Protect Me! creates secure executable (.exe) container files to which you can add any files and directories you want to! Your files will be stored securely inside the container file. To ensure a maximum of security, Protect Me! uses SHA1 for password validation and AES for encryption. The container file can either run or extract your files once you typed in the right password.


  • Easily password-protect any file you want!
  • You get one .exe file which contains the encrypted file(s).
  • The result will be just a few KB bigger than the encrypted files themselves!
  • Your data is really secure!
  • SHA1 for password validation.
  • AES (Rijndael) for your data.
  • The container file is compiled at runtime!
