Invisible Secrets is a full-service tool that not only offers file encryption and decryption, but also shreds files and allows you to hide them in other files. Though the program worked well for us, we were a little put off by the files it left behind after we uninstalled it.
The program has a very user-friendly interface. Novice users will especially like the wizard-like approach it takes to walk you through each feature when selected. Encrypting a file was a piece of cake. We added the file, entered a password, chose an algorithm method, and the file was instantly encrypted. When we clicked on the encrypted file, we were asked to enter our password, and the file was successfully decrypted. Hiding an encrypted file was as easy selecting the file and carrier file, and entering our password. The Internet history cleaning was a little slow moving, but its comprehensive results made up for the speed.
We did come across one trial restriction that only allows for five password characters, but it didn't affect the program's performance. Also, 15 days is a little brief for a trial. We were a little disappointed to find that even after uninstalling the program, it left several files on our PC. We had to manually remove them. If you don't mind the extra files, the program itself is exceptional for file privacy.

Version: Invisible Secrets 4 4.3
Very intuitive, easy to use interface, does a very good job encrypting files. I like also the features that encrypts messages and then attach them to my email as a zip file. I payed $40 and I am using it 1 year now, very happy and satisfied about the choice I've made.
