(What Am I Trading?)
Cryptomator sells their mobile apps while keeping this desktop one free, except when you want to change the default theme, for which you have to trade currency to them. This is a small trade for the desktop app, but knowing that trades re a slippery slope, then we have to warn people about this app not being entirely trade-free.
Cryptomator provides transparent, client-side encryption for your cloud. Protect your documents from unauthorized access. Cryptomator is free and open source software, so you can rest assured there are no backdoors.
Easy and Reliable
We understand simplicity as a key aspect of security. With Cryptomator you don’t have to deal with accounts, key management, cloud access grants or cipher configurations. Just choose a password and you’re ready to go.
You don’t even need to specify what cloud you use. Cryptomator encrypts files and doesn’t care where you store them. This makes it a lightweight application, which we believe is a huge benefit for reliability. Complexity would kill security.
Cryptomator is a so-called transparent encryption utility. This means that you don’t have to learn new workflows. Just work with your files as you’re used to.
Secure and Trustworthy
Cryptomator encrypts file contents and names using AES. Your passphrase is protected against bruteforcing attempts using scrypt. Directory structures get obfuscated. The only thing which cannot be encrypted without breaking your cloud synchronization is the modification date of your files.
Cryptomator is a free and open source software licensed under the GPLv3. This allows anyone to check our code. It is impossible to introduce backdoors for third parties. Also we cannot hide vulnerabilities. And the best thing is: There is no need to trust us, as you can control us!
Vendor lock-ins are impossible. Even if we decided to stop development: The source code is already cloned by hundreds of other developers. As you don’t need an account, you will never stand in front of locked doors.
