How to Encrypt a folder ?

First you need to install encfs and fuse-utils packages

$ apt-get install encfs fuse-utils

So

$ encfs  "secret path folder" "mount point with encfs filesystem"
$ encfs /home/joe/Desktop/secret /media/crypt-files

Now
you have mounted a encfs filesystem and you can paste or save all
information to encrypt in the “/media/crypt-files” mount point.
To hide the information (unmount the cifs filesystem):

$ fusermount -u /media/crypt-files

Now if you open the /home/joe/Desktop/secret folder you’ll see the files encrypted.
For mount it one more time and use or read the info

$ encfs /home/joe/Desktop/secret /media/crypt-files

give the pass and it’s done
