You should encrypt your files to keep them safe from prying eyes. This is especially important when sending files to other Macs over untrusted email, instant messaging, and cloud-based services.

Scrambler is a simple, secure, and robust encryption app for the Mac. All you have to do is this:

1. Drag a file on Scrambler's icon in the menu bar
2. Type a password
3. Encrypt

To decrypt a scrambled file, just drag it back on Scrambler and type in the same password.

Other Features:
• You can also drag folders, or a collection of files and folders, on Scrambler — they will be encrypted into a single scrambled file
• The recipients of your scrambled files do not necessarily have to purchase Scrambler — they can download a free “decrypt-only” version of the app called Descrambler, also available on the Mac App Store
• You can configure Scrambler to automatically delete the original item(s) after encryption/decryption
• All icons, artwork, and user interface are fully compatible with the new retina display Macs

Technical Details:
• Uses industry-standard tar archiving and gzip compression
• Preserves OS X metadata of the original files, including extended attributes
• Uses 50,000 iterations of the industry-standard PBKDF2 key derivation function to generate the encryption key, which makes brute-force attacks on scrambled files practically impossible (unless the user chooses a weak password)
• Uses the secure industry-standard AES-256-CBC encryption algorithm
• Fully open and documented encrypted file format
• Scrambled files can, if desired, be decrypted in the OS X Terminal using free and open source command-line tools
• Runs in sandbox mode, a technology that vastly improves app security and is highly recommended by Apple for all Mac apps


What's new in Version 1.3

• Fixes visual bugs and adds support for dark mode on OS X Yosemite.
