Keka, the macOS file archiver

Help Issues Forum

If you like Keka just give it some ,
get it from the App Store or send a PayPal tip!

If you buy Keka from the App Store you will be supporting development,
the app is the same as the version from this website only updated through the App Store.

If you don't like MAS or just want to play around with Keka
but also like the project and want to give it some love, you can send a tip using PayPal.

So simple, so strong

You do not even need to open Keka to compress a file, keep it in your dock and use it from there.
Just drag and drop your files and folders to the Dock icon or the Keka window to create a slimmer version of them.

Privacy is very important

Share safely just setting a password and creating highly encrypted files.
Using AES-256 encryption specification for your 7z files and
Zip 2.0 legacy encryption specification for your Zip files.

Still too big...

If the files are really huge and they do not fit your mail or server, just split them into pieces.
Don't worry, they will still expand to produce your original file :)

  • 7Z
  • ZIP
  • TAR
  • GZIP

Beta version of Keka

You can test the newest features of Keka before they are released.
If you find a bug or have something to report, head over to Issues.

Legacy versions of Keka

Over the years your Mac will become older and will not support
the newest Keka, but relax , the old versions will be here.

Set Keka as the default extraction application

Keka needs a helper to set itself as the default application.
Simply download and extract it, move it to the desktop and then open it.
