Zero Footprint Crypt

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This feature-filled freeware application encrypts, decrypts, and displays many common file types, but the default deletion of unencrypted originals may cause some user woes. Zero Footprint Crypt's customizable tree-style interface gives users a welcome choice between two appearances and toolbars. The program offers six encryption algorithms for viewing common unencrypted image files. Most novice users will find all options of this program easy to use. Advanced users will quickly see the program has enough options and extra features to make this a daily-use utility. Unlike many similar utilities, encrypting a file with Zero Footprint Crypt deletes the original, but this feature is easily turned off in the program's option interface. This utility also can create encrypted files that are self-decrypting for those without the program. It can easily serve as a replacement file explorer. Most image and sound files are easily opened in the media-viewer window. The wipe feature merely deletes the file byte by byte and isn't up to Department of Defense security standards. This freeware surpasses many common and costly file-encryption utilities and would be a welcome addition to the privacy tools for any level of user.
