Encrypting with password and signing at the same time results in error encrypt/sign failed (wrong passphrase) code = 11


  1. right-click file > Services > OpenPGP: Encrypt File
  2. enter password, enter confirm password
  3. tick option to Sign in Your Key: section
  4. click Encrypt button


Encrypt/sign failed!
Encrypt/sign failed! (Wrong passphrase)
Code = 11


  • File should be encrypted
  • Signature file should be created

Could it be that somehow gpg is mixing up the password required for signing and the file encryption password?
