Getting Started

CryptoForge consists of four main modules that offer individual functionality:


CryptoForge Files

CryptoForge Files is a tool that works on files of any type and size, on any kind of drive. It allows you to encrypt files for secure storage on your PC, or to back them up encrypted in a remote PC or external drive, for instance. This program also includes a file shredder for secure destruction of sensitive files. An encrypted file created by this program can be sent by e-mail as an attachment.

CryptoForge Decrypter

CryptoForge Decrypter is a portable, free, and tiny app that allows the decryption of files on any computer without CryptoForge installed. This easy-to-use app does not require installation and can run from USB or external drives. It can also be freely sent to business partners or contacts, for instance, as e-mail attachment along with encrypted files.


CryptoForge Text

CryptoForge Text is a special text editor which is meant for sending encrypted information. It allows you to create documents with text and embedded files or images. Everything is converted into encrypted plain text, which you can simply copy and paste into any program like e-mail or instant messaging software. CryptoForge Text can also create a ready-to-send email message for you using your default e-mail program. When decrypting, CryptoForge Text rebuilds the document with any embedded objects.


CryptoForge Updater

CryptoForge Updater is a utility that helps you to keep CryptoForge up-to-date, which is particularly important in security software. The fact that Updater is a separate application ensures your privacy and gives you total control of when and how to check for updates. This utility can interact with Windows Task Scheduler, which is a service included in Windows that runs in the background, so that power users can schedule Updater to check for updates under your own rules and conditions.
