  • I once messaged the creator of AxCrypt and he was delighted that I compared it to PGP! Sad, really! This is just another example of how once trustworthy, simple programs turn into questionable installations and lose their value! If it was not broken, it should never have been mended! Also, the EyeCandy involvement has forced our favouring of the side of caution, all over the world! I used to use nothing but AxCrypt, but I am in the process of switching all old .axx files into another encrypted format. Goodbye, AxCrypt...I will readily mourn your passing...from the best of the best, to the most suspicious! A tragedy!

  • Had a small problem, but overall this is probably the best encrypter. I don't use it daily, as it's a lot of time spend, encrypting to de-encrypting something. - but it works. I just had to re-install Axcrypt, because to of my files were still in .axx file.

  • This crooks! They write here that the GNU GPL program, and she asks for mandatory activation! Clever! The source code is published, but there are no important files, so to compile it from the binary file is not possible. Therefore, this program under the GNU GPL will only have to buy.

  • What a joke. The trial version is so limited I could not even evaluate its effectiveness. No way I would purchase this even for 25.00 without knowing if it works. Thanks for nothing.

  • They are crooks! They violate the terms of the GNU GPL License! The new version 2.1 requires activation and without activation works 30 days !!!!
