Nowadays, security is of utmost importance, especially for your important personal files. FilerFrog’s powerful file encryption uses a strong RC4 stream cipher encryption, which is used in popular protocols such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and WEP (to secure wireless networks), combined with a private password of up to 256 characters.
"Encrypt" Usage: Just select one or more files, right-click and choose Encrypt from the Security submenu, and enter a password. You would have the choice whether to keep or delete the original file.
The encrypted file is created in the same folder as the original, and with the same name as the original (including extension), plus a ".ffenc" extension, so you can see the original file's full name at a glance. A special FilerFrog icon shows you that the file has been encrypted.
"Decrypt" Usage: Decrypting files could not be easier. To decrypt and open a single file, just double click on it. (To decrypt multiple files that were encrypted using the same password, select them, right click and choose Decrypt from the Security submenu). Enter the correct password, and the original files will be decrypted.
