CNET Editors' review

If you like the idea of on-the-fly encryption for files with sensitive data, you'll want to try this app.

HandyCrypto offers a cleanly designed, easy-to-comprehend interface. Similar to an e-mail client interface, if offers a row of easily identifiable buttons and two panes: One displays a directory tree of secure folders you create, the other lists the files that reside within the selected folder.

Although installation required us to reboot our system, this app performed well in our tests. We liked that it prompted us through each step for creating a secure folder and configuring a password and encryption key. This ease of use carried over to actually encrypting files on the fly--we simply had to save an open file to the designated secure folder to encrypt the file. This encryption process was quick, and it required no more time than a typical, unencrypted save. We liked that the app allowed us to hide the contents of a secure folder. Once they were hidden and locked, no access was allowed without the password.

The trial period is adequate for determining whether HandyCrypto will be suitable for most users' needs. The price may seem steep to some, but the ease of use will sway others to purchase.
