Hi Jaytown,
 
I\’m not aware of any good PGP apps for mobiles but I\’d say it\’s best done on a PC anyway. PCs tend to be far more secure than mobile phones, especially if you run Linux.
 
It\’s not a very straightforward process, to be honest. Start out with some Youtubes videos which explain the core concepts of public key encryption. It\’s a good thing to understand, as it\’s an integral part of cryptocurrency. This video is a good primer:

And so is this Khan Academy historical overview:

Once you have a better understanding of this cool tech, I\’d recommend using the open source Gnu Privacy Guard suite, available at:

Go through the documentation step by step and you should figure it out. Deep dot web has a good guide up:

I\’m happy to help if you have any more specific questions.
