Editors' Review

+

Return to the carefree days when encryption tools only took plain text and turned it into a mish-mash of characters. Executable freeware AES (256bit)'s interface is just a two field/two button dialog box. One field is for text to encrypt and the other for the password. The two buttons make it easy to encrypt or decrypt text.

Two fields, two buttons, and no need to read the manual. Paste the text to encrypt, enter a password and immediately see the encrypted text. Decrypting just reverses the easy process.

It's easy to use the program to send quick encrypted messages to friends, and it doesn't them anything to have this freeware application on hand. This is the simplest of tools in terms of features, but that's more than half its beauty. It's small, secure, and effective, and anyone can use it.

    "Installs great, but doesn't run"

    September 20, 2014   |   By toloyo

    Version: AES (256-bit) 1.0

    Pros

    Installs quickly

    Cons

    After it installs, it doesn't run. There is no option to encrypt a file when I right click on a file. I installed again, it was smart enough to see that I already installed it. For some reason it must be incompatible with WIndows 8.1 as shipped out of the box.

    Summary

    Not compatible with Windows 8.1 out of the box. Probably needs some undocumented Windows tweak to actually work.

    "Just what I needed"

    November 24, 2007   |   By virago81

    Version: AES (256-bit) 1.0

    Pros

    This is just a simple piece of software that let's you encrypt strings using AES. If you are working on an implementation of AES, it's the perfect tool for validating that your encryption algorithm is working correctly.

    Cons

    Not much. It does what it was designed to do.

    "Oh, Gee! Look what we have here! A "TEXT" encryption program! Yahoo!"

    December 05, 2006   |   By 7upclickerticker

    Version: AES (256-bit) 1.0

    Pros

    Well, I'll be darned... 256bit AES "TEXT" Data Encryption!!!! All that power for "TEXT" data no less! Hey! This software really does one hell of a job!

    Can't even break any of the "TEXT" documents I encrypted with it by using decryption programs.... Which means it's really tough. That's a good sign.

    A Good and very powerful program to have.

    Definite recommend.

    Cons

    No cons. It does EXACTLY what it says it can do... Which is to encrypt "TEXT" data. I'm glad I took the time to READ the 'product description', otherwise I might be led to think it was meant to encrypt more than just "TEXT".

    "This is really pretty useless..."

    June 20, 2006   |   By petgraveyard

    Version: AES (256-bit) 1.0

    Pros

    Well, it can at least encrypt and decrypt text with AES...

    Cons

    It can't really do much else. I guess if you like encrypting and decrypting text this is your program...
