[Files] Encryption (#141)

Postby cintanotes daily user » Tue Mar 31, 2009 12:57 pm

I have been using this program since it was introduced in the portablefreeware forum. What a great piece of software. It has replaced my notes tab in EssentialPIM (another great software).

I just only wish you could implement an encryption feature. I keep personal notes about clients and acct numbers that I would like to encrypt in case I misplace my thumb drive. What I am doing now is encrypting the data file with bfacs from Markus Hahn (another great software). Another option is to just place the whole Cintanotes director in my TrueCrypt volume...but again, I do not want to have to run Truecrypt portable every time I want to write a note.

Hello and thanks for all the kind words!

Encryption feature is on the roadmap for the future commercial version of the program. Unfortunately no time estimation as to when it will be available can be made right now, but if you register on the forum before the 1.0 version comes out, you'll be able to get a free commercial license.

Thanks a lot for mentioning the workarounds for encryption that you are using, I'm sure there will be CN users who will find this information helpful.
