Encrypt Easy

CNET Editors' review

While this file encryption program may not look like much, it packs a lot of punch into its tiny interface. Our only complaint is the constant nag screen.

Encrypt Easy can be accessed by either clicking on the desktop icon or through your context menu. Simply click on the file that you would like to encrypt/decrypt and right-click. The program's plain interface is easy to navigate, with drop-down menu to choose algorithm and a field to enter a password. Test files were immediately encrypted. In the same way, we were able to successfully decrypt files. The program does come with compression options, as well as a self extraction feature that allows you to email or copy encrypted files so that others can easily open without having Encrypt Easy installed on their computers. Recipients of test e-mails were able to decrypt the file using the password, and nothing else.

Though 30 days is plenty of time to get acquainted with the program, novice users will find it beneficial to view the short demo. We highly recommend Encrypt Easy for all user levels.

    "Be carefull atleast."

    December 18, 2006  |   By badomena

    Version: Encrypt Easy 3.1

    Pros

    Interface is clear and small, and it has all neccesary options for quick encryption.

    Integration with explorer is done nicely, doesn't add weight to the system itself.

    Cons

    CPU / Mem pool management is terrible. Errors most likely occur when used on slow comp, or when your CPU is on heavy duty already.

    DO NOT encrypt more than few files at a time, read above. Crashing corrupts file in process.

    Error messages in decryption are non-existant, and no thinking was given for repairing its own mistakes.

    Folder encrpytion is ridicilous.

    Wouldn't suggest it on anything else than single (small) file quick encryption.

    "I'm very happy with this product!"

    January 26, 2004  |  

    Version: Encrypt Easy 3.0

    Summary

    found and downloaded it here... tested out the demo and ordered my registered copy within 10 minutes... it's fairly basic and exactly what I needed... adds the encrypt / decrypt options to the right click menus in explorer windows so it takes seconds to encrypt/decrypt a file... tons of encryption methods... ya can encrypt whole directories at a time... also has a self extracting exe option so you can encrypt a file, email it to someone, and if they know the password can extract and decrypt it... try it
