Despite the volume of traffic on the internet, anything you send online is susceptible to hacking. You need to use encryption and not just any kind — the kind that even the fastest computers or networks won't be able to crack. If you have something digital that needs protection, take a look at these tips:

1. Encrypt your files while sharing them : Most of us don't think about this but it is always better to have a file encrypted before we share it with anyone. But the good news is, that this is really simple to do. Just head to a file transfer website that offers an encryption feature or you can opt for an email service that has the option of file encryption. Some options that you can try include,,,, Encrypto, et al.

2. Go for better encryption on cloud : For this, you can opt for a service called Boxcryptor that has support for most cloud storage providers. It also works across all popular desktop and mobile platforms.

3. Keep your emails safer : A service called SendSafely will do this for you. It offers end-to-end encryption so that you can send emails in a more secure manner. You can even use it with services like Gmail and Outlook as an extension. The free version will give you about 50MB per month.

4. Keep your information secret with this tool : There are times when we need to share information like ATM PIN or credit card details with a friend. We give the information because we have to but then get into the process of changing multiple passwords. You can avoid this by using a tool called PrivNote. It lets you send a note that gets deleted as soon as it's read. Furthermore, you can make it even more secure with a password. The service also has an option of sending you an email to notify that your note has been destroyed.

5. Encrypt Gmail : If you use Gmail, you should be aware of a tool called CryptUp - which also comes as a Chrome extension. The tool can be used for end-to-end encryption of your Gmail inbox. When you add the extension, it will add a 'secure compose' button next to the regular compose button in Gmail. You can also encrypt your attachments using it.
