file encryption program FinalCrypt a Java based file encryption program that offers a more secure approach to data encryption than traditional encryption software. Instead of using a password or small cipher, FinalCrypt uses a much larger cipher file (e.g. a unique personal photo or video that only you have access to) to toggle the bits in your data file with the unique bit patterns in your cipher file. For a supercomputer to crack the encryption it would have to be able to randomly recreate an exact duplicate of your personal photo or video, which is realistically impossible. You can use any type of file as the cipher file but using a unique photo or video is a more practical approach because you will need to remember which file you used in order to decrypt the data. The FinalCrypt interface is very basic, you select the file you want to encrypt on the left side and choose the cipher file on the right. Click the "Encrypt" button and your file will be encrypted with a .bit extension. The original file is deleted in the process. Copyright

Not fully portable 1 stars by ikniqpalagaq765 Dec 14, 2019 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I tried the latest portable version (6.11) of FinalCrypt and found that it still created a .finalcrypt directory in my Users subdirectory of the C: drive. I would have thought by now (after dozens of new releases) that de Jong would place the .finalcrypt folder and its contents in the root directory of FinalCrypt. show Review details
Updates too often. 2 stars by Scientific_Frontline Apr 02, 2019 (Read all my 25 reviews)
Author needs to learn to make beta editions instead of major updates every few days. A true bandwidth eater in my opinion. Leaves multiple instances instead of doing overwrites. Very unclean programming. If you uninstall you will have lots of manual clean-up to get all updated versions out of your system. show Review details
Finalcrypt message verification and new inter 4 stars by ronuitzaandam423 Sep 15, 2018
FinalCrypt now forces message verification of an added message authentication code in the encrypted file, which prevents wrongly selected ciphers to (double) encrypt an already encrypted file. Also FinalCrypt 2.4.0 has got a more glossy user interface. Thank you for publishing. Kind regards, Ron de Jong (Author) show Review details
