GPG signing with Git and Github Desktop

GPG signing – git github-desktop

Here is a short guide that will help you setup your environment to create signed commits or signed tags with Git locally. This has been extensively tested on Windows with Git and the Github Desktop application: I use it every day for my professional development projects.

I you face any issue, feel free to leave a comment below.


  1. Sign commits or tags
  2. Key passphrase
  3. Disable signatures
  4. Renew a GPG key
