Encrypto is a free, easy-to-use app that lets you encrypt files with AES-256 encryption and then send them to friends or coworkers. It works on both Mac and Windows, so you can send encrypted files without worrying whether the other person can open it or not. Protect Files with AES-256 Encryption Take any file or folder and add AES-256 encryption to it. Let Encrypto give you peace of mind when it comes to the security of your files when sending them. Send Password Hints Instead of relaying a password, include a unique, embedded password hint that only the recipient would be able to decipher. Send Files Using OS X Sharing Share encrypted files via Mail, AirDrop, or Messages, or even share them with third-party apps like Dropbox. However you usually share, Encrypto has you covered. Or Save Them to Disk With Encrypto, you can encrypt your files even if you don’t need to send them. You know, for file security on your hard drive. Just put your file through Encrypto and boom — it’s protected. Encrypt and Decrypt on Both Mac and Windows Share files with friends no matter their OS. You use a Mac, your friend uses Windows — you both can encrypt and send files to each other with Encrypto.

  • Crashes.

    The only thing this app does is open, crash, open, crash, open, crash. Freeze system. Crash system. Crash again. It does not actually work.
  • Fantastic App!

    App crashes often. Also, it appears the developers thought it would be neato opt for a long encryption animation, vs allowing the app to encrypt quickly as it naturally would. I think they want to give the silly illusion that it takes a lot of time to encrypt a file that is less than 1k. My suggestion to the developers would be, animations are cool and stuff, but kill the animation as soon as the file is encrypted. Don't try to make it look like it's taking time when it isn't. Also, please address the crashing issue - BIG SUR 11.1 (brand new Macbook M1)
  • Needs to be rebuilt for M1 (ARM support)

    I love the design of the app, I love the simplicity, and I love the price. There are just a couple of things, docking one star for each. First, the app works half the time on the M1 Mac, and it crashes the other half of the time. When it is working, it is the best app on the App Store for what it does! But I can't risk losing my data when it decides to never work again. The other issue I have is that I would love to have a "shred original file" method like in Crypt3. I would love to solely use this app, as Crypt3 has not been updated in 8 years, but I can't deal with the crashing.

    i fluid and well made program, self explanatory about how to use it.
  • Keeps shutting down

    By RickNam70
    I have used Encrypto for several years and it performed flawlessly. Unfortunately, today it kept shutting down when I tried to use it. I uninstalled the app and re-installed it several times . Same result. It appears to be completely unstable on my iMac. Too bad as it was a great app.
