What are people saying about PowerCryptor Encryption Suite

SFuji Can this program be run from a flashdrive?
Mar 6 2014 at 6:25am Copy Link
serhiy Hi Stanley,

Thank you for your question. You can copy PowerCryptor program files to your flash drive and start the program from there, but it is not designed as fully portable application.
Self-Decrypting .exe files can be opened and decrypted anywhere, without PowerCryptor installed.

FinanceGuy When it comes to security software, not just the encryption algorithms but also their implementation is important. I browsed your website to learn more about your company and its competencies in encryption software. Unfortunately, I did not find any information about you whatsoever. I also could not locate any contact information. The domain "" was just registered in December 2013 and is registered to an address in the Seychelles. Does this mean the software has just been around for 3 months?

Personally, I am not comfortable purchasing encryption software from an anonymous vendor. As a suggestion, to build credibility, you might want to include some more information about yourself.

Good luck!

Chris @ Flo I went to their site and found a contact form to contact them as well as a About page. Quote from their site: "ABOUT US PowerCryptor Software is a small company specializing in security products. Users of our software range from home-users to business and government organizations including banks and other financial institutions, IT software and hardware companies and a wide spectrum of small and large businesses.

It also says this: 256-BIT AES ENCRYPTION Support Page:
Mar 9 2014 at 12:15am Copy Link
FinanceGuy @ Chris

Yes, I did see this page, but it's very generic information. Who are all of these clients they claim to have? Who is the company and what is their experience in implementing encryption algorithms?

On that page they also speak about "the past years". It confuses me that their domain is barely 3 months old. It could absolutely be that there is an explanation for this, for example that their product was sold by a parent company before. However, this information is not given. No contact information besides a contact form.

It is not my intention to talk this vendor or the product down. I wrote this as information for others, so that they can decide if they can accept these things or not. That's all. :)

JL Hi serhiy,

I was looking for some information about your product and I found the following:
Products / Silent Keylogger
Privacy Policy (Keylack Software)

Is Keylack Software the developer of PowerCryptor Encryption Suite?
Does Keylack Software have any relation with KRyLack Software?
Mar 9 2014 at 10:08am Copy Link
serhiy Hi JL,
We have partnered with Keylack Software to offer more security-related products to our customers.
PowerCryptor Software - Mar 9 2014 at 10:40am Copy Link
Mark Johnson I see that Serhiy Horobets owns Kyrlack Software ( ) and Keylack Software ( ) in addition to PowerCryptor. Both of the other domains have as their main products tools to decrypt passwords from files generated by tools like PowerCryptor. Is it possible to use PowerCryptor to password protect files that cannot be easily decrypted by the other inexpensive products made by the same company?
Mar 9 2014 at 10:41am Copy Link
serhiy Hi Mark,
RAR and ZIP archives use weak encryption algorithms that can be cracked. That’s why we have developed PowerCryptor to protect data with advanced encryption methods, including industry standard AES 256 bit.
PowerCryptor Software - Mar 9 2014 at 10:47am Copy Link
Mark Johnson Hi, Serhiy.
The free zip product 7-zip offers "Strong AES-256 encryption in 7z and ZIP formats" (per the home page).
The homepage of winzip ( states "Protect files with banking-level AES encryption". On the winzip website on the features page is stated, "Protect your files from unauthorized access by applying banking-level security with FIPS-197 certified 128 or 256-bit AES encryption.".
The info page for the Winrar product ( states, "WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits."

Every zip or rar product that I look at states that it has 128-bit or 256-bit AES encryption.
Can you explain your statement about the other products using weak encryption a little more please?

Also.... I downloaded the product to give it a try.
I placed some files in a folder on the desktop.
I right-clicked on each of the files individually, chose Powercryptor - encrypt, and gave each file a password. The files each got a new lock icon to replace the regular icon, and .pcr was added to the filename as the new extension.
I then tried double-clicking each file. What I was expecting to see was a dialog asking for the password, and then after the password was entered for the file to open in the associated program. I also expected after closing the file in the program for the encrypted file to still be in the original location, and no decrypted copy of the original file to be left on the disk.

Double-clicking on an encrypted file produced mixed results. After entering the password, the file did open in the associated program about 50% of the time. 100% of the time (whether the file opened or not) there was a dialog that opened which stated, "Unable to open encrypted file." The error dialog had the PowerCryptor icon, and Process Explorer identified the dialog as belonging to PowerCryptor.
The thing that bothered me most was that whether or not the file successfully opened in the associated program, after closing the file I looked on the hard drive for the decrypted copy that PowerCryptor passed along to the associated program. In 100% of those tests, a fully decrypted copy of the file was found in the Windows Temp folder.

Why is a fully decrypted copy of the file left in the Windows temp folder?

Sputnik When we open up PowerCryptor and click on "Find Encrypted", a window appears so to allow us to choose the location to scan.

We may select any partition we want but we cannot choose the entire computer itself.

So if we want to scan the entire computer we will be obliged to repeat the whole process of clicking on "Find Encrypted" and select a specific partition. All the partitions will need to be scanned individually like this.

Would it be possible to add the possibility to scan the whole computer at once so it would be faster to scan every place on the computer ?

Peter Laszlo I like the software BUT it seem to have problems with folder names where European language characters are used such as u,U,O,Ö,Ú.

Secondly, it shows the file names.
The folder has a standard icon, and I cannot seem to be able to securet the folder
so that it cannot be opened without a password.

Noggin The Nog I like it too.

When a file is encrypted, is it overwritten or deleted, and, if it is deleted, is it deleted securely?

Likewise, when an encrypted file is viewed via the View File function, is a decrypted temporary file created, and, if so, what happens to the temporary file when the file is closed? Is it securely deleted?

I am finding that functions in the context menu in windows explorer are not working.

This program would be considerably augmented if there were added to it a context menu for the recycle bin for secure deletion of the contents thereof - including not only the pointers in the bin but also the file data that they point to (i.e. the data left on the disc after sending something to the recycle bin, to the extent that it has not already been overwritten). And having done that, some of us may also find it useful to be able to schedule the deletion or write a batch file for it.

CFGuy @PowerCryptor Team - Please help me understand - if I use a program such as "PaperPort" document management program to scan in documents to be saved as PDF files, could I set it up to "automatically" encrypt all scanner documents scanned in "Paperport". If so, once scanned and encrypted, would that encrypted PDF file later be able to be opened and viewed within the PaperPort document management program? Also, would others on my home network (assuming I purchased user licenses for them, as well) then be able to open this "encrypted" PDF document within their version of PaperPort document management program and view it, as well (without having to enter password, etc. ... ? Thanks. -Cfguy

Richard User I bought this even though no answers were provided here in this section.
(Update: I turned on "older replies" and see that was true yesterday and today.)
I had been looking for something exactly like this. Price was great.
The down load links are all non-responsive, even the one in my receipt email.
It only refers back to the LINK here -- which was ALREADY proven to be not

Side notes:
I have no relation to the Company.
Some of the questions here can be answered by digging a little.
It is a perpetual license. ALL updates and upgrades seem to be free for life.
ONE USER can install on their own multiple machines. (A good "buying point" for me.)
Can be used personal OR in a company. (Mine is personal so I did not check the other part too close.)

My replies are what I see here and on their Company WEB site.
I have no relation to the Company, other than as a frustrated user. (So far.)
This was only posted here as I do not use Twitter

riad af Hello.

1. Just downloaded the free version to try. Pdf, word, jpg, exe files where encrypted. BUT: mp4 file although the software indicates encryption completed the mp4 file does not have the lock icon and it can be opened. What is the reason ?

2. I use Cryptomator which indicates that it is open source and the it is audited. Is PowerCryptor publicly audited ?

3. I appreciate the work method of the program, not using special vaults, so individual files are easier to upload to cloud storage. I hope that the answer of the previous questions will support my intention of purchasing the software.

Thanks in advance

Thanks in advance.

BitsDuJour Admin - Apr 14 2021 at 3:38am Copy Link
serhiy We are sorry for the delay in responding to you.

There are no limitations on supported file types. The reason for this issue could be enabled write-protection for this file or there is not enough free disk space.

PowerCryptor is not an open-source software. We use 256-bit AES encryption which is the industry standard for data protection.

Yes, PowerCryptor is supported and updated. It can be run on the latest version of Windows 10 OS, including version 20H2. The next major update is being tested and is planned to be released next month. All updates and upgrades are free to registered users

Michael Crosson In a comment above, the author wrote: "RAR and ZIP archives use weak encryption algorithms that can be cracked." -- This is patently false. From the WinRAR website: "WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 256 bits." From the WinZip website: "Secure sensitive data with strong, FIPS-197 certified AES encryption (128- and 256-bit). FIPS 140-2 encryption, both at rest and during exchange on a properly configured computer. Set to FIPS 140-2 compliance, even if Windows OS is not in FIPS 140-2 mode." I will not purchase software from a vendor who posts this type of misinformation in order to push their product. PASS

bvssunnydale The home site seems very minimal (high school project?), there are no testimonials or reviews, it's unclear whether this can encrypt anything dragged into entire folders (the easiest way). It's impossible to tell if this is a Russian or Chinese or even real company. Apparently (as the '5 hours ago' question suggests) you don't like to answer questions either (I do wish BitsDuJour would vet this companies). Too much mystery to feel safe for me.

gpardo7 To those who are interested.

I bought a license a while ago and have been checking it out.
The software has not been updated since 2018 –and probably never will– but it does what it is meant to do: encrypt files. Drag 'n drop is supported and you can edit files without unencrypt them (open-edit-close). It also features a useful key generator.
You won't get anything like that for that price anywhere else. The closest alternative is Axcrypt but runs on a suscription license.
Hope that helps.
