How to Set a Default Password to Automatically Encrypt Archive

In order to protect archive file, a password is usually used to encrypt RAR/ZIP file. However, if every time when you compress files to ZIP/RAR archive, you need to set a password to encrypt it, it would be messy and bald. If we can set a password to encrypt compressed file, while files are compressed into an archive, it would be more convenient.

Actually, there is such functionality in compression software WinRAR. You can change some settings in it to set WinRAR to automatically add a password to compressed file, such as ZIP/RAR file while they are compressed.
