TrueCrypt is a discontinued encryption program developed by anonymous developer(s) the TrueCrypt Team. TrueCrypt was abruptly discontinued in May 2014, with a warning given to users that it may contain unfixed security issues. Despite this, a few months later an independent audit team led by cryptographer Matthew Green found that TrueCrypt did not have any significant vulnerabilities.

The first version of TrueCrypt was released in February 2004, with continued releaseds until its discontinuation. TrueCrypt has since forked into a number of alternative projects, with VeraCrypt and Ciphershed being two of the most popular.
