How to Buy


It's quite easy to perform a purchase and install the license, but there are a few manual steps, explained below. The reason for this is that it's an absolute requirement that the software itself does not have the capability or need to connect to the Internet. For your security and peace of mind thus, we must ask you to manually get the license from the payment provider and then copy/paste or drag'n'drop (only Windows) the license to the software. Knowing that our software will never talk to anything over the Internet, we think you'll find this little extra step worth the effort!

This is why we can't have the software just get the license from the server by itself, like many other softwares do. It's a matter of security.

How to buy and install a Xecrets File Ez or Cli license

Follow these simple instructions when doing purchasing your subscription. The actual license is a string of encoded data, a few hundred characters long and can be downloaded as a file or copy/pasted into the software.

Xecrets File Cli

The process is the same as described above for Xecrets File Ez [Beta], except that instead of copy/pasting the license into the application, you download the license in the form of a text file, and then place that text file in the same directory as the Xecrets File Command Line [Beta] executable.

What you're paying for

Xecrets File Ez [Beta] and Xecrets File Command Line [Beta] are licensed differently, and what you are paying for when doing a purchase differs, but the process is similar. See below for details.

About Ez Licensing

You only need to acquire a license to use the premium features of Xecrets File Ez [Beta]. You can always use it for free with basic functionaly, and all license subsriptions starts with a 30 day premium trial period during which you will not be charged.

About Cli Licensing

No license is required for Xecrets File Command Line [Beta], it's licensed under GPL. However, in order to use our prebuilt and tested binaries, we do ask that you get a download subscription, which gives you the right to use our pre-built binary. Without a download subscription valid for the binary and using the premium features for programmatic integration, Xecrets File Command Line [Beta] is limited to encrypt files smaller than 1 MB. You can always get the sources and tools and build your own free of all restrictions.

This option is primarily intended for companies and organizations wanting to integrate encryption and decryption into their automatic processes, and is thus priced a little higher than Xecrets File Ez [Beta] which is targeted at personal use on the desktop.
