Great, cheap, reliable encryption 5 stars by georgeunderwood15217 Sep 09, 2020
This is the best encryption software on the market, hands down. The easiest to use, most value for money. It is simply the best. I have tried multiple encryption softwares the last couple of years, and I have come to the conclusion that AxCrypt is by far the best one. show Review details
Version 1.7.3156 is the best! 4 stars by Hollinski Aug 19, 2018 (Read all my 3 reviews)
I tried the newer Version 2 and i think its crap. Hard to use and incompatible with the very good 1.7-Version. So you better use this older but much more easier-to-use-program to encrypt your files. show Review details
Mostly good 4 stars by SnappyAngel Feb 09, 2013 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I like this overall, for the reasons others have listed. It's easy to use and does the job well. There is one drawback, though, people should be warned about. More than once, I've opened an encrypted Word document, made several changes to it, hitting the "save" button at every turn, then closed the document only to have an error occur and all the changes I've made disappear, even though I supposedly "saved" the document several times. But that doesn't happen to me often. Overall I find this a handy program. show Review details
