Editors' Review

Encrypting your sensitive documents is a great way to protect against the wandering virtual eyes of Internet hackers. EncyptOnClick offers a simple way to turn away predators.

This freeware program's interface cuts right to the basics of encryption and eliminates any guesswork. A simple box offers a choice between encrypting files and folders and another offers a chance to decrypt folders and files. Encryption is a snap. Users just click on the box and find the folder or file they wish to secure by searching through a file tree. Once chosen the program asks for a password and asks users to re-enter the password. Decrypting follows the same path and is just as simple.

EncryptOnClick quickly and easily locked our files from anyone without the password, but the program wasn't without its faults. The biggest trouble spot was the fact that once the password is entered and the file is decrypted, it remains open permanently. This means users must physically find the file and set the password each time it is opened. Other downloads keep the file encrypted until told otherwise. Another area where this program didn't meet the competition is its algorithm for encryption. More-advanced downloads offer a choice for users who wish to select the level of complexity their program is encrypted.

However, if these complaints don't concern you, or you really want to keep things simple, EncryptOnClick is easy to use and can help keep your files safe.

"Not too swift"

January 16, 2012  |  By carls3

 |  Version: EncryptOnClick 1.4.0.4

Pros

The author says: EncryptOnClick is like hiring your own highly experienced data security guard. I'd have to agree, with some reservations.

Cons

EncryptOnClick is like hiring your own highly experienced data security guard

I'd agree, but a guard you have tell in detail each time what to do. TEDIOUS. For a company that invented the HashOnEncrypt interface, this program is pathetic. Why not use the HOE interface again and save the tedium...

Summary

Tedious interface. Lots of work between deciding to encrypt and getting it done.

"This works great."

November 17, 2005  |  By gibbyg

 |  Version: EncryptOnClick 1.1

Pros

Quick and easy encrypting. FREE!

Cons

I would like to see a utility for encrypting/decrypting the currently displayed folder or file without having to browse. If it's there I can't find it.

But, you can't beat it for the price!
