It's almost unimaginable that only a few years ago, data encryption software was something that was barely used at home or in small offices. Today, it's standard.
With PixelCryptor, users are able to protect their data with a password, but in this case, a picture is the password. The program takes care of both encrypting and decrypting data.
In order to access your data in the future, you need to us the image you used when you created the file. This could be anything you want: a blank photo, a picture of your first born or something from the family vacation album.
PixelCryptor is cool idea with practical usage! And it's free.
Installation note: During the first few steps of installing PixelCryptor on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.
