Encrypto aims to keep prying eyes away from your sensitive data

MacPaw, the company behind apps like CleanMyMac and Hider 2, has released Encrypto, an app for secure file sharing. Encrypto allows you to drag and drop files onto the app's window, which you can then secure with a password. You can also leave a password hint, so the person you send it to can decrypt it in Encrypto as well.

Encrypto utilizes AES-256 encryption to keep your files safe. The app allows you to share using Mail, Messages, AirDrop, and more. Encrypto is also available for Windows, so you don't need a Mac to share items. If you're just looking to secure documents for yourself, you can also choose to save them to your hard drive.

Generally, the original file remains unencrypted, if, however, you already own MacPaw's Hider 2, you can also choose to hide the original copy behind that app's encryption.

Encrypto is a free app, and can be downloaded now from the Mac App Store.
