Hey there,

Go into your repository settings and click on the 'security' tab. From there you can enable GPG if you've got it set correctly in your SourceTree settings. There's a built-in help document if you go to Help > SourceTree Help or click on the '?' button on the 'Security' tab.


Thanks for your mention Kieran !

I'm not seeing a 'Security' tab. I'm using SourceTree in Windows 8.1.

Same here. Can't find any Security tab anywhere in SourceTree 1.6.12.

Thank you, it 's working on SourceTree 2.3.1 under macOS 10.11.6.

Thank you for your share, and I find this Knowledge Base.
