You can enable strong AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption with the key length from 128 to 256 bits. It will allow you to protect backup files from other people.
Encryption algorithm - Choose whether you need to encrypt backups and if yes, select the encryption type. You can select one of the following encryption methods:
- ZIP Password protection - It is not recommended to use it because it does not ensure secure protection. However, you can use practically any ZIP archiving software to recover data from the protected archive.
- AES 128-bit encryption method - It combines fairly secure protection and high encryption rate. You will have to use DoubleSafety or such programs as WinZip or WinRar for recovery.
- AES 256-bit encryption method - It ensures the most secure protection. You will have to use DoubleSafety or such programs as WinZip or WinRar for recovery.
Password - Specify the password for encrypting the backups. If you forget the password, you will not be able to restore the information. Note that the password is case-sensitive.
Confirm the password - Specify the password once again to make sure you made no mistake the first time.
