fSekrit v1.4

  • Released on 3 Dec 2009
  • Suggested by dasfx

fSekrit is a notepad that encrypts saved information in self-contained executable (.EXE) files. Created files don't need fSekrit and can be access by simply double-clicking the item and entering the correct password.

Uses the widely recognized 256-bit AES encryption and unencrypted data is never saved to disk, making it even more secure.

Functional in 64-bit.

System requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware/Open Source (github)
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice.
  2. Create a new file called fSekrit.portable
  3. Launch fSekrit.exe.

What's new? - fixed: long-standing bug where failing to save changes when closing fSekrit
with a modified document would cause fSekrit to exit, rather than notifying of
error and let user attempt to save again.
- fixed: saves are *finally* done properly, by saving to a temporary file and
replacing the current file only when all the file writing business is done.
- added: font selection dialog, no longer do you need to much around with the
registry to set another default font. The font is still not stored in your
document, though, and is single global per-user registry setting.
- added: "portable" mode, which (for now) means it will not use %TEMP% to store
it's temporary editor executable, but instead store it in the same folder as
the opened document. Registry is still used for font selection, though!
To enabel this feature, create a file called "fSekrit.portable" in the same
folder as the document you want to function in portable mode.
- added: URLs are now recognized and turned into hyperlinks.
- fixed: Read-only notes should be a lot more sane - changed from confusing
"make read-only" that half-worked to "Save As Read-only" that works :)
- fixed: Win9x and NT4 support has been broken since version 1.35. Release builds
are now done with an older compiler toolchain, and 9x/NT4 support is back :)

You can easily get the fsekrit program from the wayback machine at:
https://web.archive.org/web/20170214195855/http://f0dder.dcmembers.com/fsekrit.index.php it says it is also valid for Win7 use.

I found that the version of the zip for fsekrit on the waybackmachine for 2015 is valid at 49kbytes size, the some in later snapshots are only 10kbytes and do not work.

@Sherman J
You do not need to download fSekrit from The Internet Archive, you can get it from its official website.

ClipSecure v1.2

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

ClipSecure is a simple text and file encryption utility that uses automatic compression and many industry-standard algorithms, including AES. The text encryption operates within the Windows clipboard, and therefore can be used within any text-based program and most email clients. File encryption includes file wipe capability and is intended primarily for files under 10 megs.

One of the best in this category, but it does not support unicode.

I have been using ClipSecure for over a year now, and I love it. I use it for my emails with my family and to secure my confidential documents on my portable USB dive when I travel. I keep a copy on the drive and load it onto any computer I use at any net cafe. I am not a sophisticated user, and it is very convenient and user friendly for me.

Crypditor v1.21

webfork on 2 Nov 2016

Crypditor is a tabbed text editor that encrypts what you write. It is designed to store sensitive information such as PINs, serial numbers, passwords etc. The encrypted data is stored together with the EXE file itself, so launching the program will load the information directly after entering password.

Uses the AES encryption algorithm.

Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the single EXE file to a folder of your choice. Launch Crypditor.exe.

Not if you make changes and save with a password.

Angkor on 2007-08-21 04:18

The advantage of Crypditor: it can handle more than one textfile. And it works with Vista.

infestedtassadar-x17 on 2008-12-27 22:26

This program saved a few of my documents to plane text (document was saved at the end of the file.) Not sure if I am just using a password that's too long. Check it with Notepad++

fsekrit is a good program also but doesn't have tabbing

Only 20 bytes? Now that's what I call a lightweight program. ;-)

Andrew Lee on 2006-05-30 22:50

Sorry! My typo. It should be 20KB.

CD2100 on 2008-11-19 14:49

Dariusz Stanislawek is the king of lightweight portable (encryption)freeware! although i don't use cryptnote very often, it is of the same calibre as his other creations!
check out his page on the other products. http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware/ Stanislawek is truly a programming genius!
