Keep your secrets with PicoCrypt

USB flash drives are an easy, convenient way to carry files with you around the office or on the road.

Did you ever misplace one? What happens to your data then?

PicoCrypt is a tiny (13KB) application that will encrypt and decrypt text and binary files on any Windows system from Win95 on up. Using Blowfish encryption with a 128-bit key, PicoCrypt is small enough to load onto your flash drive along with your documents, so you never have to worry about your private data falling into the wrong hands.

Because PicoCrypt never writes your password to your system–hard drive, thumb drive, whatever–you keep security just that much tighter. When you encrypt a file, your original file is replaced with the newly-encrypted version, so you don’t have to worry about picking up after yourself. This also means that if you forget the password, you will never ever get your document back, so choose carefully!

PicoCrypt supports file selection via both drag-and-drop and browsing to a file on your system. PicoCrypt uses no installer and doesn’t touch the Registry, so you really can move it from system to system with no problem.

If portability and security are both important to you, you may want to give PicoCrypt a spin.

    First of all,
    Keep up the great work on this website. I don’t remember if i’ve commented in the blog before, but i visit the page daily and enjoy your reviews!

    PicoCrypt looks very nice; you might also check out a program called fSekrit that one of the members on our website wrote (also free). It shares many of the same motivations, but i think one difference is that fSekrit is only made for text files, and it combines the encrypter/decrypter with the actual note itself, so each file is a standalone encrypted note that you can read and edit, etc. perfect for storing stuff portably.
