Lockmagic doesn't use passwords to encrypt content. Instead users specify a set of recipient identities
to grant access to the encrypted content. The identity is typically the recipient email address since this information is already known
and shared with other people.
This makes it very easy to share encrypted content without any risk of forgetting passwords. The sender simply specifies the other people idenities when encrypting content. There is nothing extra the sender needs to do when composing a secure message. The list of authorized recipients is taken from the TO, CC and BCC fields.
Each recipient must sign in to Lockmagic using the same identity granted by the sender. Recipients can sign in to Lockmagic by registering their email address or use google authentication without registeration. Only after the recipient identity has been verified and authorized to access the secure content, is the secure content decrypted.
