File Encryption Apps

Your personal data is just that: Personal. And that personal data should be able to withstand any attempts to be accessed by brute force attacks. The first step to ensuring this is to make sure it is properly encrypted. Software such as VeraCrypt is designed to protect the data on your hard drive so that, in the event that an attacker or thief gains access to your personal belongings, they are unable to see any of the photos or documents that are on your computer.
