Editors' review



Despite a pretty interface, we weren't won over by this limited encryption tool. For some of our testers, KaKa File Encryption served up an error on first launch. The interface appeared after the message was cleared, but it wasn't a good first impression.

You don't need to install this executable; simply launch it when you want to use it. The interface is attractive and simple with a window for displaying selected files, a field to enter a password, and three command buttons: Add Files, Encrypt, and Close. The tiny Help file merely lists what the program offers, but the process is so simple, most should be able to jump right in and get started. Again, however, some testers received another error message when encrypting files. And although the publisher touts the program's four encryption algorithms, there isn't a way to choose one. Once the file is encrypted, its icon is replaced with a new one in the shape of a lock. The extension remains the same, though. For the problems that we encountered setting up the encrypted file, locked files were accessed without issue with the password.

This is a field packed with options, and an attractive interface isn't enough to save this flawed entry.

    "This software does not work as advertised."

    October 08, 2013   |   By kwmckee

    Version: KaKa File Encryption 1.30

    Pros

    Relatively easy to use except for the fact that it doesn't work...

    Cons

    The software does not keep files locked. Often I see files that were locked that are no longer locked for no apparent reason. Folders that were hidden are not really hidden. Even when they are hidden at first, they appear, i.e., they are no longer hidden later. The locked files cannot be backup up (in my case using Norton Ghost). In fact, this also causes certain file to unlock or drop from sight. The advertised ability to use this with USBs does not work - I do not want to encrypt on the USB, just looked at encrypted files as the Kakasoft website says I can do. I cannot get any support from Kakasoft for upgrading to a new PC where their software will not register because of the old, and no longer used, PC. Their support in general has proven worthless.

    Summary

    Do not buy this software. It does not work as advertised and there is no realistic customer support. I was unable to get my money back from Kakasoft when the product failed to perform.
