Re: Boxcryptor

End to End Encryption Coming?

morkus

I read that Dropbox will be starting to roll out end-to-end encryption (where they don't have the keys to read content if they chose to).

 

Does anyone know when this feature will be available?

 

Since iCloud now has this End-to-end encryption feature with its "Advanced Data Protection", I may just need to opt for that instead if Dropbox isn't going to implement this security soon.

 

Thanks,

Thank you Mark. I will try and find another encryption tool. I have downloaded thousands of photos already, can I add an encryption service afterwards? Thanks!

That'll depend upon the tool I'm afraid.

Thank you Mark. I have installed Cryptomator, but I have no idea whether my photos are end to end encrypted. The problem that technology and me don't go together. Would you be able to help me with this if possible please?

You will need to contact the developers Im afraid. I'm not aware of any of these products as I don't use them and wouldn't want to advise anything due to risk of data loss.
