What is an ENX file?

Encrypted file created by Max PC Safe, a file encryption and decryption software program; contains the exact same data as the source file but is encrypted in order to protect its contents from being seen by others.

  1. Navigate to your file by choosing the folder that contains your file in the left pane and then selecting your file in the right pane.
  2. Click "Encrypt," enter a password you want for your file and click OK.
  3. If the encryption was successful, a confirmation message will appear, then click OK. You can choose to encrypt the file with different passwords multiple times. Each time, Max PC Safe will add another ENX extension to the file, e.g., file.pdf.enx.enx.enx.
