One of the best apps for protecting files until they change the way it works. Now you have a "master pass" for all files, where previously you could encrypted different files with different passwords.

AxCrypt is now available for macOS on the AxCrypt download page. No need for an alternative ;-)


No a replacement is definitely needed now that basic features like secure deletion of a file is no longer a simple 2 click operation. But instead now involves a monthly payment and the opening of a program with a clunky not very intuitive UI.
