encryption-on-demand: for occasional private communication.

By gideon ·
Most of us don't install, don't bother, don't like the tedium of encryption packages, with all that key management that comes with it. And for good reason, 99% of our email stuff is innocuous. No big secrets there. But on occasion we need to pass along a password, an account number, a romantic confession perhaps, and other confidential matters. This need has been recently addressed by the site that offers ad-hoc, use-and-discard encryption solution, and it's free. They also claim deniability, which means the writer can claim his encrypted message is other than what it really is. Is this a useful solution for the occasional need for private communication? Would anyone try it, and write a report?
