I know this has been asked in years past but given increasing public interest (and consequently, user interest) in privacy, when might Pathfinder support more robust options for encrypted .zip or .7z files? It would be nice if I didn't have to rely on other applications because the built-in "ZIP with Password" option in Pathfinder provides anemic privacy/security at best.

Apart from this, I'm very happy with Pathfinder and I plan to keep using it for the foreseeable future. This is one thing that would make the application even more useful. Hopefully, other users share my concerns about privacy and security. I believe Cocoatech developers can come up with a clever way to streamline folder/file encryption and decryption.

Thanks for your time and consideration; have a pleasant day!
