Editors' Review

This utility provides basic encrypting features for your files and folders, but we have a few complaints. AMPLock's interface is straightforward and easy to operate. To encrypt data, you simply browse your computer for files or folders, select the path for saving the encrypted file, and hit the Encrypt button. You can use a password to protect encrypted files, and you have the option to delete the original file after encryption. In our tests, AMPLock quickly encrypted files, though we wish it offered more encryption algorithms. It also features a capability to share encrypted data through your default e-mail client, but it forces the recipient to have the program installed on her computer. Another concern is that you must send your contact information to another AMPLock user to enable you to receive encrypted files using the separate module called AMPKey; this seems like a security flaw for a program that's supposed to keep data secure. Overall, if you're looking for a comprehensive file-encrypting tool, you should look for a more full-featured program.
