Encrypt documents for free
Encrypto protects your documents with a bit of personality
Securely package and send files to other people, whether they use OS X or Windows
You can never be too safe with personal data, and in order to keep the docs you share a little more secure, MacPaw’s Encrypto (http://macpaw. com/encrypto) is a really easy to use Mac application for putting AES-256 encryption on your files for free.
AES-256 encryption is used by governments when sharing their data. The encryption’s security is based on the 256-bit length of its key (the equivalent benefits of having a longer password over a shorter one), and the number of hashes it uses (the number of times your data is changed into numerical information), which makes the code near impossible to crack.
One of the major benefits of sharing files using Encrypto is that the decryption password is never ‘sent’ – instead, a password hint is sent with the file that only the recipient would know the answer to. Plus, because Encrypto is available for both Mac and Windows, there’s no chance of an operating system stopping the recipient from opening your files, although it does mean another app for them to download.
