Encrypt & Hide Text Before Sending It With Ncode.ME

It is generally advisable not to spill out personal information like passwords, credit card information etc, over the Internet – well, at least the public domain of it. Instant Messaging clients, social networks, forums etc, are the least safe place where you can share such information. However, what if you’re in a really dire need of sharing any personal information, and don’t have any other medium than to share it in risky environments. Or, suppose you want to deliver a message to a friend on a public forum and want to keep it such that only the two of you can decipher it? Does that hold true for you? This is where text encryption comes into play. These days, there are perhaps hundreds of free applications available that can encode and decode text for you using a variety of quite secure algorithms, and we've reviewed our fair share of them. With such a massive number of choices to pick from, one would usually look at, apart from the algorithm being employed, how easy the application is to configure and put to daily use. In that aspect, Ncode.ME is one solid contender. Read More

How To Root Your Android Phone Or Tablet
