Cryptainer LE Free Encryption Software

CNET Editors' review

File encryption is the way to go to prevent prying eyes from viewing important documents, but no one wants to mess with a lengthy encryption process. Cryptainer LE Free offers users a quick and easy way to securely encrypt their private data.

The program introduces two separate windows to your desktop at startup. The larger of the two windows walks you through the setup process for creating an encrypted volume. First, you have to browse for and select the location for the volume. Next, the program asks you to enter a label for the container, the volume size (up to 25MB), and a password. Finally, you have to select from two different encryption algorithms (Blowfish448 and AES256). We quickly went through each step to create our encrypted container, which appeared on our desktop. Upon creation, the smaller window expanded to include our encrypted volume. It was there that we were able to drag and drop files for immediate encryption. We were also given the options to view our encrypted files in Windows Explorer, load and unload the files, and encrypt the files to send by email. Each time we tried to access Cryptainer, it successfully prompted us for our password. Creating and sending encrypted files by e-mail was as simple as selecting the file and applying a password. The program gives you the option of creating an encrypted self-extractor so that your recipient can decrypt the file without having to install Cryptainer. The program includes a very lengthy Help file as well as startup tips, so you're covered.

Cryptainer LE Free installs a desktop icon without asking, but cleanly uninstalls. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Full of Malware!!!!!!"

    May 14, 2013  |   By hotdog1953db

    Version: Cryptainer LE Free Encryption Software 10.0

    Pros

    Not a single one!

    Cons

    Scam And full of viruses and malware.

    Summary

    I followed the CNET links and downloaded this product. It downloaded a basket full of malware, viruses, and trojans. It immediately took over my Firefox browser and caused my computer to crash. It took several days to finally get the last detectable infection out and I am not sure that I got it all. STAY AWAY FROM IT!
