How to encrypt e-mail using the Clipboard Encryptor

Please make sure the Clipboard Encryptor's icon is located in the tray notification area.

Let's imagine we assigned the global hot key Ctrl-F12 with Clipboard Encryptor. This hot key will be used to encrypt and decrypt text in clipboard.

For example, we want to sent protected block of text via email.

Our secret text begins after words: ".. about flowers..."

Original secret e-mail to be encrypted


We select text to protect using mouse:

The text is being selected to be encrypted in the e-mail program

Then it is needed to press the Ctrl-C hot key to copy the selected text to the Windows Clipboard.

Then we press our hot key Ctrl-F12 (we associated this key with AEP Clipboard Encryptor).

The clipboard encryptor intercepts this hot key, reads text from clipboard and asks for the password. This password will be used by Clipboard Encryptor to encrypt text using AES 256 bit.

Encrypting text in the text encryption tool

1. Enter password

2. Click TAB button

3. Enter the same password again

4. Click ENTER button.

now switch back to your email program and press Ctrl-V hot key to replace selected text by encrypted one.

Encrypted text in the email program


Done! Now you can send this email. Nobody can read encrypted text without password and AEP.
