Facebook Adds PGP Encryption to Email Messages

Facebook is adding the ability to upload an encryption key to your profile to prevent hackers from snooping on your notification emails. Notification emails from the company often include the content of the message; encryption would turn those messages to gibberish for sophisticated third parties. The ability to add OpenPGP public keys to profiles is rolling out now but may not be available to all users for several more days..
