From: Dewald Pretorius, owner of SocialOomph.com

The alarming revelations of the extent to which our privacy is being
invaded by governments have inspired me to create a free encryption service
that is for everyone. It is gratis, it's extremely easy to use, and it's
anonymous (no need to sign up).

https://www.encryptfree.com

Essentially, you use the free service to encrypt the text you want to
protect, paste the encrypted version into an email, tweet, Facebook post,
Google+ post, etc., and give the decryption password to the intended
recipient. The recipient uses the site to decrypt the text using the
password you chose (only someone who knows the password can decrypt the
text).

It's extremely easy to use. Nothing to install and nothing to configure.
And as the name suggests, it will always be free.

If you know someone who can benefit from the service, please tell them
about it.

https://www.encryptfree.com

If you're so inclined, please send tweets about the service and/or write a
blog post about it, or record a Youtube video.

Please think of usage scenarios and let other people know about the site. I
believe there are many folks who would prefer a little more privacy when
communicating online, but do not have the money to purchase or the
technical expertise to configure commercial encryption products.

The EncryptFree service is intended for us, the "little guys".

Best regards,

Dewald Pretorius
