How to Encrypt iOS/Local Files on Windows

Apple provides an official way to encrypt your iDevice backup by using iTunes, taking only four steps. But iTunes, with entire backup encryption as its sole option, is far from an ideal encryption tool.

DearMob iPhone Manager, a military-grade encryption software, is designed to help you password encrypt files exported from iPhone, iPad or iPod, local photos/videos, and iDevice backup. Absolutely no security loop holes during file transferring and backup.
