Pretty Good Privacy is a cryptographic software that was designed to protect the privacy of confidential emails against hackers and unintended recipients. PGP makes sure that only the person you are sending the email to and no other will be able to open it and lay eyes on its contents. 

PGP does its job by using two ‘keys’, or mathematical equations, that are used in cryptography. The first key, called a public key, translates the raw file or message into an unintelligible code. The second key, called a private key, is known only to the recipient who uses it to open the file.
