Compriva Private Email Installation

System Requirements

You can install Compriva Private Email on any PC or tablet running Windows 7 through 10. As well, you will need an S/MIME supporting email client or S/MIME viewer running on your PC or tablet. Our installer and web features work best with Internet Explorer, Edge and Chrome browsers.

Installing Compriva Private Email

After completing the registration process, you will receive a confirmation email containing a special link to the Compriva Private Email installer for your registration. Click the link, download and run the installer. Follow the simple instructions provided by the installer. You will need your registration PIN code in order to complete the installation.

If you are using Outlook (Office 365) or Windows Live Mail as your email client, please ensure that the address you wish to use for Compriva Private Email is set up to send and receive email in that client so that our installer can correctly configure it.

On completion, you will be prompted to back up your Compriva digital certificates using the Compriva Certificate Backup Utility. We strongly encourage you to back up your certificates. If you lose certificates (e.g. due to hardware failure) and do not have a backup, you will no longer be able to read any messages that were previously encrypted with those lost certificates. Backing up your certificates also facilitates transferring your certificates for full functionality on other PCs and devices:

After successful installation, please refer to Getting Started with Compriva Private Email for complete product usage instructions.
