Editors' review

This free file encryption programs straightforward user interface and flawless performance make it one of the better programs we've seen.

Androsa FileProtector's simple, but a professional user interface makes this a great encryption program for beginners and no-fuss users. The menu options and toolbar run across the top, along with a technical support and Web site button. The main window displays the encrypted files. It's easy to add a file, especially with the option of dragging and dropping them onto the interface. One click on the protect button, and you simply choose your encryption algorithm and enter a password. We were able to just as quickly and easily decrypt files.

We loved this program for its no-nonsense approach to file encryption and highly recommend it for all users. It didn't leave any traces on our computer when we uninstalled it.

    "1.4.4 is corrupt, impossible to remove"

    January 02, 2014   |   By juicyone23

    Version: Androsa FileProtector 1.4.4

    Pros

    NONE what a piece of crap.

    Cons

    even with 3rd party "specialized" uninstallers it will not uninstall, it freezes any uninstaller I've thrown at it
    Luckily for me, I tested it on a couple non essential files, which I will never see again....
    it constantly tries to upgrade, but just locks up

    Summary

    Do not install, you will have a hell of a time trying to remove
    WHY does CNET keep putting software up that is junk? they must make a ton of money to host this crap.

    "Install faulty & maker now seems to be defunct"

    June 24, 2013   |   By DiscipleC2

    Version: Androsa FileProtector 1.4.4

    Pros

    A potentially great, easy to use encryption program.

    Cons

    With 2 different attempts to install, a message came up saying that the installation path could not be found. When I went to the maker's website for help I found that their domain name was for sale, so they are apparently out of business.

    Summary

    A potentially great program with installation mugs that is apparently now an abandoned orphan product.

    "Big kiss to the inventor!"

    April 15, 2012   |   By LiliaMSU

    Version: Androsa FileProtector 1.4.4

    Pros

    Better than some paid programs!

    Cons

    100% perfect!

    Summary

    This is one of those ''Oh my God, I can't believe they are actually giving it for free!'' - type of program. After you down-load this program you click on the photo (or file) you want to encrypt, then right-click, go to ''Androsa'', type the password and it locks your photo. I tried other ''hide-encrypt'' programs, not long ago a big one (around $70) was offered on a Giveaway site, I tried it.... and after 20 minutes I uninstalled it. With other similar programs you encrypt your photo and then you have to ''shred'' the original. Ugh? You don't have this type of nonsense with Androsa. Download it quickly before it becomes a paid program!

    "Probably the best free File Protection Software around"

    January 14, 2011   |   By ReviewingTheFreeware

    Version: Androsa FileProtector 1.4.4

    Pros

    I've tried several of these programs, if not all, but this one comes without bugs. So I can safely protect my files without fear of not being able to unprotect them. I use it for about 2 years now and it does the job well.

    Cons

    A minor con is that you're not able, while unprotecting your files, to choose another destination folder.

    "Not what I was looking for"

    October 01, 2010   |   By Spanwite

    Version: Androsa FileProtector 1.4.4

    Pros

    It's free; It works fine on the C-Drive.

    Cons

    I could not get it to work on other Partitions on complete Folders instead Files.

    Summary

    Don't use it anymore, still looking for the Program for my needs; has to be easy to use.
