AES Crypt – Advanced File Encryption for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Python, PHP, and Java

AES Crypt is a FREE (open source) file encryption solution that is available on many OS platforms. On a Windows-based computer, simply install and when you need to encrypt or decrypt a file, right mouse click on the file and select AES Encrypt or AES Decrypt. I also found that after you encrypt a file, you can also easily decrypt the file by clicking on the file and the password window will be invoked. AES Crypt is a great option when you want to store sensitive files in the cloud.

If interested in using this software on your Android devices, visit the Google Play store on your device and perform a search for AES Crypt and you will find several Android apps that is compatible with this software.

VeraCrypt – FREE Open Source Encryption Software

VeraCrypt is FREE open-source disk encryption software that is used by those who have a need to lock down data from prying eyes. There are many options to using Veracrypt from simply creating a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounting it as a real disk (or drive) TO encrypting an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive. If you are looking for encryption software, at no cost, that is as good or better than commerical encryption software, this is it…

VeraCrypt never saves any decrypted data to a disk – it only stores the data temporarily in RAM (memory). Even when the volume is mounted, data stored in the volume is still encrypted. When you restart Windows or turn off your computer, the volume will be dismounted and files stored in it will be inaccessible (and encrypted). Even when power supply is suddenly interrupted (without proper system shut down), files stored in the volume are inaccessible (and encrypted).

Veracrypt is currently available on the following platforms: Windows, Mac OSX, Linus AND third party support on Android and iOS. It can also be downloaded and run as a portable app…

FastCopy is a file copy and synchronization tool with a variety of available extras. It uses different strategies (multi-threading, buffering) to help ensure maximum device throughput, as well as optional verification to make sure data is transferred correctly. It does not use the system cache, so other processes do not get bogged down during the copy process and a speed setting is also available, including pause. It supports Unix-style include/exclude wildcards filters.

Glary Utilities offers numerous powerful and easy-to-use system tools and utilities to fix, speed up, maintain and protect your PC. It allows you to clean common system junk files, as well as invalid registry entries and Internet traces. You can manage and delete browser add-ons, analyze disk space usage and find duplicate files.

Want to compress a bunch of documents into a single encrypted file for archiving?

If so, take a look at BCArchive… This FREE program is specifically designed to compress a group of files/folders to a single encrypted file that is password protected.  I like the idea that, after installing, you can activate BCArchive from the Explorer file menu, which comes in real handy when you need to protect and archive files on the fly. Always keep in mind that when you password protect the file archive, to remember the password.

BCArchive is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10 (32-Bit/64-Bit)…

To give you an idea how good this program is, here is a list of the options:

  • Create Compressed and Encrypted Archive File Protected by Password
  • Create Compressed and Encrypted Archive File by Using the Public Key of Another User
  • Add Several Passwords to an Existing Archive File
  • Apply more than one Public Key to an Archive File Enabling a Number of Users to Decrypt the Archive
  • Generate New or Use Existing Secret/Public Key Pairs in PKCS-12/X.509 Format
  • Compress and Encrypt Data to a Self-extracted Executable Program
  • Synchronize, Import, Export Functions
  • Includes BCTextEncoder Utility

Only Encryption Program You Will Ever Need (very easy to use)

There are occasions where we need to safeguard a file or a folder that contains sensitive information. This is especially true if you are storing the files online. The program that I use on a regular basis to accomplish this is EncryptOnClick (by 2BrightSparks). EncryptOnClick meets four of my conditions when it comes to encryption software:

  1. It is not here today and gone tomorrow. I have been using this program going on 5 years (or more) and it continues to be improved and up-to-date with changes in the operating system;
  2. It is very easy to use. Many encryption programs can be difficult to understand and navigate. EncryptOnClick is not one of them;
  3. It can be made portable to carry around on my flashdrive (or stored online for quick download). This is important since I use EncryptOnClick as my main encryption program (at home and at work);
  4. It is a very secure method of encryption (256-bit AES encryption) that is password protected. The encryption file result is also compressed to make the file smaller.

Bet You Never Saw This Before – I have been looking around for a bluetooth capable mouse for my Android tablet and came across a mouse with a bluetooth speaker built into it. It is called the Aerb® Wireless Bluetooth Speaking Mouse . I haven’t decided whether to splurge for this (just to have something different); but, I have never seen anything like it.  A mouse with a speaker built into it is a really neat concept; especially, for a tablet or smartphone.
