On occasion you may want to encrypt files to move them between computers, sites or for storing personal documents etc...

One of the most user friendly tools we've found is Encrypto By MacPaw: 


Downloads are available for Windows and Mac and its a very simple program to drag-and-drop a file onto enter a password and its encrypted, or double click the file you want unencrypted and enter the password.

Please be aware:

  • There isn't an I've forgotten the password option. 
  • If you are sharing a file with someone else then do not send the password via the same method as the file. Avoid SMS (text messages) or voice calls as these can be easily intercepted.
  • This isn't a sensible corporate solution so please use it sparingly in school.
