Encrypt and Decrypt Private Text Messages With Scrambled Egg

For security reasons, you need to encrypt and password protect your private or secret text messages while sending it to somebody via email or any other ways. If you are looking a free, yet powerful encrypting and decrypting software, Scrambled-Egg might be a best choice. It supports all popular encrypting algorithms such as AES, ARC2, Blowfish, CAST, DES3 or RSA.
You can encrypt your text message (plain text, formatted text or a binary file) and the resulted string can be copied and sent on e-mail as text, or can be saved as XML, Json, UU, or PNG image.

The encrypted text message can be encoded in a printable form, using Base64, Base32, HEX, Quopri, string escape, UU, XML or Json.

In addition, the password is not stored inside the message. So, it’s impossible for someone to decrypt the message, unless it knows, or guesses your password.
