The AxCrypt story
The history of AxCrypt started in 2001 when Svante needed to share confidential data over the Internet and failed to find existing data security solutions for Internet services that were both simple and easy to use for everyone. It was then that he developed and released the first version of AxCrypt and shared it with others for free.
In 2014, AxCrypt had grown to be one of the world’s most popular encryption software with over 20 million downloads worldwide. After two years of hard work AxCrypt 2 was released on April 29, 2016.
