VeraCrypt Reviews

Worst place to have your files is, and the support is even worse.

about VeraCrypt ·

I have ran into a major problem where I lost access to the vault I have created. this has caused a great deal of invonvenience. I have tried contacting the developer(s) several times regarding this issue with no response whatsoever. The vaut would not mount. simply put. The issue is discussed online and the workaround solution proposed in forums does not work.

This application is used to keep files secure. If the possibility of losing the files is common enough to be discussed in forums, then that's a huge drawback.

I have been a happy user since the days of TrueCrypt. this application made made me go on a chase of a different encryption method.

  • On Windows, password limit is set to 100 characters, but on Linux is set to 64. If you are going to use VeraCrypt on Windows and Linux, make sure you set your password to 64 characters or less otherwise you will not be able to mount.

Have used it on Windows and Linux systems and have worked flawlessly.
