There are many ways to encrypt our important files such as secret documents, videos, photos and any file with any format. One of the best way to set password for our important files is using WinRAR.
WinRAR is one of the most powerful software in the word which gives you the power of protecting your important files. We do not need to set password just for our important files, there are several crack files which are being deleted by windows defender. So, the best to keep our files is to encrypt them with WinRAR. It encrypt the data in two ways (RAR and Zip formats).
Later on we will come to know those two formats first open your computer browser download a WinRAR setup. Before downloading the setup see your computer that your computer is 32 bite or 64 bite. For seeing this on Desktop right click on This PC and click on Properties then you see that your computer is 32/64 bite. If your computer is 32 bite download for 32 bite operating systems, if your computer is 64 bite then download the 64 bite. Does not matter from which website you download the setup of WinRAR. The goodness of this software is that we can use it without any payment (there is need of cracking this software). Once you download and installed this software than you will be able to encrypt your important files. For encrypting important files using WinRAR follow step-by-step guide.

02: Click on Install icon till the WinRAR installs in your computer.
03: Click on OK icon.

RAR Format is a format which we cannot extract that without installing the WinRAR, if we do not install WinRAR first you will not be able to extract that file. For encrypting your data just create a folder and move all of your important files inside that folder. Right click on that folder then click on Add to Archive.
If you encrypt your files with zip format that is decrypt able without installing WinRAR. It zips the data in order to not to be deleted by the windows defender or other viruses. Create a folder then paste your files inside that folder. Select that folder then right click on that folder after that click on Send at last click on Compressed (Zipped) Folder.
