Help! I lost the note I kept my local AxCrypt password on and need to decrypt files so I can reset the password to a new old I will save in a password safe this time. Any ideas if I can recover if possible? Thanks, Randy
Unfortunately, if you do not know the password for an AxCrypt-encrypted file you cannot open it, even if you can sign in to the account. This is by design, it’s just this situation that AxCrypt is made for and it works like this even if you actually are the original owner of the file.
Please note: AxCrypt is a file encryption software with no backdoor. That means, Nobody can decrypt the encrypted files without the file password used in the file encryption. This is the way the AxCrypt app was designed.
