The history of AxCrypt started in 2001 when initial author Svante needed to share confidential data over the Internet and failed to find existing data security solutions for Internet services that were both simple and easy to use for everyone. It was then that he developed and released the first version of AxCrypt.

In 2014, after 13 years on the market, AxCrypt had grown to be one of the world’s most popular encryption applications with over 20 million downloads worldwide. Svante teamed up with serial entrepreneur Zebastian Victorin to commercialize the product and founded AxCrypt AB to take AxCrypt to the next level.

After 2 years of hard work AxCrypt 2 was released in 2016.

Since then we have been awarded “The World’s Best Encryption Software” by the prestigious PC Magazine 2016-2024 as well as many other review sites in the world. We have a global reach with users from all countries. Our biggest markets are Europe with 45% and America with 30% of the users.

Our mission is to provide individuals and small teams with encryption solutions that are easier to use than ever before. We’re removing the complexity from the use of strong and proven cryptographic technology.

We are a highly motivated, creative and powerful team that is passionate about making data security solutions simple and reliable for individuals and teams.
