Crypt4Free 5.64

An intuitive and simple-to-use application that allows users to encrypt information by setting up passwords and choosing the algorithm (Blowfish or DESX)
Crypt4Free is a straightforward application designed to help you encrypt data by setting up passwords. It comes in handy for all users who need to keep their documents private from unauthorized viewing in an easy and efficient way.

It boasts a clean and intuitive GUI that offers quick access to the files and folders stored in the computer. This way, you can easily select the ones to encrypt.

The encryption operation can be carried out by specifying the passwords, adding riddles, picking the algorithm (Blowfish or DESX), and selecting the saving directory. Plus, the original files can be deleted after encrypting them.

Other important features worth mentioning allow you to create ZIP archives or decompress the archived files, as well as remove sensitive data from the computer in a secured way.

Furthermore, you can make the program keep the date stamp for the encrypted files, show system and hidden items, sort files by extension, mark encrypted files as hidden, and create a list with file formats to be excluded from the compression process.

Crypt4Free gives users the possibility to encrypt the information included in the application, log all events to a plain text file, as well as play sound notifications at the end of a task.

Additionally, the tool enables users to delete the selected files or folders, view file size information, create new folders, copy or move the selected items, and send email messages via your default client.

All things considered, Crypt4Free offers an intuitive working environment and useful features for helping you encrypt or decrypt files with ease.

Although it cannot be considered the most powerful tool on the market because it doesn’t come packed with a wide range of algorithms dedicated to encrypting and deleting files, it remains light on the system resources and can be mastered by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
