  • Easiest encryption you'll ever use: NordLocker offers a fast and intuitive interface. But don’t be deceived by the basic process. As soon as you drag a file into the locker, it's encrypted with the most advanced ciphers and principles
  • Supports all file types: Create lockers — your digital safes — and protect your data from hackers. Add any file. No one can open your locker or know what's inside without your permission.
  • Keep your files anywhere you like: After you encrypt files on your computer, you can transfer them anywhere you like. Like your favorite cloud provider. Or a removable drive. Or keep them on your computer. No matter where your files go, the locker protects them.
  • Share securely: Need to transfer confidential data to a partner or a client? Give them access to the encrypted file and send it through email, messenger apps, upload to the cloud, or choose any other service – any way is safe when your files are secured by NordLocker.


  • This software is only supported on Windows 10 platforms. Installation will fail on earlier platforms.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
