Advanced file encryption. Made effortless.
Easy as drag-and-drop. Encrypt and decrypt files simply by dragging them onto the Algebraic window or its Dock icon.
Cutting edge cryptography. Strong modern encryption based on XChaCha and Argon2id, and always secure by default. Docs
Finder, meet Algebraic. Encrypt and decrypt files directly from Finder menus, or use shortcuts ⇧⌘E and ⇧⌘Y. Docs
Advanced file format. The encrypted file format is designed for integrity, performance, & backwards compatibility. Specification
Progress windows & notifications. Follow longer operations with smooth progress estimates and native system notifications.
Command line powers. New The included ax(1) command complements Algebraic with programming and automation productivity.
Encrypt nearly every thing. Encrypt any kind of file—movies, documents, images, archives, binaries—and entire folders recursively.
Robust error handling. Know reliably if encryption or decryption fails unexpectedly, along with the precise reasons why.
Unparalleled detail. Preserve file attributes, xattrs, and ACLs. Even encrypt file and directory names, and fuzz file sizes.
