Q1: I am using WinZip to compress the JPEGs, but size didn’t change much.
A1: In order to compress your photos as much as possible without any loss of photo quality, WinZip should be configured to create Zipx files (best method compression). With WinZip, “Zipx, Best method” compression examines each file and selects the compression option most likely to supply the best compression results.
Q2: I open a password protected zip in WinZip, but the file list still be obtained?
A2: the behavior depends on the zip file encryption method, some of them are using password to encrypt the directory of files in the Zip (it is used to show the file list without unzipping), some of them do not encrypt the directory. For security, we recommend to avoid using file or folder name with confidential information.
Q3: Why WinZip Android needs to be granted with the “Device ID & call information” permission?
A3: It is the general app access permission on Android system. We use it because 1) to get the device information and apply to the feedback email automatically. 2) to use for the Google to track the user operations in WinZip at backend.
