    Cryptomator vs TrueCrypt opinions
    Most users think Cryptomator is a great alternative to TrueCrypt.
    JohnFastman

    Truecrypt is no more. Try the more updated and secure VeraCrypt. Both of those are for making an encrypted container into which files are placed. Cryptomator is different: it encrypts file-by-file (makes an encrypted version of each file). This enables you to sync/backup encrypted versions of your files to the cloud, which the TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt approach doesn't. Cryptomator thus fulfills a different need than does TC/VC.

    There is more to say about thos software. But I want to mention one thing: Nowadays almost every one has file in the cloud they want to acces any time and any place with any device. With Cryptomator you can do this even with encrypted files. That is very practical if you want to have private documents like for instance your passport accessible everywhere.

    AES Crypt vs TrueCrypt opinions
    This alternative is disputed. AES Crypt is still a legitimate alternative to TrueCrypt, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
    Guest

    AES Crypt is just an encryption program for a single file not for container or partitions like TrueCrypt.
