Q:
What services I can share the file with?
A: You can use any application that supports file sharing or file uploading. Some of them are listed in and integrate seamlessly with Encrypto, while others may require you to first save the file to disk before sharing.
Q:
What do I do if I can’t remember my password?
A: Unfortunately, if you forget your password, the encrypted data cannot be recovered. There’s no way to decrypt the data without the password.
Q:
Why do I need to set up a password?
A: Password protecting a file ensures that only those with the password will be able to access the file.
Q:
Does Encrypto keep a password backup?
A: No, the password that is used for the encryption is not saved anywhere. That’s why you should always remember your password and commit it to memory, otherwise you won’t be able to recover the encrypted file.
Q:
Why is Encrypto taking so long to encrypt my file?
A: The length of Encrypto’s encryption process depends on the size of the file — the bigger the file, the longer the encryption process takes.
Q:
Why does the encrypted file have a different file size than the original one?
A: Encrypto actually compresses the file when it encrypts it, so the size may vary a bit from the original.
Q:
Is there a maximum file size that Encrypto can work with?
A: Encrypto works with files and folders of any size, there are no size limits. However, please note that you might face some limitations set in place by file sharing services when you try to send the file.
Q:
What is Encrypto?
A: Encrypto is a small, yet powerful, app that helps you protect your private data.
Q:
How does Encrypto work?
