NouveauPG is the result of almost two years of research, design, and development of a PGP client that was accessible to less technical users that desire strong encryption.

Every inconsequential option has been removed from the user interface and only information that is actually needed to verify the validity of a public key certificate is displayed. NouveauPG automatically uses the best encryption methods for your data and is compatible with all OpenPGP clients.

Using NouveauPG, you can send and receive secure messages to anyone using any program you can copy and paste from. NouveauPG easily integrates with existing e-mail, forum, and social media systems.

PLEASE NOTE: You cannot import private keys from another program and use them to decrypt messages using NouveauPG.

Check out a graphical tutorial at to see how easy NouveauPG is to use. (You can go through all the features in 15 minutes!)

Really Great

I’m new to this GPG stuff and was a bit over my head with some of other applications.
This worked perfectly to provide the functionality I needed, while allowing me to get a better understanding of what it was I was actually doing.
Other applications have little (if any) UI, so I took a chance with this and wound up loving it.

If you're interested in keeping some semblince of privacy while communicating online, intimidated by some of the other apps out there, but wanna start getting your feet wet—this was absolutely designed for you.


Good app with Good Support

I’m a PGP newbie but I still found the app fairly easy to use. When I needed support because of my own silly mistake I received a reply within two hours! And this was at 9PM when I emailed support!


Does Nothing

Once installed, I opened the app and wa sunable to do anything. Unable to create an identity, import any text from clipboard or file. So I read the quick start guide on the developer web site and tried again. When i tried to import certificate from file, program crashed. It doesnt do anything! Not worth $20. Not worth 20 cents.

Developer Response

The description of the app clearly states:

PLEASE NOTE: You cannot import private keys from another program and use them to decrypt messages using NouveauPG.

I'm sorry you missed this. The intended user is new to PGP. Feel free to contact me at for a refund. You didn't even do this before posting a review, or even thoroughly reading the description! I have no intention of selling software that doesn't fit a particular use case, there are a lot of people that like this software for what it is.
