Thunar-Encryption-Plugin (aka GCryFolder) is a software that integrates the management of encrypted folders within file managers using a contextual menu and a GTK GUI for password input. It supports encrypted filesystems like CryFS and EncFS.

It includes a Thunar (XFCE) extension and a desktop file matching inode/directory to display a contextual menu in other file managers.

It is written in BASH and in C language for the GTK password prompt GUI and the Thunar extension.
