A text editor with awesome security features and encryption:
SafePad is a simple free text editor that lets you encrypt your documents using the industry standard FIPS Compliant AES encryption algorithm (Advanced Encryption Standard). To protect your document you can provide 2 passwords (the 2nd password is optional). Passwords have always been a problem when it comes to security as users tend to pick a password that is easy for them to remember. This also means that the password is most likely easy to crack.
By using 2 passwords and performing multiple iterations of encryption, it makes it much harder to crack the passwords.Features and highlights
