Why? Supposedly, encrypted files and documents are more secure and safe from hackers and thieves (government or individual). Mac, iPhone, and iPad users have many ways to choose to encrypt what you write. Here’s one that’s easy and affordable.
Encrypt And Edit
Think of CryptoEdit as a unique mini-word processor with encryption built in. When you save what you’re writing, it’s encrypted.
That means a hacker or thief isn’t likely to know what you wrote without having the CryptoEdit app and the password you used to create the document.
That’s about as simple as it gets. You write and encryption happens automatically as you save. Each document you write is password protected. No password, no document.
That also means you cannot create a document that others can read because CryptoEdit locks down the file with AES-256 bit encryption.
CryptoEdit itself is also how you write. You can import files using text, RTF, or RTF plus images, and files can be exported the same way. Also built-in are basic editing functions.
Each document requires a password but that can be changed at any time. Documents you’ve saved are encrypted but can be edited with the password. CrytpoEdit has basic word processing tools so text can be formatted with different styles, fonts, and rulers, and it includes spell checking, and auto save.
If you’re a bit paranoid about what you write then CryptoEdit is a good and rather inexpensive way to automate the encryption procecss.
