+<meta name="description" content="VeraCrypt is free open-source disk encryption software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. In case an attacker forces you to reveal the password, VeraCrypt provides plausible deniability. In contrast to file encryption, data encryption performed by VeraCrypt is real-time (on-the-fly), automatic, transparent, needs very little memory, and does not involve temporary unencrypted files."/>

+<h2>Using VeraCrypt Without Administrator Privileges</h2>
+<p>In Windows, a user who does not have administrator privileges <em>can</em> use VeraCrypt, but only after a system administrator installs VeraCrypt on the system. The reason for that is that VeraCrypt needs a device driver to provide transparent on-the-fly
+ encryption/decryption, and users without administrator privileges cannot install/start device drivers in Windows.<br>
+After a system administrator installs VeraCrypt on the system, users without administrator privileges will be able to run VeraCrypt, mount/dismount any type of VeraCrypt volume, load/save data from/to it, and create file-hosted VeraCrypt volumes on the system.
+ However, users without administrator privileges cannot encrypt/format partitions, cannot create NTFS volumes, cannot install/uninstall VeraCrypt, cannot change passwords/keyfiles for VeraCrypt partitions/devices, cannot backup/restore headers of VeraCrypt
+ partitions/devices, and they cannot run VeraCrypt in &lsquo;portable&rsquo; mode.</p>

+Warning: No matter what kind of software you use, as regards personal privacy in most cases, it is
+<em>not</em> safe to work with sensitive data under systems where you do not have administrator privileges, as the administrator can easily capture and copy your sensitive data, including passwords and keys.</td>
