    Hi Ash,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry to hear you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    If the text was encrypted with your public key, the passphrase is the passphrase / password (used synonymously) you set during key creation.

    As there is also the possibility a password was used by the message auther you would have to ask them about the password.

    Hope this helps,
