The Fort program is running in the background, how do I enter my serial number?

I tried to activate Fort but Fort does not appear in the context menu on any folder I right click on.
It appears to be installed on my Windows 10 64 bit system since there is a Fort directory in the program files folder.
Is any body else having this problem?

Please extend the install by deadline.

Win 10 folks,

I got this to install. I went and downloaded the software from the company's website and applied the "Giveaway" key. The file I downloaded from the company is only 2 mb. Giveaway's key is over 6 mb.

I feel like this website is up to something dishonest. What is that extra 4 mb there for? Fort does seem like a great product though.

Ziggy,
Please, before accusing somebody of dishonesty do a modicum of research.
The extra size is because of the extra code GOTD applies so that it can only be used from the site on the same date.
The actual giveaway code is less than 30 bytes.

What does "time limited offer" mean? If you try the program for the designated time and the program stops working, can you still decrypt a file that was encrypted during the time limited offer?

Reply   |   Comment by Johnant  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Johnant,

Time limited offer means that you can now get full version of Fort for free via this site. Even if you just install a trial version of Fort (from https://cryptoextension.eu) you can decrypt files even after the trial expires.

7-Zip includes free AES 256-bit encryption as well as other encr. options. Just right-click on any file or folder and select 7-Zip / Add to archive. When the Add-to-archive dialog box opens, type in a password for the file and choose the type of encryption from the little drop-down menu. Click OK and you now have a 256-bit encrypted file. If the encrypted file is intended to be the only copy then don't forget to shred/erase the original!

"Giveaway of the day — Fort - File encryption for Windows 2.0" ???

It is good that we can still find support for Windows 2; that was released in 1987. Thank you but I'll stick with [free] Vera Crypt.

To my mind the " Protect against keyloggers" is a very important aspect of the program.
Not much point in having excellent encryption and password if somebody can capture the password.
This should be remembered for password managers also!|

In the past anti-key loggers have stopped downloads from this site from installing in my experience.

Veracrypt is vastly more useful than this, costs nothing, and has been around a long time. https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/

And one day when you can not boot into your system, all those encrypted files are gone. Some backup software do partial job and not all of the files are backed up due to end of file markers missing or not recognized characters in the files. It happened to me with kryptel and many other off the shelf software.
Just try any recovery software on encrypted files and or folders and see what happens, in my case they all were lost forever or just a small part recovered.
Best way to hide and encrypt is a vault, the rest can create backup or restore problems in the future.

cennett,

Any encrypted files on your hard drive should be backed up as non crypted files on a external hard drive.

Working on Windows 10 64bit.
What I like, this software is simple and light, can encrypt a single file so you can upload it to anywhere, very helpful for me because I'm using cloud backup often.

But honestly I don't trust this software yet.
When I looking their site, the site just force user to buy or download, and only marketing language, no important information such as documentation and troubleshooting.

But this software is new comer and still growing up, I think I'll like it in the future :)

Btw, I want buy it using that 50% discount, but there's no option to put that code on Fort Store!

Kris,

There's in an option to put the coupon code. You just need to go bit further in the purchasing process.

Documentation is being worked on and there will be much more documentation in the (near) future. Thanks for your feedback. If you have more questions, please do contact us support@cryptoextension.eu we are happy to help.

Hey guys The title gore for this product made do a double take. I thought the product was for a defunct OS of Windows DOS 2.0 I would at least change the title to FORT 2.0- file encryption for windows How many takers did you have for the DOS OS? Although I would like to have a good encryption program That title was so glaringly bad that I just am not going to trust this program to do anything correctly. This one I'm going to skip completely. They have a long way to go with a programs I would entrust my file security with. I just wouldn't buy any program for Windows 2.0 hell I have a problem with Windows 8.0 - 10 I don't trust them at all; with the backdoors put in for the government.

nomadss1,

If you take a look our official homepage it clearly says File encryption for Windows. On this giveawayoftheday -page there is simply an typing error which is not really products fault.

Of course feel free to find a program that suits your needs. Choice is good.

Niko Rosvall, you misunderstand nomadaa1, they mean your programs name looks like a description not a name, It looks like its targeted AT the long defunct Windows 2.0 not Windows Vista and above and the program version is 2.0!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-5)

TK,

The program name is Fort. Or Fort file encryption for Windows.

It's gotd adding that 2.0, nothing to do with Fort.

Downloaded & installed. Wen I right click on a file I see no reference to Fort. Installed on W10.

I got the same result after installation

DC, George

What antivirus program you're using? At least macafee have a problem which prevents Fort from installing correctly. I've already contacted macafee about the issue.

Me too. I keep getting this window that wants to install some bloatware called, "Software Informer."

Ziggy, I think software informer is from Giveawayoftheday

Does not seem to install properly in Win 7 x64 HP. Tried several times, but the program does not install, and is not listed in the start menu or anywhere else. Yes, I turned off the antivirus, and yes, I closed Explorer as instructed by the installation, and yes, I rebooted my computer. Tried the process twice. Windows does show the program listed as installed in Control Panel, but it is not evident anywhere, including as a right-click for the Explorer options on a file or folder. The product's web site offers little actual guidance on the operation of the product, nor debugging installations. Disappointing, but perhaps my feedback is helpful to the developer.

From AnAceBuyer again: correction: the problem was on my Win 10 x64 computer, not my Win 7.

Reply   |   Comment by AnAceBuyer  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

AnAceBuyer,

What antivirus you have on your windows 10 computer? There are four or five users that I know who had the same problem and it was macafee antivirus causing the problem.

Free and open source (!) alternative: Axcrypt from Svante Seleborg. AxCrypt use 128bit AES key and keyfile as well. Also has a self-decrypting package ( like self-decompressing archive) feature. 128 is still strong enough if combined with keyfile and long phase phrase. In this case we don't know is the real 256 bit key encryption. Not open source cryptography is like a buy a pig in a poke.

Reply   |   Comment by Patryk  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Patryk, Axcrypt is also proved as portable... I prefer to keep the encryper with the data and be able to open it on any PC.... No incentive to buy something that is not a flexable... Or is the Gotd release portable and I didn't spot that?

Reply   |   Comment by Mememe  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Patryk,

Fort source code is available for auditing. Fort will also have self extracting package available in the near future as well several other features such as using an usb stick as a key.

Reply   |   Comment by Niko Rosvall  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Patryk: Agreed. AxCrypt works well, and is very user-friendly to those who may've earlier encountered TrueCrypt and thought it too complex or even VeraCrypt. Just so long as anyone interested in AxCrypt makes sure they use the developer's latest website, and not its predecessor, or even SourceForge for that matter, all should be well, otherwise there's the risk of a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) in the form of OpenCandy, bundled -- sometimes -- with pre-2.0 versions.

Unfortunately True Crypt is not longer supported but many still use it. I have moved on to Vera Crypt as an excellent replacement for True.

I have this through one of the Giveaway from different site.
It doesn't run in Winxp which was disappointing but it runs in Win7 and after.
This is good for file encryption, but can't make an exe file that require a password to decrypt. Any ways i am keeping it as it runs in Win7.
But there are great many freeware to choose from.
True crypt (which runs on both Winxp and 7)
Vera crypt '' '' ''
