Encrypt Word document
 

 
Encrypting MS Word documents can be useful when sending sensitive information in Word documents to others. When no encryption is used you may just as well send the information in a plain email. It is visible for anyone who wants to have a look at it. Compare it to sending sensitive information on a postcard. Anyone who has access to the post card in transit will be able to read the information. The same holds for sending unsecure MS Word files. At any stage during the file transfer people can read the information.  
 
What to check this yourself? Just start notepad and open a MS Word document. You will see you can just see your text embedded in some garbage data. We've done it for  you. Have a look at these screen prints. On the left the document is not encrypted. On the right it is encrypted using the encOffice software.
 

 
We have written encOffice to be able to have an easy way to secure your MS Word files without having to do anything complicated. encOffice adds a save secure button to MS Office (Word and Excel). It is the normal save button but then with a key on top of it to denote secure save. When you press it encOffice will copy your file and save it as an encrypted Word document and it forces you to make a strong password. If you want to read more about secure password please read:
