Veracrypt is a powerful software to create encrypted container under Linux (also support Windows). This tutorial will show you how to install Veracrypt on Manjaro 17.0.2. After installing Veracrypt we can create a special container that is encrypted with strong encryption method, so it will be unaccessible by any others without decryption/password. It is good to store data inside encrypted container so no one can copy and read its content.
Veracrypt 1.19 is available on Pacman repository. So we can easily install this software via Pamac software manager under Manjaro 17.0.2.
