Software Update: VeraCrypt 1.26.12 – Computer – Downloads

VeraCrypt originated as a fork of TrueCrypt, an open source encryption software that can be used to encrypt a hard drive, partition, or virtual volume. VeraCrypt uses the original TrueCrypt source code, but includes several security improvements.
