Can I email PDF or is it unsafe?

by /u/nooBeezy · 1 votes · 2 weeks ago

Just purchased a tech savy PDF about alot of technology, this is a stupid question but can I email it to myself on clear net to open it there instead of booting up Tails everytime. Theres information about exploits etc in it thats why I wanted to ask here first

i would pgp it send it to a burner phone from a new email. transfer it with a cable to pc.

But really I would just boot tails everytime.

Depending on how shady the source is, you might also want to clean-up the pdf with a tool like dangerzone.

Can I use dangerzone on Tails?

why not just save it on an encrypted flash drive?

There are plenty of tools on GitHub to check if the PDF is safe to use
