Want to securely protect your files? You don't need to be a computer or security expert anymore! FlashCrypt provides extremely easy-to-use, but safe and secure folder protection solution.
Secure 256-bit AES encryption algorithm
FlashCrypt implements 256-bit AES (Rijndael) algorithm to encrypt your private files.
In June 2003, the US Government announced that AES may be used for classified information:
"The design and strength of all key lengths of the AES algorithm (i.e., 128, 192 and 256) are sufficient to protect classified information up to the SECRET level. TOP SECRET information will require use of either the 192 or 256 key lengths. The implementation of AES in products intended to protect national security systems and/or information must be reviewed and certified by NSA prior to their acquisition and use"
Windows Explorer integration
FlashCrypt works from Windows Explorer - just select a folder in Windows Explorer, press right mouse button, click Protect with FlashCrypt and set your password. It will create a locked folder - an encrypted container that looks like the original folder with FlashCrypt logo.
Double click on this container and input your password - your original folder will be restored.
You can easily copy your encrypted container to another disk, flash drive, CD-ROM or send it by email - your data will be still safely protected.
Optional data compression
FlashCrypt allows you to compress your files before they will be encrypted and added to the container. This can greatly save disk space, especially if you plan to copy your locked folder into a pen drive or send it over email.
Password recovery option
As security experts in files and folders protection, we are constantly receiving customer requests to recover lost or forgotten passwords. FlashCrypt has a special option that lets you save the encrypted password along with the protected data. FlashCrypt uses asymmetric cryptography (RSA algorithm) to encrypt your password, which guarantees that nobody but us (FSPro Labs FlashCrypt team) will be able to recover the password.
