How can I install GPG tools without giving the installer my root password? I always hesitate giving apps my root password.

I'm willing to run sudo commands on the Terminal manually. Then at least I know what sudo is being used for.

    I was wondering the same thing.

    Why isn't anyone replying to this? Very suspicious.

    currently when you download and install GPG Suite from, you have to enter your password.
    We have a pending feature request to allow installations without requiring root access.
