Cryptomator: Encrypt Files Before You Send Them to the Cloud

Cryptomator encrypts files on your mobile device before they are uploaded to your cloud. Even if a third party gained unauthorized access to your files (e.g., hacker attack), your files are secure from prying eyes.

These days, pretty much everybody is using a cloud file hosting service. Might be iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.

Preferably you would ditch all those services and choose a self-hosted cloud server software, but the next best thing is to encrypt your files before uploading them to the cloud.

We’ve talked about VeraCrypt before. Now let’s take a look at Cryptomator – a free and open source client-side encryption app.

The app is available for free ( “pay what you want” option is available if you want to support the development ) for Mac, Linux and Windows and you can get it here. The iOS app is available here ( $4.99 ) and Android app is available here ( $4.99 ).
