    "Caution!!! Read "All versions" negative reviews first"

    September 10, 2009  |   By joehec

    Version: AutoKrypt 8.12

    Pros

    It has a nice looking interface. But that's it. I've done quite a bit research on this app. The company literally bribes many users into giving this app a five star rating.

    Cons

    Read All negative comments from user reviews on the All-versions link BEFORE downloading Advanced file lock to understand what you are in for with this product!!!

    Summary

    My personal experience: Having forgotten (AutoKrypt thinks so) the unlock password for AutoKrypt 8.10, it locked the computer up! I had to Force restart computer (not good for system stability) which allowed the computer to operate, but I still can't remove program.

    More than 2 months later, their "24 hour-a-day guaranteed" customer service still has not provided help. Just email them and observe the 100% silence for yourself.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from AutoKrypt .

    "Way too much for me"

    February 25, 2009  |   By jeffrod444

    Version: AutoKrypt 8.12

    Pros

    Appears to be powerful

    Cons

    Entirely too complicated. The app is skinned like a Unix app so it seems a bit foreign. Web site tutorials were not as descriptive as I needed.

    Summary

    This would probably be useful for someone that is doing a lot of encryption tasks that would benefit from batch automation, or maybe even some other type power users.

    I, however, am not a power user. I just want to encrypt an occasional file. I dont want to set up tasks, profiles, schedules, monitors or any of the other things this app can do. I would describe how to set up a encryption task except that I wasnt able to get one set up. It does include some overhead before you run the task though - like setting up encryption profiles and output filters.

    Ultimately, I found this app to be completely unusable. I give it a 2 (over a 1) only because I dont think I am the target audience for this app.
