If you're using gpg for this, you can further reduce the risk of user error by setting the for-your-eyes-only flag in the encrypted file. --for-your-eyes-only --no-for-your-eyes-only Set the `for your eyes only' flag in the message. This causes GnuPG to refuse to save the file unless the --output option is given, and PGP to use a "secure viewer" with a claimed Tempest- resistant font to display the message. This option overrides --set-filename. --no-for-your-eyes-only disables this option.
