Editors' review

This isn't the perfect file encryption program, but it works well enough that it should appeal to some privacy minded novice users. Absolute Password Protector's simple button and text interface is easy to navigate. The publisher left out the text in one important link explaining encrypting into a text file, but most users will figure out the missing information and the rest of the text is clearly written.

The Absolute Password Protector demo is limited to files of 10KB or less, and it took seconds to encrypt or decrypt test files. It's easy to access the program with a context menu shortcut, and the process is quick and easy. Enter a password and save the file to complete the process. The program offers options to delete or shred the original file. Users can also choose to hide the encrypted file into an image.

The program's 128-bit encryption is fine for most personal users. A helpful feature makes it easy to quickly send an encrypted file through your default e-mail app. However, recipients must also have Absolute Password Protector to decrypt the file.

Inexperienced users looking to encrypt files for personal use will like Absolute Password Protector's simple approach. Experienced users looking for more features, or those sharing encrypted files, should continue their search for the perfect application.
