Kryptel could not be easier. If you don't forget your PW, you won't have any issues. I've used it for years. show Review details
Good encryption at a fair price 4 stars by realbull2009250 May 06, 2013 (Read all my 60 reviews)
I received the Standard 6.2.3 version as a giveaway. I have a Win7 64-bit system and when I first used it I had a problem. It encrypted a DOC file and decrypted it OK. The file is displayed in Kryptel's own explorer interface, but I could not open it up in MS Word. I got a message from MS Word that the DOC file didn't exist. It was a good thing that I used a test version. Anyway it worked OK on my 2nd try. Maybe the problem was because of no native 64-bit version? It is very easy to use. Just go to the file you want to encrypt, left click, select encrypt on the menu and the program opens up where you can enter a password. I don't know the password letter limit, but it can be at least 20 letters long. The encrypted file will change into a Kryptel file extension, so when you want to decrypt the file, just click on it and it will open up in Kryptel. It also has a batch mode, encrypted file modifier, tag-on comments, scan for encrypted files, drag & drop, add files, file based key, verify after encryption, command-line mode, interface options, roll-back option, data recovery tool for corrupted encrypted files, shredder and file compressor. It has some very minor graphical glitches, no built-in EXE self-extractor creator and I think it needs a 64-bit version. But overall it is very good. show Review details
