Are You Worrying about Privacy and PRISM? Would you like to boost little security to your confidential mails? Then, here is a small solution for you.  SecureGmail is a Google chrome extension that allows you to encrypt your Gmail messages before sending.

Once you installed the extension, you can see a lock icon near to the Compose button in your Gmail.  Just click the icon to send the Secure Mail. Once you clicked the icon, you will get a normal Gmail "compose" interface with title "Secured"


In Secure mode, the Gmail can't track what you are typing and won't able to save the message in the Draft. 


Click the "Send Encrypted" button, now you will be asked to enter the password- a long & strong password will be good and don't enter any hints.

The best part is that the encryption process will be done in your local machine, Google won't be able to read the plain-text message.
