Hi Emily (and thanks to Barry for jumping in),

I’d just like to confirm what Barry’s saying – the key sharing feature in AxCrypt 2 should improve usability for your scenario, provided the group of users having access to a given file is not too large. But then again, if it’s say 50 persons – just how much security to do you imagine you’ll be getting with a “secret” password shared with 50 people?

The whole point of AxCrypt 2 key sharing is that you *can* share encrypted files with others *without* sharing any passwords. You do not need to give out your password. You just add the authorized viewers to the list of users to share the file key with.

If you try it out, I think you’ll like what you see and find that it’s actually a great improvement over AxCrypt 1 for your situation.
