I use a different PGP software but i want to migrate to GPGSuite. Several people have my public key, and changing keys is not an option. Is it possible to import my keys that were generated on another software to GPGSuite?

    Hey Bruno,

    welcome to the GPGTools community support platform.

    Sure, that should not be a problem at all.

    This KB-article explains how to backup 1. a single key 2. all your keys or 3. your entire .gnupg folder.

    Let me know if you have more questions or need further assistance after going through that KB.

    Best, steve
