It Works - WinZip has been around since 1991 and is a staple of modern computing. I purchased this for better zip management and zip encryption. As others have mentioned, encryption isn’t readily apparent, yet the support exists. Open WinZip, and create a new zip file. Click the "Add" button on the tool bar to add files to the archive. From the Finder window that pops up, click the "Encrypt" checkbox at the bottom, then enter in a strong archive password twice. Click the "Zip" button, and you’ve got your encrypted archive. I would recommend going to the WinZip menu > Preferences, and changing the Encryption Method to "AES-256bit," which can only be extracted by WinZip (Encryption Method "Zip 2.0" provides password protection and compatibility for other OS's). I agree with others, there should be an "Encrypt" button on the toolbar. Beyond that, the program works as designed.

Review by Azure07

Worst App. - I don’t normally write reviews. But this application is so bad that I felt compelled to write one for this. It has never worked ever since I bought it (around 6-7 months back). Even though Mac provides a default utility to extract the zip contents, I wanted to be able to look at the contents of the zip file before extracting which is why I bought this application. The application opens the zip file and I could look at the contents, but when I try to extract the content, it throws an error MOST of the time. And I end up using the default application that Mac provides. I would not recommend this application to anybody.

Horrible User Interface - The program does a better job, both in terms of speed and compression, than the Mac OS “Compress” built-in function. However, the user interface and extremely poor integration with the Mac Finder makes WinZip a real loser. There is no indication that a comression is in progress, so you never know whether it is doing the work or waiting for you to enter some more directives. Really shoddy piece of work.

Not even wrong - Just more of the same big promises, and big shoes to fill for the zip dynasty, with less than adequate follow through. I want my 30 bucks back. Already removed the app after multiple failures.
