CNET Editors' review
This fast little freeware utility encrypts and decrypts your files with a minimum of fuss. Chaos Mash doesn't require installation. Just run the executable and a compact window opens with just a few fields.
Unlike some programs that have so many options it's hard to know where to begin, Chaos Mash keeps options simple. There are fields for Input File and Output File, and we liked that you could easily name your encrypted and decrypted files and select their directories. By default, the encrypted or decrypted items are placed in the same directory as the source file. The interface holds only a few more easily set options: set a key for encryption, enter one for decryption, and choose your encryption mode. You can also set the check box if you want a file to be opened immediately after decrypting it.
Chaos Mash doesn't support drag-and-drop functionality or handle more than one file at a time, but it gets the job done quickly and easily. If you just need the occasional file encrypted, Chaos Mash can handle the job with ease.
Encrypt any sort of file on your computer. If you need it to be confidential simply, mash it. Chaos Mash will output any file of your choosing into encrypted data. Chaos Mash does not require installation; simply copy it to the hard drive to run. Choose from 45 types of encryption methods. Use these methods with keys you create to keep your data safe.
What's new in this version: Version 3.0.001 adds password mask and three encryption methods with 15 types for each method.
