Encryption Wizard
Protect your personal information with this simple, cross-platform encryption tool

Encryption Wizard is an easy-to-use Java-based file and folder encryption tool. It's been developed by the US military but this version is free for anyone to use.

The program is extremely small, just a 1.23MB JAR file and a couple of help files, which means it's ideal for protecting files on USB drives. And being written in Java is another advantage, as it'll work anywhere there's an up-to-date Java engine installed: PCs, Macs or Linux.

Encryption Wizard is also very easy to use. All you have to do is drag and drop the files (or folders) you'd like to encrypt onto the program, click Encrypt and enter a passphrase (or it can generate one for you, if you prefer). You then have the option to securely delete the original files, after which the program will encrypt your files using 128-bit AES with a click.

But there's plenty more functionality if you need it. If you're not happy with passphrases, say, you can use a PKI or X509 certificate, or even a suitable smart card (CAC/ PIV). There's also support for compressing files; you can add metadata to the document which won't be encrypted (handy if you've a bunch of encrypted files and want to quickly find the right one); and the program's operation can be customised in a variety of ways.

Version 3.4.11 (Changelog):
New logo! As the Software Protection Initiative program comes to a close, its strongest products -- some in the form of software, some in the form of concepts and practices -- are moving to a new home. As before, Encryption Wizard will continue to be included inside our most well-known software: the bootable LPS, now called Trusted End Node Security, or TENS. More info to come!

Changed some internal support libraries. Users on 64-bit operating systems should see a speedup in long-running operations.
This should be the final normal release of the 3.4 series. The next EW release will be 3.5.0, but we will of course create additional 3.4.x releases if any bugs or weaknesses in 3.4.11 or the Java platform are found to threaten users' security.

Verdict:

An easy to use, cross-platform and surprisingly powerful encryption tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
