Virtru makes email encryption easy. Set it up in just a minute using your existing email address and just flip a switch for any message you want to protect. Your message and any file attachments, including pictures, can only be decrypted by people you authorize.
• Client-side encryption. Messages are encrypted before they leave your phone and remain secure no matter where they travel.
• You authorize who has access to your content. No one else can decrypt (not even your mail provider).
• Supports email messages and file attachments, including pictures.
Virtru Basic encryption is completely free and not limited in any way. Send and receive as many messages as you want.
If you want even more control over your content or need to use Virtru for business emails or compliance, upgrade to Virtru Pro to:
• Revoke access to messages and attachments even after they've been opened.
• Set expiration dates for your messages.
• See and control where your messages are forwarded.
• Set DLP rules to detect and automatically encrypt certain sensitive content.
• View real-time read receipts to see when recipients have accessed your encrypted messages.
• Helps enable HIPAA, FERPA, CFPB, and CJIS compliance.
Virtru is easy for your recipients too -- they don't even need to install anything to read and reply to your messages. And if they want to send their own secure messages, they can download our free app or plug-in.
With Virtru, you don’t need a separate account — use it with Gmail or any other email provider. You can send secure messages to anyone anywhere, regardless of their email provider or what software they use to read their email. Virtru also works on your desktop with free plug-ins for Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Outlook.
Virtru is secure (256-bit encryption) and completely private (only you and your intended receives can access your content). Virtru’s basic service is completely free.
Just install the app and you’ll be sharing with confidence in less than a minute.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using this app for a couple of years now. I don’t use it regularly, but I do use it. I’ve never had any issues up until a month or so ago, when I sent 2 emails, both on my iPhone, at different times and on different weeks. The emails just vanished. The recipient never got it, it was not in my sent folder, draft folder or anywhere. Which was concerning and quite a pain. Other than these recent issues it has been great. I would have given it 5 stars if it weren’t for the recent issues. Still very good app!
add support for multiple email addresses
I use Virtru both for work and personal email, but this client only supports one address at a time. If I get an encrypted message to my personal account, I have to go through the cumbersome process of opening it in the web reader, or otherwise remove my work email from the app so I can use it with my personal account. Please join the 21st century and add support for multiple email addresses/accounts in the Virtru iOS client.
Thank you for the feedback! We actually started supporting multiple accounts a while ago in version 2.5.0. I've let our product team know that this wasn't clear enough and they've agreed to make it more apparent in the next release. For now, click the hamburger menu button in the top left -> swipe right to go to the accounts screen -> click the plus icon in the top right.
Loved Virtru before, can’t stand this version!!!
This version is absolutely horrible, which is so sad, when they had a great working system before!
Gmail is impossible and just so ugly/clunky on my phone, I’m deleting the app, and annoyingly using my laptop to send virtru protected emails. I hate not having this option on the go!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
