Anybody still using it? Very strange the way they just closed down. I'm still using it, no issues so far for me. Just wondering if anybody else is still using it.

I'm still using it and I have no issues with it so far as well. If you want, you can move to VeraCrypt, which is based on TrueCrupt 7.1a (the last known secure version).

VeraCrypt can mount TrueCrypt volumes as well.

What Aura said...  :wink:

 

I still prefer TrueCrypt, I see the strange "close down" and the fact that government agencies force people to give up their passwords (keyfiles) as proof that it is pretty secure!

 

You can read about TrueCrypt (and download it) here

The webpage's BS recommendation to use Bitlocker and crying over dropped XP support seems almost comical , and would seem to smack of a govt strong-arm 'psy-op', IMO.....

 

Claim TrueCrypt is weak in the hopes adversaries would stop using it?

 

The paranoid can always FDE their disks, use a VM with a LUKS encryption scheme, use truecrypt containers within, containing GPG encrypted files within, all the while hidden inside of JPEG images... :)

Why not switch over to Veracrypt? Any downsides?

None that I have seen. Veracrypt fixes some issues found in the audit.
