Some labs may wish to better protect their data from casual inspection or accidental disclosure. This is possible within PsychoPy® using a separate python package, pyFileSec, which grew out of PsychoPy®. pyFileSec is distributed with the StandAlone versions of PsychoPy®, or can be installed using pip or easy_install via https://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyFileSec/

Some elaboration of pyFileSec usage and security strategy can be found here: https://pythonhosted.org/PyFileSec

Basic usage is illustrated in the Coder demo > misc > encrypt_data.py
