Lokibit's free VSEncryptor is a capable, flexible, and easy-to-use file and text encryption tool that stands out from similar free (and pay) encryption tools by virtue of its extensive menu of encryption algorithms: 21 in all, from the familiar 128, 193, and 256-bit AES symmetric-key algorithms to lesser-known methods like SEED, SHACAL-2, and XTEA. You can designate a default algorithm and deselect unneeded ones and add VSEncryptor to Windows context menus to streamline VSEncryptor's operations, too. VSEncryptor is not only available in specific downloads for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, but also portable versions, too. We tried VSEncryptor Portable (… Read more

When you open UStream for the first time, you are greeted with numerous menus for browsing the library, from the … Read more

Hackers, identity thieves, and other would-be threats can't see your real ID or location, and neither can those creepy ads that know what you've been looking at. We've tried similar utilities, but they slowed down our browsing enough that we simply stopped using them. But two things have happened: 1) Online threats to your privacy and security have gotten bigger, meaner, and nastier; and 2) global Internet connections have gotten way faster. Some of the … Read more
