    Decrypting PGP on a website


    Hello,

    I recently came across the link below with the contact page information encrypted in PGP (I think) I just got wondering, how would I decrypt it?

    That's the public key that you would use to encrypt data you wanted to send to him securely that could be only read by him using his own private key. It is not in itself any encrypted message.
