Editors' reviewThe program encrypts and decrypts plain text but isn't always reliable. With a nice-looking interface, LetEncrypt is easy enough to understand, though it only accepts text entered or inserted into the main window. It differs from similar apps by using numerical and ASCII methods instead of the more common encryption algorithms, though we are glad to find the Help file explaining how these methods actually work. Instead of passwords or keys, the program employs user-specified numerical values to encrypt texts. We appreciate that it imports and exports encryption/decryption settings. It offers to save encrypted and decrypted texts as well. The program converts texts into unreadable characters, but the problem comes when we tried to decipher texts, as it failed to decrypt all the characters. It doesn't work with multiple files, and it also can't encrypt folders. Unfortunately, it can't build self-decrypting files, forcing your recipients to install the program to decrypt. In all fairness, this 15-day trial app works, just not as well as other competitive encryption utilities.
LetEncrypt is a text file encryption tool. It shows you the level of encryption through a security meter. It also allows you to import or export your encryption settings. LetEncrypt offers 2 main systems of encryption--ASCII and Numeric encryption.
