For sensitive media such as this, we need an appropriate way to protect it – encryption provides a military level of protection from prying eyes and cyber criminals.
Follow the instructions in the video below step by step. If you prefer written instructions, these can be found below.
1. Choose which encryption you need.
2. Install the software and use it to secure your sensitive personal data.

b. Option B: Folder/file encryption;
