Signing tags

You can sign tags locally using GPG or S/MIME.

Note: GitHub Desktop only supports commit signing if your Git client is configured to sign commits by default.

  1. To sign a tag, add -s to your git tag command.
    $ git tag -s MYTAG
    # Creates a signed tag
  2. Verify your signed tag by running git tag -v [tag-name].
    $ git tag -v MYTAG
    # Verifies the signed tag
