I received a Protected Trust message

Did you receive a message from Protected Trust? Are you wondering what it is?

Send It Secure by Protected Trust (formerly Protected Trust Email Encryption) is an email encryption service that many companies use to secure their data. Your message might be from your doctor, dentist, lawyer, or financial planner. It could be from your friend who wants to add an extra layer of security to your communication. Whoever the sender is, they are most likely just keeping your data secure by using Send It Secure.

How can you be sure who the message is from? Start by looking at the from address. Do you recognize the company domain name or email address? Are you expecting a message from them? 

If you are still unsure about opening the message, try contacting the sender’s office and confirm that they have sent you a message using Send It Secure.
