Stockholm, Sweden – Coding Turtle today is pleased to announce the release of Scrambler 1.2.2, an update to their simple encryption app for the Mac. Scrambler makes it convenient to encrypt files before sending them along unsafe places, such as to other Macs over untrusted email, instant messaging or cloud-based services. Scrambler resides in the menu bar, providing a small icon in the upper-right area of the screen. To encrypt a file/folder with Scrambler, users drag it on Scrambler’s menu bar icon and type in a password via a small and non-intrusive pop-up window.
