This was the reply on an App Store review: “You’re partially right. The iOS app is not free, it is part of the extended Premium subscription which includes other other additional features and server based capabilities. The desktop app can be used both free and with Premium features enabled. We’ve updated the description to clarify this further.”
As far as i remember, i got a message saying “your trial is about to expire” so that’s why i uninstalled and got Boxcryptor instead (though it’s purpose is different).April 4, 2017 at 12:31 #5900
Be careful with Boxcryptor; I’ve used it before and lost my data.
Boxcryptor stores indexing files in the cloud; if those get destroyed or deleted then you’ll lose your data.April 4, 2017 at 13:48 #5901
Okay.. can you also answer my question?April 4, 2017 at 15:01 #5903
FYI – AxCrypt does not work like that at all. We do store some things our servers (specifically an AxCrypt-encrypted backup of your private key), but these are only for *convenience*. You can always decrypt your files if you have the file, AxCrypt software, and know the original password in effect of the time of encryption. You do not need any access to our servers, Internet or anything else.April 4, 2017 at 15:04 #5904
Sorry, I did not realize the subject of the post was a question, since the quote you posted answers it I thought.
AxCrypt is free as it is, but you can subscribe to Premium which gives you additional functions and features. See https://www.axcrypt.net/pricing/ .March 4, 2018 at 06:06 #9741
I signed up for the premium trial period. What happens when it’s over and I do not want to subscribe since the free version is all I really need. Will it me me do that? Do I ave to re-isntal the software?March 4, 2018 at 18:12 #9746
The same response as before is still valid:

- I am unable to use AxCrypt for free. When I try to login on my IPhone I get a dialogue box saying that I need to upgrade to premium to use the app. What should I do?
Hello Gene ,
Sorry to say, AxCrypt mobile app will not work without premium subscription.
But we can use the limited features of AxCrypt windows desktop app with free subscription.
For AxCrypt mobile apps, AxCrypt Premium Subscription required.December 12, 2019 at 11:28 #14855
I’m not sure if a free service can be trustworthy. If you want a quality you have to pay for it. At work we use Axcrypt, as it has a business plan, but I have my personal computer encrypted with Nordlocker: https://nordlocker.com/download/December 12, 2019 at 13:45 #14857
AxCrypt free version is trustworthy.AxCrypt will use the subscription level to increase the level of security.
AxCrypt is free as it is, but you can subscribe to Premium/Business which gives you additional functions and features. See https://www.axcrypt.net/pricing/.
Still, so many users are using the AxCryt free version.
