Thank you for your input!
I understand that your main issue with AxCrypt is our complexity password requirements. The thing is, we we know from experience that without this many will use passwords that are simply too poor. These users will then live in the false belief that AxCrypt offers any protection, which in this case it doesn’t. AxCrypt is about providing real security within the bounds we specify, not just the warm fuzzy feeling of thinking you’re secure.
Also, we’re promoting a model where you only use one password, and this does make it more worthwhile to learn that strong password by rote. There’s also a password manager included with AxCrypt.
To assist, we have a password generator that may help you generate memorable but strong passwords. Try it out at https://www.axcrypt.net/password-generator/ .
