Virtru encrypts. Your email provider stores and sends
Separation of content and encryption gives you an inherent extra level of privacy. Virtru can NEVER see your content, while your email provider can never get the keys to the “locks” on your secure emails.Technical Details

As soon as they verify their identity, they’ll be able to read your messages and files. Because Virtru is a simple add-on, recipients can learn how to encrypt email for themselves as well.
