    Hey Miroslav,

    in which application are you trying to use GPGServices?

    1. Following is our 'How do I activate GPGServices?' Knowledge Base article


    Sometimes GPGServices will not show in the contextual menu after installing GPG Suite. Please check, that GPGServices are activated correctly:

    • open System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services
    • GPGServices needs to be activated in two locations
      1. The Files and Folders section GPGS_sys_pref_files.jpg
      2. The Text section please activate: GPGS_sys_pref_text.jpg

    With both sections enabled, retry to use GPGServices from the contextual menu. In case the issue persists, also try using the services menu from the menubar, e.g. TextEdit > Services > OpenPGP:


    2. Following is our ' GPGServices installed but not showing up in services menu' Knowledge Base article


    In rare occasions, GPGServices may not show in the contextual menu and the menubar, despite being correctly activated.

    1. Download and install the latest GPG Suite

    Should the issue persist:

    1. Download and install Onyx
    2. launch Onyx
    3. select "Automation" and make sure all three "Maintenance" options are ticked
    4. press "Execute"to start
    5. once the process is done, restart your system


    After the system restart, open TextEdit and see if GPGServices shows in the contextual menu.

    Does that bring back GPGServices?

    All the best,
