Xecrets File Ez [Beta] is an easy to use free personal desktop application available for Windows, macOS and Linux. It will encrypt any file to a new file, wiping the original and as a premium feature also allowing you to work with encrypted files almost as easily as before encrypting them. It is 100% compatible with AxCrypt, in fact it is based on the exact same code, but is less complex and is entirely focused on delivering the core functionality needed without the bells and whistles and having no requirement for server or Internet access, it works entirely locally on your computer. For personal daily use it's a great free alternative to AxCrypt!
While the free version is sufficient for many needs, a premium subscription unlocks a number of features that make working with files more convenient and add additional capabilities.
Encrypt, decrypt or open files for editing and re-encryption with a click.
When finished with editing an encrypted file, close the editing application and re-encrypt with click (premium).
Support for intelligent drag'n'drop (Windows only) or copy/paste operations.
All features are directly found as quick access buttons and in regular menus. Drag'n'drop (Windows only), and copy/paste also works.
