. OpenKeychain is based on the well established OpenPGP standard making encryption compatible across your devices and systems. For a list of compatible software for Windows, Mac OS, and other operating systems consult http://openpgp.org/software/.

Modern encryption is based on digital “keys”. OpenKeychain stores and manages your keys, and those of the people you communicate with, on your Android smartphone. It also helps you find others’ keys online, and exchange keys. But its most frequent use is in using those keys to encrypt and decrypt messages.

  1. Adam H-avatar

    I had a nightmare of a time trying to get my private keys onto my mac. I learned that its much easier to go the other way. Generate your keys in GPG or whatever you use on mac and export your private key from there. You can generate a temporary key on here and share the public key with yourself, encrypt your private asc key file and send it to yourself. Its easy to import that file into openkeychain once decrypted. Then delete the file. I use thunderbird and GPG on macbook & fairEmail on droid.

  2. C McC-avatar

    apk The read from clipboard does work, you first have to go to "manage my keys" import key from file click on the 3 dots on the top right and the option to read from clipboard is there. Apparently, this is a limitation from Android that was introduced so they had to do this.

  3. Mike Whittle-avatar

    Worked great, now all of a sudden I cant import any keys off of my clipboard or send a key straight to the app. As of right now the app is useless, which sucks because it was the best one out there before the update ruined it

  4. Jerry Holland-avatar

    It worked great the first few times I used the clipboard to decrypt keys then all of the sudden it does not work. Every time now it shows, "no data to decrypt" when I use it. I'm now looking for another pgp app unless they can fix this. I am running Android 9 on a Motorola g7 optimo maxx, I was very happy with it until this happened. Hope you can fix it.

    This application lets you store GPG keys and encrypt/decrypt messages. However, what if someone needs to decrypt a file? Easy. Share it with OpenKeychain, and select "Encrypt with OpenKeychain" and it will be encrypted. Same works with decryption.

  6. Gilbert Chu-avatar

    Pretty good, some bugs, some limitations of android os. It would be really nice if you added a lock (ie. PIN to unlock the app). I have never seen another app which stores sensitive data without PIN to unlock.

  7. Sss Sss-avatar

    Has an issue with importing private key. Wouldnt work despite trying multiple methods including clipboard, import text file, and import .asc file. Tried importing in gpg instesd of .asc/ ascii and it worked after that. However it doesnt work when you directly import the .gpg file, i had to rename it to .txt for it to work. Suggested improvements for developer: please enable import of .gpg files with the .gpg extension, also please enable import of private keys in ascii (readable) format

  8. Daniel Reyna-avatar

    So have to learn all the is and outs but like like a great app for when you're away from your computer and need to use on the go.

  9. Clayton Dewey-avatar

    Really easy to use and integrates nicely with FairEmail, the open-source email app I use.

  10. Michael Sage-avatar

    Hard to use. No instructions. Help section very limited. Can't figure out how to encrypt a text. When I copy It puts the actual message in there along with a signature. Confusing.

  11. Martin S-avatar

    So easy to use and neccessary for encryption and encrypted communications. Dont forget everyone is listening.

  12. Brandy Scott-avatar

    Was great for months but now wont import private key. Still no upgrade. Was once the easiest product out there. Now it won't take PGP keys from clipboard.

  13. Franco Lewison-avatar

    This an excellent piece of open source software from fabulous maintainers and it integrates really nicely into K9. 😎

    Can not decrypt anything, not much help out there, have given up after days of trying, will now uninstall.

  16. Hara Nara-avatar

    Dunno why they did but it longer decrypts my data from the clipboard despite knowing I've imported my key successfully from GPA. Absolutely garbage app now.

  17. Sam Sabrosa-avatar

    Never trust any pgp app that requires internet connection.

  18. Adam Smith-avatar

    Secure wifi transfer doesn't work 90% of the time

    All in all, a very great replacement to APG. I have one problem though which is that it is not allowing me to use older keys as they're branded 'insecure'. I get that it could be a problem, but for certain legacy items which cannot have the key changed, I'm now being forced to use no encryption at all. Is it possible to give the user the option to use the key anyway, even if you deem it to be insecure?

  24. Paul Nebeling-avatar

    Missing a key feature (for me, at least). While it does have the ability to utilize two-key cryptography on both files and presumably emails via the clipboard, it seemingly lacks the ability to sign or verify signatures on emails. While this doesn't render the app useless, it does make it less than useful to me unless I'm willing to replace my email client. It's been uninstalled.

  25. Tech Bgp-avatar

    please give users more options for encryption , and let them decide on their own ,which encryption to use. Password should be required for decryption of file or texts, it should not do it automatically.

  26. Joe L-avatar

    Have used this app for a while with no issues until last Android update. As another reviewer mentioned, the app will no longer recognize pgp text in the clipboard. If you copy your pgp text and click "read from clipboard", an error message pops up saying "no data to decrypt". This needs to be fixed ASAP, as the app has no decrypting ability. ..my review would be 5 stars if this were fixed.

  27. Craig cooper-avatar

    Was perfect until now - it won't read from clipboard anymore when decrypting! So the app is basically pointless now Edit: almost a month since this problem has started and they still haven't simply added the option to manually paste instead of reading from the clipboard! If anyone knows another app that handles pgp keys on android let me know please as I (used to) use this daily and now it's completely functionless

  28. Y G-avatar

    It works great with few bugs

  29. Louis Cypher-avatar

    Always been a sound app sand most importantly with an app like this, open source, and it's free..Compliments to the Dev, just wish i could get a full PPG that could be used across all platforms from Windows etc to Android and iOS

    So far seems to be the best solution for GPG/PGP on my Samsung Galaxy S10 Android phone. Was pleasantly surprised to find that when I plugged my SCR3500C portable smartcard reader with USB-C adapter that I use for my MacBookPro that the phone detected it and asked to use it with OpenKeychain; however, that is when my hopes were deflated when I found that OpenKeychain couldn't use my OpenPGP smartcard in the reader. I have a published key policy that doesn't allow for installing a private key on a device other than the smartcard so it's useless for me to be able to sign email messages when sending from my phone, but I can at least import public keys and verify signatures on messages I receive now which is an improvement. Being able to use my OpenPGP smartcard would be a feature I'd actually pay for if it worked.

  31. White Hat HT-avatar

    Very helpful and interesting app. Using for a year or more. But, I'm facing some inconvenience due to a missing feature. In this app, I found no way to generate and export a revocation certificate locally. For cases, where I don't want to upload my keys to a keyserver and share my public key locally using file sharing, email or IM, I get no option to share my revocation certificate with anyone locally (using the above mentioned medias). Adding that feature will be helpful for people like me.

    Dominick, please stop suggesting K-9 Mail. It has not been updated since September 2, 2018. I am trying it for the 1st time with your app. It will not let me encrypt, even to reply to my encrypted ProtonMail account. It is not all it's cracked up to be. I am going back to K@Mail, which has always worked correctly.

  33. Kurt Franklin-avatar

    Sounds Great in theory but doesn't work for me. Same issue as others about unable to open clipboard.

  34. pioruns-avatar

    Can't decrypt copy pasted Open PGP e-mail, straight from clipboard. Useless.

  35. Joshua Yeow-avatar

    Crashes are infrequent but when it does crash, it'll be a crash loop or the app will no longer open without crashing. Reinstalling the app fixes this. The notification for linking to contacts keeps showing up. Also, I wonder if there are other apps than K-9 Mail that works with this app? K-9 Mail doesn't work.

  36. 1337 xa-avatar

    Not working. When you have a encrypted text in pasteboard it just gives you an error that no data to decrypt. Total fail.

  37. Barley Singer-avatar

    the app insists on my using a password when I try to encrypt the very first time. Finally figured put it wants my PGP PassPhrase (app uses the wrong terminogy. PassPhrase is the right jargon, not Password). What really did in my head is you ask for a Password to ENCRYPT the 1st time, but PassPhrase is only used for DECRYPTION. And you might want to try DOCUMENTATION. Apps are not supposed to have zero documentation. its lazy. up your game.

  38. Buck N-avatar

    Will not let me use keys exchanged in person because import fails if not published on keyservers. Old version let me do this. Now I can't encrypt/decrypt messages on android with keys I have used before. I have to wait till I get home and decrypt or send encrypted messages on my home computer.

  39. Sven K-avatar

    Used to be great app now it wont even read clipboard. Happened after android 10 update. Which sucks a lot. Please fix

  40. codeartha-avatar

    Simply the BEST gpg/pgp keyring app on smartphones and tablets. I used APG before and now it's been 3 years I discovered openkeychain and I love it. Only regret is APG integrates in K9 mail and this does not, but that issue comes from K9 not openkeychain. Anyway I also moved on from K9 to typeapp that dont support it either so no hart feelings. To few of my friends use PGP, so I can manage the few encrypted messaged I get with copy paste. The key creation GUI is also top notch, one of the best.

  41. Malte Gerdes-avatar

    the app is easy to use and overall good, i have only one issue: What is the exact altorithm used to encrypt the backup keys ? the FAQ says i should use gpg to decrypt it, but this doesn't work (maybe wrong version). Are there other programs which can be used to decrypt the key thus i can pipe it into gpg --import ? using gpg version 2.2.15. It also gives: unknown armor header: Passphrase-Format and Begin ...

  42. james phan-avatar

    Please for the love of God fix the Android 10 issues it can't read data from clipboard it's in the known issues already

  43. A Google user-avatar

    After crearing a private and public key, everything seemed OK. Then I tried to export my private key to my Linux machine, which simply failed to import the private key, as it said that there is no data. I don't think the app was able to create a proper keypair.

  44. Michal Cizek-avatar

    Decent app. It works well with other apps for which you may actually want to encrypt. I dislike however that you can't decide what key size you want to use and anything that goes beyond the 3000 and whatnot bits is not recognised.

  45. Vyas Nellutla-avatar

    Works well! But the app doesnt contact sync. Everytime I enable it in app i have to also grant the premission in Settings manually (no popup telling me so) and after another keyserver sync it's disabled and doesn't reenable without going back into settings again.

  46. Trash Man-avatar

    You can get this to work with Tor. Copy the pgp from tor to notepad, you will need to do minor formatting so it matches the way it looks in tor, then copy to clipboard and hit the decrypt and boom there ya go. Thanks for app works for my purposes

  47. Mathew Smith-avatar

    Works fine. Don't know what all these complaints are about. Works with tor works with protonmail .

  48. Ian Sebryk-avatar

    what a pile. the UI is pretty but confusing. you can't import multiple keys at a time, which means you have to spend HOURS doing it if you work at a corp of any size. terminology is inconsistent with industry standards. it's slow and forces key standards whether you need them or not, which makes working with legacy systems impossible. man, I miss APG...

    Management works fine. But decrypting text doesn't work as app fails to recognize text from tor browser even when manually editing it. Same text gets decrypted just fine when using gpg4win. Would be nice if devs could fix this.

  50. Greg T.-avatar

    Very useful for managing keys on Android and performing encryption. I use it to encrypt files before uploading to cloud storage, and it works well for me.

    Cannot send any email with K-9 Mail, using OpenKeychain and encryption enabled. Can receive and open encrypted email. Using ECC key pair with elliptic curve (Ed25519) and Android 9. All software is updated frequently.

    super easy way to get my friends onboard with pgp.

  53. Kevin-avatar

    doesn't work for me. keep getting "encountered an error reading input data". seems to be a problem from 2015. are you still developing this?

    Works as expected! No problems what so ever. Running on Viper OS 3.1.1 Android 7

  55. terry wagg-avatar

    Pointless Cannot decrypt encrypted text from clipboard. Getting data error. GARBBAGE AVOID.

  56. Liem N-avatar

    Works ok but in some cases, it failed to decrypt the email without any error. I have no idea why.

  57. 阮越新-avatar

    Maybe I'm using it wrong but it seems to have issues with decrypting signed messages. But all in all, it's ok.

  58. Keith G-avatar

    Becomes unstable when decrypting a large file ~1GB :(

  59. Phone Record-avatar

    Unable to determine private key from public key. Text appears over existing text on manage key screen (this is due to system font change). What is the encryption strength (bits) It will not import key from clip board.

    It works well, however it keeps asking for access to contacts, despite it is already allowed in Android settings.

  61. Travis Cosmo-avatar

    I had same problem as others who 1 star. To encypt a file/text you have to import the public key of the person your sending message to. The key is big and you will probably need to go to bit.ly to get it.

    Before the dev says "open a ticket on GitHub", STOP. MY GITHUB IS LOCKED. That aside... HOW IS IT NOT A "USUAL CASE" *NOT* to do something as f**king trivial to CLEAR SIGN?? (dev's answer on GitHub.) I can NOT sign the Ubuntu CoC with this PoS! Uninstalling.

  63. Berb Kidder-avatar

    This app is garbage. Published my public key and I get a "no valid OpenPGP encrypted or signed data found" message when I attempt to decrypt incoming messages from my clipboard.

  65. Anthony Giwa-avatar

    Can't import from the clipboard, I've uninstalled the damn thing

  66. Graeme Go-avatar

    I managed to decrypt a key from my keyboard once and never again. Seems broken. Massive gap in the market for a decent app here.

  67. Rylan Shearn-avatar

    it works fine, but i think the interface could do with improvement, especially all the noises it makes

  68. Patrick Gunn-avatar

    Absolutely phenomenal. Could not be more satisfied. Easier than Kleopatra and more intuitive. Great job guys seriously.

  69. Jane Dough-avatar

    Best pgp key management software on any platform, i wish it was available on other platforms

  70. Josh Broussard-avatar

    Link keys to contacts is quite fond of reverting itself to an unselected state. Otherwise seems to do what it says.

  71. A Google user-avatar

    decrypt only to binary on screen and clipboard? how useless Really? No output? Just share?? Am I missing something..why would you not save the decrypted output.

  72. Jonathan Mills-avatar

    The app is amazing for identity cryptography. It however does need to support things like CA signing and PKS 7 AND 12 for key storage.

    App cannot read pgp messages from clipboard or input from plain text files to decrypt. Totally unusable to read encrypted messages making it essentially pointless

  74. Koyote Kola-avatar

    OprnKeyChain integrated right in with K-9 Mail. The set up was easy, and it even found the keys automatically. Encrypted email is easy now!

    The app is so easy to use and very functional.

  76. Matt Dudlo-avatar

    The app is no longer able to decrypt data from the clipboard in Android 10.

  77. Steph-avatar

    No valid open PGP message found... Of course, because it's for PGP, that nobody uses, except windows users, and not GPG, the de facto internet standard. Useless.

  78. K-avatar

    Works well for PGP text encryption / decryption, haven't tried anything else

  79. Silv3rSurf3r-avatar

    Great app to secure text, files and many other items.

  80. Michael Rupp-avatar

    Fantastic OpenPGP let manager I've never used email encryption keys before yesterday. Today I have 14 key sets managed on my mobile device that i made on my workstation.

  81. Xa Ya Za Za-avatar

    Won't read clipboard. Pretty useless app..

  82. Gavin Ralbag-avatar

    Doesn't decrypt anything even using let's made with openkeychain. Used to work IDK what happened.

  83. Steven Lawler-avatar

    App doesn't work. Added my Yubi key and tried to encrypt some text, but it just sits on 0%. SGS9+

  84. A Google user-avatar

    Could you please explain why this app needs access to: camera, contacts, find accounts on device?

    Constantly crashes before I can even do anything.

  87. Lukas-avatar

    it's great! but is there an option for me to get my encrypted text directly in an .asc document? im missing this.

  88. 벚꽃이재-avatar

    Simply, the best app for PGP management on Android.

    won't read keys from clipboard this is a big issue for me will you fix this?

  91. ZapperTech DTV-avatar

    Look it includes a hash with the message, so basically it is useless, if you remove the hash it wouldn't decrypt

  92. A Google user-avatar

    excellent app. I'm using this with pass and yubikey.

  93. Frank Amo-avatar

    so far it has been self-explanitory to set up and will update of any progress or concerns...

    App auto updated over wifi despite auto update being turned off for all apps.

  97. LickTheCheese-avatar

    its a nice way to store your PGP keys and there are no ads

  98. Robbie Fisher-avatar

    Crashes every time I try to import the notepad when decrypting

  99. Robert Hubick-avatar

    Just works well. Makes encryption a breeze on android

  100. Nekro Reaper-avatar

    Great for working with clients so their data or files dont end up getting leaked. And if they were to, it wouldnt be my fault.
