  • Now go to Applications--Accessories--Password and Encryption keys.
     


        

  •  Click on the PGP key.

       

    •  Give your full name and e-mail id, not necessary to go in the advance tools if you just want to encrypt the files or folders.
           
      • After this, in the next prompt assign the password,this password will be used to open the lock of  encrypted files.
