AxCrypt provides a user-friendly interface, making it easy for individuals to encrypt and decrypt files. The software integrates seamlessly with the file explorer in Windows, allowing users to encrypt files with just a right-click. AxCrypt allows for secure file sharing by enabling users to encrypt files and share them with others. Recipients of the encrypted files can decrypt them using their own AxCrypt account or a password provided by the sender.

PROS

AxCrypt provides a user-friendly interface, making it easy for individuals to encrypt and decrypt files. The software integrates seamlessly with the file explorer in Windows, allowing users to encrypt files with just a right-click.

CONS

AxCrypt relies on user-generated passwords to encrypt and decrypt files. While this is a standard practice, it also means that the security of the encrypted files heavily depends on the strength and confidentiality of the user's password. Users need to choose strong, unique passwords and keep them confidential to maintain the integrity of their encrypted files.

Reason for choosing AxCrypt

AxCrypt uses industry-standard AES-256 encryption, which is a highly secure encryption algorithm. This ensures that files are protected with a robust level of encryption.

Reasons for switching to AxCrypt

It was a recommendation from internal auditors because software version did not have AES-256 encryption.

Good value and easy to use

Overall very positive. I've used AxCrypt for many years and been very happy with what it does for me.

PROS

I probably only use small percentage of the AxCrypt functionality, but it does everything I need. I just encrypt personal files I keep on Google Drive. I especially like the functionality which allows me to open encrypted files, make changes to them and save files without decrypting them first and re-encrypting them.

CONS

When you delete encrypted files, it appears that AxCrypt keeps a database of all encrypted files and when you simply delete them from the file system without decrypting them first, I get pop-ups indicating that they can't find files.
