Protecting your important data by applying various encryption algorithms is a fairly common practice, but Espionage takes things even further by implementing a “plausible deniability” function designed to keep data safe in case you are forced to share your master password.

Minimalist data protection solution featuring a powerful encryption AES-256 algorithm

To help you get started, Espionage comes with a setup assistant that will help you create your master password. However, the application enables you to create multiple folder sets, and assign a new password to each one: depending on the passkey provided, Espionage will unlock a different folder list.

Working with Espionage is extremely easy: simply drag and drop the folder you ant to encrypt on top of the Espionage status bar menu. The app will create virtual vaults to protect the data, but keep in mind that even when locked, the folders together with their size will be visible, even if the contents are hidden.

Automatically lock the encrypted folders and effortlessly integrate the Spotlight search

Each folder encrypted by using Espionage comes with a collection of customization options designed to improve your overall experience. First off, you can enable the auto lock function which means the directory will be encrypted if not used for a certain period of time.

In addition, if you enable the Spotlight function, you will be able to use the system wide search tool to find items inside the encrypted folders, but only when unlocked. Additional options include the possibility to change the Espionage hotkey, or the notification method.

Streamlined data encryption solution designed to handle multiple folder sets

Espionage is a great tool to have around if you need to encrypt specific directories without too much hustle: the app is using the AES-256 algorithms, and the procedure is reduced to a simple drag and drop action. Noteworthy is the “plausible deniability” function: you can create multiple folder sets and assign different master passkeys.

What's New in This Release:
  • Security:
