A novice who finally is comfortable using Veracrypt. Have seen other encryption apps out there and was looking for opinions, pros and cons,etc.

 

Have container on my PC's and on traveling flash drive. Mainly personal use. Windows 10 Home.

 

A friend recommended Kryptel but I'm not familiar with it.

But many others have been mentioned (see link below for 2-page article). As a novice, it is difficult to determine which are the better apps.

 

Anyone familiar with the Invisible Secrets app?

Hi,

 

for personal use I'd say VeraCrypt is your best choice of the lot, it's free and open source.  :wink:

I would stick with VeraCrypt. It's open source and has been audited.
