VeraCrypt is volume encryption software that functions like an attached drive, making it possible to actively work with data like any other drive until the volume is dismounted. The program supports favorites, hot keys, hardware acceleration, and auto-mount options. Includes a variety of available tools for added security including keyfiles, security tokens, hidden volumes, auto-dismount, cascaded encryption and cached password management.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac and Linux. Alternatively, VeraCrypt Portable is also available.

VeraCrypt is based on the inactive TrueCrypt, attempting to solve some of the program's documented weaknesses. The program can open and convert TrueCrypt volumes.

Version 1.25: Drop support of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 because of new requirement for driver code signing.

@CornHolio - In terms of security, TrueCrypt is probably more than adequate for 98% of users. It's still very hard for someone to get into your data. However, VeraCrypt likely works better with whole-disk security and has some speed improvements.

v1.24 Update 7

Select Windows 8 and above, runs as 64 bit on Windows 10 according to Task Manger. Seems to have both 32 and 64 bit in download. Using PortableApps version 64 bit runs on Windows 10 64 bit.

@Gougueuleu: that's true, but we've listed admin in the requirements section. As to weather that's "true" portable depends on who you ask.

v1.24 Update 4

On MS windows, this is not a portable version : It needs an admin account, to dezip and install the exe.

v1.24 Update 4
