    Thanks for a great write-up. Have you heard of Cloakapps? I’m searching for an alternative to some of the other popular encryption apps in the market. Really intrigued because Cloakapps doesnt actually require passwords and i’ve seen how it works for files of varying formats. Would love if you can talk about it soon!:)
