Easy PGP guide for Windows

General information

Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is an encryption program that provides cryptographic privacy and authentication for data communication. PGP is often used for signing, encrypting, and decrypting texts, e-mails and files and to increase the security of email communications.

A typical darknet user will use PGP to:

Encrypt messages

  • To encrypt the shipping address and other sensitive information so only the vendor can read it.

Decrypt messages

  • Vendors will encrypt sensitive shipping information for you (e.g. tracking codes).
  • Decrypting a message is sometimes required to login to a market.

Learning how to use PGP is very important. You don’t ever want your personal details to fall into the hands of law enforcement. Please carefully read through all sections in this chapter.


What if I sent a message without PGP?

Did you sent a message that contained sensitive data (e.g. your address) without encrypting it with PGP by yourself?

Then it is best to delete your market account and start a new one. And no, this is not overkill. When the Silk Road servers were seized, a lot of messages were not PGP encrypted and contained addresses in plaintext. In the following years the FBI gave those data to other law enforcement agencies around the world and they busted buyers that sent their addresses unencrypted. So if you would continue to order with that account, the evidence against you would just stack up even more.

Please make the cut now and create a new market account with which you will always PGP encrypt your address by yourself.

Can I use the market’s built in encryption?

No. The server processes the message in plain text, if the market is compromised attackers will be able to see the contents. Always encrypt sensitive information yourself.

Do I need to encrypt all messages?

You only need to encrypt messages containing sensitive information such as packaging details (which should only ever be discussed between a vendor and a buyer) or addresses. Saying “Thanks!” doesn’t need encryption.

Can I decrypt a PGP message I sent?

No, only the user whose public key you used to encrypt the message can decrypt it. However if you select the public keys of the users you want to send the message to and your own public key, then you will be able to decrypt the encrypted message. You will learn later how to do that.

Creating a PGP key pair

Enter DarkNetOnes PGP Tool.

On the main page fill up all the info.

** important – do not use your real name or real email, you do not need a working email in order to create a PGP key.

Please notice the recommended parameters for algorithm, key size, expiry duration and passphrase (must be min of 5 letters).

After you finished filling up the info, press on the Generate keys button, the key creation can take a few minutes.

Once finished you will get 2 parts, your public key (for sharing) and private key (never share that part), make sure to save the 2 keys on a safe place.

After you saved the 2 keys, you can then upload the public key to any darknet market.

Encrypt Your Address Using PGP

The main purpose of PGP is encrypting your address to send a vendor for buying drugs on a darknet market, go to the Encrypt (+Sign) tab on PGP Tool.

On the Receiver’s Public Key area paste the vendor you want to encrypt the message of, and on the Your Message in Plain Text area write your message (usually your address), after finishing press Encrypt PGP message button.

Now you can simply copy the encrypted message from the Encrypted PGP Message tab and send to the vendor!

Decrypt Messages using PGP

Decrypting encrypted messages is simple with DarkNetOnes PGPtool.

Go to the Decrypt (+Verify) tab on PGPtool.

Paste your private key to the Receiver’s Private Key (For decryption purpose) tab and the encrypted message you with to decrypt to the Encrypted PGP Message tab, then press the Decrypt Message in Plain Text button and your message will be decrypted.


Using PGP is easy and simple, it takes around 10 min of trying to manage to decrypt and encrypt using PGPTool. Now you can use any market (such as WhiteHouse Market) that require mandatory PGP usage!

  1. suppose i actually figure out how to use pgp ,which i haven’t for over a year now then monero plus how it all works with the market It really is giving me a migraine every day. I really would like to purchase getting more confused daily

    1. It does not take long to figure out how to use PGP or Monero, however you always have an option to use a market that does not force you to use PGP or Monero (every darknet market other than White House Market).

  2. If I didn’t save my PGP on a notepad when I made an account last night and it’s not verifying when I log in. Does it not give you the same PGP from when you create your account? If not I’m kinda screwed lol

  3. hy i m looking for 2FA autentification on vice city market, i have create my pgp public and private key with your pgptool , but now, i can login to vc market , because i dont know how i need to script on the case “verify ” i dont understant how i can find the 2FA code , i have test pasphrase , decrypt , veryf … everyting … i m realy destitute
    did you have some toto for 2FA autentification on vice city market? new girl on te darknet , i need to learn


    1. 2FA you make it, Two Factor Authentication, Like when you purchase coin it will send a text asking for the number (or code) you just got texted or emailed (always use protonmail for email it is secure and it encrypts messages) Or if/when your bank wants to verify you will sometimes use 2FA Not sure how you are trying to enter this on DN market/site. A site I am on I still have to fill it out (2Fa). I will let you know how it goes.
