WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues

This page exists only to help migrate existing data encrypted by TrueCrypt.

The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP. Windows 8/7/Vista and later offer integrated support for encrypted disks and virtual disk images. Such integrated support is also available on other platforms (click here for more information). You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform.

Yes . . . TrueCrypt is still safe to use.
Although the disappearance of the TrueCrypt site, whose ever-presence the Internet community long ago grew to take for granted, shocked and surprised many, it clearly came as no surprise to the developers who maintained the site and its namesake code for the past ten years. An analysis of the extensive changes made to TrueCrypt's swan song v7.2 release, and to the code's updated v3.1 license, shows that this departure, which was unveiled without preamble, was in fact quite well planned.

Last week I wrote about the suspicious and abrupt announcement that TrueCrypt, a popular free open source encryption solution, was being abandoned and is considered “harmful and no longer secure”. In the article I covered the potential motives for this including the technical challenges with producing full disk encryption on modern hardware and operating systems. Whilst at this time there is little to add in terms of the potential motives for this sudden announcement a variety of interesting things have happened to the project since – including announcements that mean TrueCrypt may not be as dead as we thought.
