The app can be useful to store passwords, credit card information and other things for personal use or for sharing important information with other people.
Encrypt is a good solution in cases where it is necessary to store sensitive information on an unprotected device, like a laptop, memory cards or unsecured cloud storage.
It is important to note that EncryptPad stores unprotected text in memory. Therefore, the application developer recommends closing EncryptPad when not in use.
