Chances are, right now you have something on your computer that you would rather other people not see. Financial information, a diary, photographic evidence of a night of debauchery--you know what we're talking about. Fortunately for you, SafeHouse Explorer USB Flash Drive Encryption makes it easy to keep your private stuff private, on a flash drive or on your computer.

In our adventures as software reviewers, we see a lot of amateurish software, so it was a breath of fresh air when we opened SafeHouse Explorer and found a well-designed and well-explained program. The application walks first-time users through the process of creating a secure volume, setting a password, and moving sensitive files there. The program looks very much like Windows Explorer, and using it is much like moving files in and out of a regular folder; the main difference is that the files are protected by passwords and, more importantly, 256-bit encryption. Users can create as many SafeHouse Explorer volumes as they like of whatever size they like, and we especially like that volumes can be created on any drive--including USB flash drives--without a separate installation of the software. SafeHouse Explorer's online Help file is well-written and thorough, and the publisher also provides an informative video tutorial. We were impressed with both the looks and functions of SafeHouse Explorer, and we highly recommend it.

SafeHouse Explorer USB Flash Drive Encryption is free. The program installs politely but leaves a folder and desktop icon behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
