Editors' Review

Choosing ease of use over options, xTyFileCrypter encrypts files quickly. Operation of the program is simple; right-click a folder or file in Windows Explorer and choose Encrypt from the contextual xTyFileCrypter menu. You also can choose to change the password, called a Key in the program, from the Encrypt menu. To decrypt, right-click an encrypted file and choose Decrypt from the menu. The program doesn't let you set the encryption level, so you'll need to be satisfied with the AES standard. This download has some oddities. First, it doesn't install a Start menu program group, so the only program access is via the right-click menu. Second, you set your initial password from the installer file, requiring you to launch the EXE again, after installation. We would prefer to see a wizard launch after installation, prompting you to set an initial password, and a Start menu program group where you can set passwords. We like that the program gets rid of the original file when you encrypt it, but we find it disturbing that the password stayed on our computer, so we didn't have to re-enter it to decrypt our test files. This method means that encrypted files sent off your computer will be secure, but files on your computer can easily be decrypted. xTyFileCrypter also can encrypt Web pages so they can only be read using a password and a special plug-in for Internet Explorer. Although we like how quickly and easily it works, xTyFileCrypter could be improved by adding a program group and settings to require a password for decrypting all files.

It does well what it is supposed to do: encrypt/decrypt, zip/unzip. Good, good.

Our health agencies have been using this program to send HIPAA protected data over the internet via email. It is very easy to use and turn out to a perfect fit. We had been looking a program like this for a long time before we found this one.....

This is the encryption program that I am using everyday to send and receive sensitive data between my clients and my location.

It is so easy to use and working like a charm. It does everything I need.
