Previously, we posted How to encrypt Data and files/folders on Linux.There we gave a quick view on VeraCrypt,a GUI based Encryption tool.

We found that VeraCrypt is available only in archive tar.bz2 and not available in simpler to install .deb or .rpm formats, even on Ubuntu and other software stores are not availing the downloads of VeraCrypt.
So here is a very quick and simple post on how to install VeraCrypt very quickly with just few commands typed by our keyboard.



Step 1: Download VeraCrypt from Download Page

Step 2: Extract the downloaded file using any file archive manager or launch the terminal and enter the following commands:
tar -xf veracrypt-1.19-setup.tar.bz2(Change the file name as in your system)

Step 3:After extracting the file,you will get a folder with some set-up files under it.Just find the best and suitable set-up for your system and then all we have to do is to start the set-up by hitting the following commands:
sudo bash veracrypt-1.19-setup-gui-x64(Change the file name as in your system)
terminal commands to install VeraCrypt


Step 4:After you enter the mentioned command,you will get a pop-up window.

Now,Just fire up veracrypt and select your files/folders or Disks to encrypt and secure your data with few clicks.
Have a great Linux Day :)
