Hello AlGee,

The Legacy AxCrypt 1.x is fully working but unmaintained except for tooling and library upgrades etc. So, No need to worry about the latest versions of AxCrypt 1.x. There will be just an upgrade of tooling and nothing changed in the core/functionalities. It is a stable version too. You can download the AxCrypt legacy versions here – https://www.axcrypt.net/support/legacy-downloads/ .

Most installers and executables are digitally signed with Authenticode by ‘Axantum Software AB’ or ‘AxCrypt AB’. Verify the signature after downloading by right-clicking the file and select ‘Properties | Digital Signatures’. Then double-click on the signature and confirm that ‘This digital signature is OK’ is shown.

We always recommend users, use AxCrypt 2.x which is the latest version of AxCrypt.
