Encryption program for text that uses Salsa20, ChaCha20 or HC-256 with a 256-bit key. Encodes the encrypted information for easier handling.


  • In addition to offering HEX, there are also two other encoding methods, one with only letters and one with only symbols.
  • Can be used to only encode the text, then leave the field password blank.
  • Detects whether there are illegal characters (characters that don't belong to the encoding method) at decoding / decryption.
  • This encryption program makes use of a key strengthening algorithm which delays the final encryption key for a few seconds, this increases the security.
  • The program compresses the text to increase the security.
  • The program stores an encrypted checksum of the compressed original text, which is verified at decryption.
  • You don't need to enter the password twice, instead you can press [F12] if you want to show or hide the password.
