"Password protect your files"


More and more people try to protect their files from hackers and unauthorized users, but one of the best ways to guard them is use a software that will password-protect them. Kruptos 2 Professional uses 256-bit encryption to protect your files so that only you can access them. If for some reason you want to share confidential files to someone else, you can do so by sending an encrypted version of those files that can be unlocked in a computer that doesn’t have Kruptos 2 installed. This and many other features are included in this easy to use software.


Just run the setup file and follow the instructions to install the program. There are only a couple of steps and no advanced settings at any of them. The overall procedure won’t take more than a minute. No malicious (or any additional software for that matter) is contained in the setup package.

Supported operating systems are Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 (32 and 64-bit editions compatible).


Kruptos 2 has a ribbon interface with 3 tabs: Home, Selection and View. The first tab has the most buttons and shares some with the second tab. From the third tab you can remove the explorer pane that is located on the left side of the screen and view only the current file list. At the bottom is the status bar, where you can see the number of files in the file list and their total size.

Encrypting files/folders is not hard; just add them to the list and click “Encrypt”. A window will pop-up and ask you to type the password you want to encrypt them with. You can also lock files/folders by right-clicking on them and selecting the “Kruptos 2 Professional” item.


The software uses 256-bit encryption algorithm, a pretty tight and secure way to protect your files. It’s important to use strong protection techniques like this to protect valuable data and not fall for outdated and insecure methods.

You can use projects, which are basically sets of files encrypted with the same password. So for example, in one of your projects you can add your pictures and encrypt them using a password, whilst in another project add your video files and encrypt them using another password. When typing a password you can see how strong it is from the bar below the text box, in order to make it longer and more complicated if it’s weak. You can decrypt them individually if you want by using the project’s password.

If it’s crucial to send a file to someone in a secure way, you can create a self-extracting version of it, which is locked and requires a password to see its contents.

But protection is not all about encryption. Sometimes, deleting files and making sure they’re not recovered is the best way to go. That’s why Kruptos 2 has a built-in shredder tool that can erase your files without leaving a single trace of them in your drive.


No cons here. The software is stable and bug-free.


One of the best file and data encryption software is Folder Lock (paid). The price you’ll pay for this program is too insignificant for the security you’ll get in return, as it has tons of features to protect everything in your computer; from files to emails and USB flash disks. Another decent alternative is Axcrypt (free).


Although there are other alternatives with more features in the market, Kruptos 2 is not a program to overlook. With it no one will be able to touch your stuff again when you’re away.
