Editors' review

Encrypting files doesn't get any easier than with PixelCryptor, which has the unique approach of using pixel data from selected images to encrypt files and folders.

The professionally designed user interface is extremely easy to navigate. Users are presented with four menu options that are displayed as icons: About, Encode Files, Decode Files, and Help. Clicking the encode button introduced a wizard-like window that walked us through the encryption process. We named our encoded file, added files and folders, selected an image to use for the encryption, and chose a destination for the encrypted file. Users also have the option of deleting the source file once the encryption process is complete, a time-saving step that we appreciated. The encrypted file immediately appeared. Decoding the file was just as easy, and required the original image as the key. Though we don't think most users will even need it, an extensive Help menu is offered to guide you along the way.

Thanks to its ease-of-use, this free encryption program will appeal to those new to file encryption, as well as to more experienced users.

    "Easy to use"

    January 09, 2012   |   By martigae

    Version: PixelCryptor 1.3

    Pros

    You don't have to remember a password, you choose an image in your files and this image is used to crypt your files. To uncrypt them it's the same process.

    Cons

    Nothing wrong to say.

    Summary

    This program is easy to use, you only have to remember which image you use to crypt or uncrypt.
