PC-Encrypt provides simple, strong, file and folder security for Windows 95/98/ME/XP/NT/2000, without the need for any adapters, plug-ins, or accessory software. The free version of PC-Encrypt never expires, and will decrypt all strengths, but restricts the encrypt strength to passwords of 7 characters (56 bits). Purchase in North America enables exceptionally strong passwords up to 56 characters (448 bits), and 16 characters (128 bits) Internationally.

Installation of PC-Encrypt results in the desktop icon appearing, plus an entry in the “Start” menu as well as the “Start/Programs” menu. You and the intended recipient(s) must share a secret password, which can be exchanged via telephone etc, or can be generated and securely exchanged via our free Key-Exchange service.

To secure files or folders, start the PC-Encrypt application or employ other methods described below. Select the password either from the associated Password Book by clicking “Password Book”, or manually type in your chosen password.

The recipient does not require PC-Encrypt if you employ the “Create one-way file” option in step 2. Alternatively, it is usually more convenient for the recipient to download the PC-Encrypt software
