Reviews for this release

     
First, I did not have issues downloading VeraCrypt using Chromium, nor installing on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. There was no false positive virus notification. Secondly, the program works like a charm, requires minimal effort to learn, and is virtually dummy-proof. The UI is very well laid-out. One of the better programs I have used in any category.

First, THERE ABSOLUTELY IS NO VIRUS!!! Now with that out of the way, my review: It works flawlessly. I use Windows 10 x64 14986 but I have no doubt it works everywhere. Absolutely no better encryption software than VeraCrypt is available, either paid or free. Don't believe it? Try them and see. Terrible interfaces, if there even IS an interface, some are command-line only, improper implementation of algorithms (by tweaking to make them "better" without knowing what they're doing), and a host of other problems. I scanned this version of VeraCrypt today at VirusTotal with 54 anti-virus engines with ZERO detections as a virus. Well known engines included are AVG, Avast, Avira, BitDefender, ClamAV, Eset, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, McAfee, Symantec, and TrendMicro, Bottom line: You can not go wrong with VeraCrypt. Hats off to Mr. Idrassi yet again! Donated.

Nice,and good

Awesome - everything (almost) working perfectly! Was something changed in this release that removed the option to not display any text (or create your own message) during pre-boot password for an encrypted system disk?

Works well and compatible with TrueCrypt

Tested it on Ubuntu 16.04 for file based volumes from 5 MB Truecrypt FAT to 100 GB Veracrypt NTFS. Worked fine. Used it on Windows 10 to encrypt system drive and second drive. Awesome! This tools makes me feel safe for my data - perfect guidance during encryption and recovery stick. Donated some amount, will donate more later. Hope will support BTRFS in future on Windows and on Linux.

My browser is claiming there is a virus in this release. If this is a known niggle, please disregard my 1 star rating!! But other can you address or answer the concern please?
by Soulfiremage on Dec 24, 2016 at 12:09 PM
The files are safe and it is just a false positive from Google anti-malware service. It started just before Christmas...it is not helpful that this happens during holidays period. Files are available at https://launchpad.net/veracrypt/+download

Reviewing to save people's time ACER, ASUS, and HP UEFI firmware do not play nicely with this, and drop you into an autorepair loop. I wasted my time so you don't have to.

Best ever software!!!!!!!! Tanks

NOT A VIRUS!!! You can scan it I did Mbam - Malwarebytes Corporate, even scanned link and uploaded file to TotalVirus 100% legit. Great work I just had come up on this! Bitlockers comp? I hope

Someone used VeraCrypt to build a ransomware. Now, if you try to download it from your website, browsers warn you that this is ransomware. Please, tell browser companies that this software is safe if it downloaded from your sources. Or make an announcement on your page.

A bit more stable on Win10 64 than 1.18. I am running in portable mode and besides the few nag screens on volume decryption its the best solution out there IMO.

No issues, no surprises, updated on Windows/10 Home and Professional. Very pleased.

The same issue with DELL Laptops running on Windows 10 like in HP Laptops (:

As solid as ever - works like a charm.
by Jockster on Nov 29, 2016 at 5:59 AM
     
Excellent, useful and very fast. Thank you for getting it up and running for Windows 10. Only issue is with HP laptops and having to always use the rescue disk due to HP not letting the system boot to legacy first. Not an issue on the HP desktops. Very stable.

Working perfectly!

Better than good.

VIRUS!!! Now that I have your attention. The exe's and the Linux Setup downloads are both being blocked by Chromium and Firefox on Linux. Chromium is saying the file is malicious. Firefox is claiming the file contains a virus or malware. I checked previous versions and they are also being flagged in the same way. I have no way to download Veracrypt! Please get this fixed. I hope it's an innocent mistake on the part of my browsers. I hope they haven't been hacked. That would be the worst thing since Truecrypt.

This is a false positive from Google and I didn't receive any official explanation about it. Meanwhile, VeraCrypt can be downloaded safely from https://launchpad.net/veracrypt/+download or https://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt/files/VeraCrypt%201.19/
