We’ve put together a list of some encryption services out there for you to choose from:

Kruptos 2 Pro: This is another great option to keep your files and data safe from thieves and hackers. It offers extras like file name changing as well as file shredding. It also has a great help guide that makes itself known right from the beginning, so you never feel lost or like you are on your own.
