AxCrypt integrates seamlessly with Windows to compress, encrypt, decrypt, store, send and work with individual files.

In order to use AxCrypt you will need to create an account.


Strong encryption

A key length of 128 bits is sufficient in most cases, except where rules and regulations or personal preference stipulate a higher level. AxCrypt Premium offers 256-bit encryption which is the strongest standardized encryption available, and is used for secret and top secret information all over the world.

Easy to work with

Keeping your files secured should not be difficult and AxCrypt makes it easier than ever to do so. Open, edit and share a secured file directly with double-click.

Cloud storage awareness

AxCrypt will automatically find what Cloud Storage services are installed on your computer and create an AxCrypt folder there. We make it easy for you to automatically view and keep the files secured on these folders.


Sharing a secured file is made directly from the AxCrypt software by choosing the secured file, click the share button and simply select the team member you want to share it to. The recipient just needs a free AxCrypt ID and will be automatically invited via email if necessary. The invitation email contains instructions on how to view and edit the file.

Password management

You can store all your passwords and codes online in a secure manner using the password management feature.

Secured folders

AxCrypt secures files, individually. However, you can designate folders as 'secured'. The folders will be monitored for new files, and AxCrypt will secure all new files with a single click, or when you sign out.

You can also select multiple files, including all files in a folder, to be secured in a single operation. They still remain individual files, and the folder itself is not secured, just the files in it.


AxCrypt speaks English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Russian and more to come.
