Dual Purpose

Dual Purpose: You can use Switch⇄Crypt either to keep your own data encrypted, or - alternatively - you can use Switch⇄Crypt to exchange encrypted data with another person via untrusted email or via an untrusted storage. Consider that you can use Switch⇄Crypt only for one of these two purposes - but not for both of them.
