    As someone else mentioned, Cryptomator is a great option for this, and probably easier. Encrypt Pad can work also. These solutions work differently. Cryptomator gives you an encrypted drive where you can store many files, whereas Encrypt Pad will just encrypt a bunch of text. You can then safely save the encrypted file anywhere, such as your email.
