Hello Christian,

AxCrypt 2.x does not support different passwords on different files features due to some security reasons. You can check our blog for more information.

There is no need to share passwords in order to send or share files securely with others. AxCrypt has a key sharing feature letting you add recipients by email address, who when they receive the file can open it with their own AxCrypt password.

Key sharing embeds the shared key into the file. The file must thus first be key shared with the recipient, then sent or file shared. Please note that AxCrypt does not share or send the actual file. To see a quick instructional video explaining how to use key sharing, please view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z3KOZD-Yks .

Instead of encrypting with different passwords, You can use AxCrypt key sharing feature to share the encrypted files with more than one other users.

AxCrypt app works without internet also. Internet is required only for fetching the user account(s) and subscription information. Internet is not required for encrypting/decrypting the files.

AxCrypt will allow the users to decrypt the encrypted file with the original password which is used for encryption.

AxCrypt will prompt the user to enter the file password when we decrypt/open the encrypted files which are encrypted other than the sign in password.
