When you mail a letter to your friend, you hope shell be the only person who reads it. But a lot could happen to that letter on its way from you to her, and prying eyes might try to take a look. Thats why we send important messages in sealed envelopes, rather than on postcards.

Email works in a similar way. Emails that are encrypted as theyre routed from sender to receiver are like sealed envelopes, and less vulnerable to snoopingwhether by bad actors or through government surveillance than postcards.

But some email is more secure than others. So to help you better understand whether your emails are protected by encryption, were launching a new section in the Transparency Report.
