Editors' review

This freeware file encryption tool is effective but suffers from error checking problems. WEncrypt's basic button and box interface fits with the program's simple approach. The program is easy to operate, but everyone would benefit from the author's single page program explanation.

WEncrypt uses single key encryption. You can click a box to create a random 150-character key or enter a phrase to generate the key. Testers complained the app would hang if the pass phrase was too short. Unlike dual-key encryption, you must send the key to the encrypted file's recipient. The program adds a button to place the key on a single line to copy it for safekeeping. Selecting the file to encrypt, and choosing the destination file name takes a couple of button presses and uses the standard file browser. The process is repeated to decrypt a sent file. The app fails completely if the encrypted file has been altered, though, and it doesn't handle this issue well.

WEncrypt handles any file type, but encryption speed is set to near 1MB per minute. The app is easy enough for novice users, but useful for experienced users needing strong encryption.
