Cryptor 1.60

Keeping files secure and out of the way of prying eyes is a concern for everyone, but it is particularly true if you happen to share your computer with others. File encryption programs offer a potential solution but they have a tendency to be somewhat over the top for the average user and often have hefty price tags attached to them.

This is where Cryptor is different. This is a free encryption tool which makes it possible to encrypt and password protect files and folders in an instant. Files can be simply dragged and dropped onto the program interface and after clicking the padlock icon and supplying a password, the selection is encrypted to prevent unauthorised access.

There are a range of encryption options available up t 256-bit for complete peace of mind.
Cryptor can be configured to automatically delete the original files immediately after encryption has taken place to ensure that there are no unsecured copies left on your hard drive.

For ease of use, Cryptor can be set up to always use the same password which helps to speed up the process of encrypting files, but for added security it is a better idea to use unique passwords each time. There is also a password assistant on hand to help to you to choose a password that is both strong and memorable.
