Quick Crypt 22.214.171.124
There are many utilities that can help with this task and Quick Crypt is one of them, while also providing with some additional security measures.
A portable solution for encrypting and decrypting files
The application does not need to be installed on your PC, so you can carry it on a removable drive, and rely on it to encrypt your files no matter which computer you are working on.
The interface is highly intuitive, as you need to start by selecting the file you want to protect, no matter its format and contents, then enter the password. You can also enter a hint, to help you remember the passcode you selected, yet make sure it cannot be guessed by other people as well.
Whenever you want to decrypt the package, simply enter the correct password and you are done.
Set an expiration date for the encrypted file
A handy function of Quick Crypt is that you can set the encrypted document to expire after a few days, thus strengthening its protection. In other words, if it has not been decrypted within the time range you specify, it cannot be decrypted at all.
You can also pack the protected file into a ZIP file, so that it is easier to distribute - a comment can be added as well, as well as a name of the file owner.
Erase private files so they can no longer be recovered
You can also rely on Quick Crypt to permanently delete confidential or sensitive files, while also making sure they cannot be retrieved not even using specialized software. Additionally, you can specify how many times you want your documents to be overwritten with random data.
All in all, Quick Crypt can come in handy to all those looking to effortlessly protect their data from prying eyes and encrypt files. The app can not only generate strong passwords, but it can also set expiration dates to encrypted files and securely erase private data.
