Xecrets File Ez [Beta] is our free and premium software that will protect your secrets and keep them safe from exposure. Encrypt with maximum strength AES-256 state of the art open source software. View and edit with ease. It works the same on macOS, Linux and Windows.
It's 100% compatible with AxCrypt and is a great free or low-cost premium alternative to AxCrypt.
We have been doing this for over 20 years, in open source and without any known vulnerabilities.
It's perfect for the non-technical desktop user who prefers an easy and simple graphical user interface to professional and secure cryptography as well as for developers looking to integrate file encryption into their own software or their organizations' automated processes using the command line or a software development kit for .NET.
Our file encryption works by taking your files, one by one at your discrection, transforming them into new files with a new file extension and securely wiping and deleting the original. Once encrypted, the files can be safely moved, copied, sent and stored anywhere, even in the cloud. The encryption always follows the file regardless of its location.
With our premium features it remains easy to work with encrypted files, automatically temporarily decrypting them to edit, read, listen or view them with the default application and securely re-encrypting them and wiping the temporary afterwards.
The software works entirely locally on your own device. It never uses an Internet connection, not even for update checks! This may mean a little more work for you, but you know it's for a good cause!
There are absolutely no servers used by the software that may be unavailable, taken down or hacked. You are always working off-line with Xecrets File Ez [Beta] and Xecrets File Command Line [Beta], and that's how we think it should be.
If you're familiar with AxCrypt, you'll know that it has a long history of success in it's field. You'll find that our version is a great alternative to AxCrypt.
