Important documents and files can be protected from unwanted access in several ways. The possibility exists to simply lock your desktop using a password, but rate of security is not maximum. On the other hand, specialized utilities such as S.S.E. File Encryptor offer an alternative so that you can rest assured that private documents remain confidential.
The application only needs a little space to run, both on your hard disk drive and your desktop. It features a compact main window where you find every tool you need to start protecting important files.
Starting the process is simply done by dragging the desired item in a sufficiently large enough box. In case you happen to miss it, an info text equipped with pointing arrows offers aid so you know from the start how it works.
Once this is done the process automatically starts and the output file is stored in the same folder as the original. It would have been useful to be able to set a default destination directory.
Before being able to fully use the main function you are required to set a security key. You can use a different one for every file you want to encrypt, but be careful not to forget them, because it is the only way to make reverse the process.
For enhanced protection, the password needs to be entered every time the application runs, with no possibility to save it. If you consider someone might hack into important documents, there are up to 7 encryption algorithms.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that S.S.E. File Encryptor is a simple solution to be sure that no file, regardless of type and importance, is accessible by anyone other than yourself. It’s fairly simple to use due to the clever and helpful design, doing a good job in a matter of moments.
