    Hello!

    Cloud Storage Awareness is really just about detecting installed cloud services, creating a “My AxCrypt” folder and then designating the created folder as ‘Secured’. Since all users have a 30-day trial Premium, this does not have that much impact. However, the feature is really useful only when the folder is Secured, i.e. monitored for new files to encrypt. The Secured Folder feature is also a Premium feature.

    Sorry, no they cannot co-exist since at most one application can be associated with an extension (.axx).

    However, you can download and run a standalone ‘portable’ version of AxCrypt 2. If you use it to encrypt new files, the old version cannot decrypt them though.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your input! This is actually an interesting idea. We’ll need to think a little bit about how this would work in detail, and what security issues it raises.

    It won’t make into the first release, but we’re not stopping development then! We’ll be continuing to push continuous releases just like we’re doing with the beta phase. It will not be a case of a release-a-year or something like that.

    Once again, thank you, we can do something with this.

    Best regards,

    Hello,

    Thank you for asking!

    Actually, AxCrypt 1.x also worked like this, but it was optional. There are two checkboxes “Remember this passphrase for decryption” and “Remember this passphrase for encryption” in AxCrypt 1.x that corresponds more or less to the way AxCrypt 2 works.

    We’re trying to make it even easier to use, and with less risk of mistyping and thus perhaps not being able to open files. That’s why we’ve developed the “sign in” model, which is also a commonly used metaphor for many softwares and services, and thus easy to understand for most users.

    The “sign in” model to AxCrypt also makes it possible for us to really verify that you have typed the correct password, and when you encrypt files, there is thus no risk that you happened to make a mistake this time.

    Best regards,

    Hello!

    There is no default password with AxCrypt. Each user sets his or her own passwords, we have no defaults, no control and no knowledge of what passwords are used.

    Thank you, quite right. We actually noted that at a meeting yesterday, so it’ll be updated to correctly reflect the situation.

    Yes, there. Its very confusing as this http://www.axcrypt.net/documentation/requirements/
    (at the bottom part) says that there are previews available for iOS and OSX

    Hello,

    The iOS version is not available right now, but we’re actively looking for contractors to do the UI for an AxCrypt 2 app based on the AxCrypt 2 code base.

    When you say the home page, do you mean http://www.axcxrypt.net/ which is the new site for AxCrypt ?

    Hello,

    Just like with an application that works with a specific kind of file, you need a program installed to work with those files. Sometimes this kind of program is preinstalled by the manufacturer, like PDF-viewers usually are for example.

    So, yes, you will always need to install some version of AxCrypt on the device in question. This is fundamental to how things work. If we can get Apple, Google and Microsoft to preinstall AxCrypt that will be great, but I fear this is will take some time ;-)

    Hello,

    Can you explain a little more just what part of the premium functionality you’d like to have optional?

    Hello,

    Thank you so much for your input! Some quick thoughts in response.

    1 – System notification when minimized. It’s a standard procedure, however, it should probably only be done the first time, not every time. We’ll fix that. Thanks!

    2 – The close button (X) minimized instead of closes. Also standard for this type of application. You can always really close it by using File | Exit. We’ll also be adding a context menu to the minimized version where you can really close it.

    3 – Idle time close. Yes, it’s a relatively frequently requested feature. Coming soon!

    Once again, thanks!

    Hello!

    Thank you for reporting this issue. Of course you are right, it is a bug, and we have addressed this issue just recently. Please update your software and let us know if it’s still a problem.

    Once again, thank you!

    in reply to: Icons #1904

    Hello!

    I am glad you like AxCrypt. Implementing Icon Overlays as the technique is called is unfortunately a bit tricky, and also it works so-so. I’ve seen many implementations by very good developers, and it just doesn’t work that well. It’s also quite complicated for us, since we’re actually changing the extension of the files. I.e. – we need to retrieve the originally associated icon, then produce the overlay version, and finally supply Windows with it.

    In version 2, we might do this kind of thing inside the desktop application, while not doing it in the Windows Explorer extension.

    Thank you for your input, keep it coming!

    Best Regards,

    Svante & The AxCrypt Team
