Title: truecrypt
Post by: aryeh1 on January 08, 2017, 11:52:26 AM
Anyone know if this is still safe to use , I know they discontinued it but wondering if it can have any issues that would stop it from working..
Thanks!

There were some vulnerabilities found with truecrypt after it was audited by cryptography experts. Better to use veracrypt instead which is a fork of truecrypt that is still actively maintained. The bugs that were found in truecrypt were fixed in veracrypt
