Keep your DATA PRIVATE - Encfs Manager in Ubuntu, Windows or Mac

Features of EncFSMP:
  • Mounts EncFS folders on Windows and OS X
  • Can create, edit, export and change the password of EncFS folders
  • Is 100% compatible with EncFS 1.7.4 on Linux
  • Completely free, no nags, no additional downloads like toolbars etc.
With EncFS MP, you can store your data in an encrypted folder (works for usb memory sticks as well). This is especially important if you store your sensitive data in a cloud service like Dropbox or Google Drive.Since EncFS exists on many platforms, you can access your data from a Windows PC, from an Apple computer, from Linux (using the built-in EncFS), or even from an Android device (using Cryptonite).Although EncFSMP is an open source project and its source code is released under the MIT license, it contains a closed-source component. The file system component that allows EncFSMP volumes to be mounted is called Pismo File Mount and is developed by Pismo Technic Inc.. Other than that, EncFSMP is 100% open source.
