Do you know you can save important documents on your laptop, without manually setting a password to lock it, and others will not be able to access these documents? TrueCrypt does an amazing job at ensuring this.

Why do you need TrueCrypt?

TrueCrypt is an application that can help you to create and encrypt drives in real-time. Meaning that your data can be encrypted automatically or decrypted before they are uploaded to the application or saved to a designated folder.

With TrueCrypt, any data that is stored on an encrypted folder cannot be deciphered without the right password or encryption key. Apart from the fact that its volume can’t be accessed or understood, you offered other features on TrueCrypt. You can create new volumes, view volume properties, you can even select a file from your computer’s storage and select a different device. All these options are intuitively displayed on the basic-looking interface. 

You can use this application, to encrypt your entire file system, including; file names, folder names, file contents, and free space. TrueCrypt also allows you to encrypt an entire partition or storage device, such as; USB drives or hard drives. 

Key Features of TrueCrypt:

  • Create virtual encrypted disks within files;
  • Encrypt partitions or portable storage device (USB flash drive & hard drive);
  • Automatic encryptions;
  • Supports two levels of advanced password protection, Hidden Volume/Hidden Operating System and Volumes are displayed as random data;
  • Supports Encryption Algorithms: AES-256, Serpent, and Twofish;
  • XTS Mode of operation.


In conclusion, using TrueCrypt is one of the safest ways to secure your personal data from third-parties who aren’t privy to the right password or encryption key. Volumes come across as a series of scattered numbers until a volume is decrypted. While it may seem really reliable to use TrueCrypt, it has a downside to it. Users are warned to only use this application for converted data encrypted by TrueCrypt. Due to unfixed bugs, this application is not very secured for other file formats.
