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.
Similar/alternative apps: CryptoTE
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 :)

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

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.

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.

Infestedtassadar: download link appears to work as of Aug 15th

Would like to also point out that the download link (http://f0dder.dcmembers.com/downloads/fsekrit.zip) isn't correct and gives a "404 page not found.)

Try: http://f0dder.dcmembers.com/fsekrit/fsekrit.zip

fSekrit will - eventually - be opensourced, when I get around to cleaning up the source code. Unicode has been on the ToDo list for a while, but other issues have been more pressing, and unicode does crank up the executable size a bit, as well as requires some Win9x compatibility testing.

Anyway, it's only by chance I saw the discussion here, if you have requests or comments it's generally a lot smarter to post them at the DonationCoder forum where I *will* see them :)

I don't think this is exactly a replacement for Locknote (or vice versa)

fSekrit is smaller then Locknote (57KB vs 296KB)

Just wish that fSekrit was open sourced like Locknote is

Kimmy 2009-12-11 18:04

Oh ho! Is this a good replacement for LockNote, then? Why don't any of these programs support Unicode away?

Right, castrate the net because of idiots - great logic. Next up: Forbid all executable packers, because they COULD be used to obscure a trojan... oh wait, "Anti"-Virus manufacturers are already doing that.

World to idiot: there is no solution for people like you, except of common sense and education.
