PGP public key and fingerprint

If you would like to send me an encrypted message, you can download my PGP public key and use my keybase profile to help verify my identity. Note that a third party may still be able to access encrypted messages if your computer or mine is compromised in some way (this would include through corporate surveillance). Even if the content of a message is encrypted, other data such as the to, from, subject and date of the email may be recorded and stored by service providers involved in delivering the message. Depending on the parties involved, a permanent record of this information may be stored and disclosed to third parties under certain conditions.
