You can put the file inside a ZIP file, and encrypt the file.

Make sure you use AES 256 as encryption algorithm, and use a strong password.

 

Be aware that the filename will not be encrypted.

PeaZip is a nice application that may be suitable for your needs!


Have you tried turning it off and back on? :P
