AutoKrypt for Mac continuously runs a script in the background, enabling you to automate various tasks such as document encryption and decryption, the moving and archiving of files, as well as monitoring directory activities. It also features several wizards, which automate commonly set-up rules. This premium software performs well, overall, but due to its multiplatform nature, doesn't completely fit in with the rest of the OS.

AutoKrypt for Mac features a cluttered main interface with nested tabs and two toolbars. It requires Java and automatically launches a second process for the scheduling service, placing an additional generic Java icon on the dock. Several step-by-step wizards for setting up things like encryption and password tasks are included, but they are not necessarily easy to access. The biggest drawback, however, is the inability to change your directory when using the built-in folder picker, which means you have to manually type the various addresses. Apart from the features mentioned in the beginning, advanced users can also set up schedules for startup tasks, e-mail notifications, backup settings, and lockdown keys, as well as set a master password for the app.

While certainly not as good as a real native client, AutoKrypt for Mac can assist you if you deal with sensitive information and want your data automatically protected. Getting used to its interface and features will take awhile, but if you like scheduling tasks on your computer, you'll find the time invested in this app, worthwhile. Try it out, because even though it has its flaws, it can be useful.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of AutoKrypt for Mac 10.13.
