Save Encrypted Documents
Markdown Monster supports saving documents using encryption that protects files from prying eyes. When you save a document it's encrypted with a password of your choice and can then only be opened again by using that same password.
Files are encrypted using two-way TripeDES Encryption.
To encrypt a file:
- Open and edit your file as usual
- Use File -> Save As Encrypted File
- Pick a filename to save to
- Enter a password to encrypt the file with
Once a file has been saved with encryption you have to use Markdown Monster to re-open it. Markdown Monster embeds a marker into the document that identifies the document as a encrypted document and then automatically prompts for a password when re-opened.
To decrypt a file:
- Open the encrypted file
- Enter the password previously used to save the file
Once you encode a file with a password you have to use Markdown Monster to decode that file and open it again.
Also be sure to remember your password: You won't be able to open it if you forget the password. So please make sure you remember or properly store your password (hopefully in a password manager).
