Cryptomator is a simple tool for your digital self-defense. Allows you to protect the data you send to the cloud yourself and regardless of the encryption it provides the service you are using. Most providers cloud they only encrypt your data when you upload it or have the keys to decrypt it if it is stored encrypted. These keys can be stolen, copied or used for purposes you won't like. Here comes the Cryptomator app, so that only you have the key to them data you.
Cryptomator lets you access your files from all the devices you have.
How does it protect your data?
Cryptomator technology uses the latest encryption standards and encrypts both files and filenames with AES 256 bit.
To get started with Cryptomator, enter a password for the vault folder in your cloud. That was all. You do not need a complicated key generation process and a lot of settings.
To access the vault, simply use the same password. The folder will open. it is about a virtual encrypted drive where you can move and store your data just like you would a USB. Every time you save something to this drive, Cryptomator will automatically encrypt the data.
The encryption technology it uses, as mentioned above, is AES at 256 bits. So if someone looks at the folder in your cloud, they will not be able to understand what you have saved since in addition to the data, the file names are also encrypted.
It's made of safe and reliable?
This means that you should not blindly trust Cryptomator, as it is open source software. For you as a user, it may not mean anything, but those who know can read any line of the code to see how the application behaves.
So in addition to independent security checks, the software is constantly and publicly tested in an automated way.
