When and how to use the "Allow Encrypt/Decrypt" switch

Any user of SafeGuard LAN Crypt can encrypt or decrypt files by selecting a menu item in the context menu for the files. This means that users can even encrypt files for which no rule has been defined. If you want to prevent this, you can specify that this option is not displayed in the context menu for these files.

Allow Encrypt/Decrypt: no

Prevents files for which no encryption rule has been defined from being encrypted or decrypted via the context menu.

In other words, this switch controls if a user can use the Explorer Extensions to encrypt/decrypt files manually in other directories then defined in his encryption profile.

It is also possible to set this switch directly in the Registry.

Name EncryptDecryptAllowed
Value Defines if the user is allowed to manually encrypt or decrypt.

0 => not allowed
1 => allowed (default)

Example: "EncryptDecryptAllowed"=dword:00000001
