When we say FREE, we mean that it's really free for everybody in any environment. ZipGenius is donation-funded: maybe you would want to donate to support the development.

Yes, it's really free!

ZipGenius was born as a personal project and only at a later time became a software available to all for no money at all: it doesn’t matter if you use it at home or at work or at school; also, it doesn’t matter if you install it on just one computer or on thousands of workstations. The ZipGenius project is supported by the ads you see in these pages and by the donations you could make through the following channels:

Need yet another powerful alternative to WinZip for zipping and unzipping your files? Well I can give you one, and I’ll even do it for free. While looking for other good zipping programs that have not gotten a lot of press, I found ZipGenius. I might be able to say it is one of the best (if not the best) free zip program out there today.


All in all, testing ZipGenius was a piece of cake. It’s simple enough for beginners, while power users can also spend quality time with it exploring the advanced features it has to offer. It takes advantage of basic system tools to get the process done as fast as possible, with little effort required on your behalf.


Powerful, secure, and easy to use, ZipGenius provides a free alternative to premium compression software such as WinZip. The versatile utility features support for more than 20 compression formats and the option to secure your files through CZIP encryption.
