Start to save files securely
Using services in the cloud is very convenient, since it let you keep backup copies of important documents, share files with your friends, colleagues or family members, or keep files always available wherever you are. Although there are a large number of products designed to provide online storage, it´s hard to find a program that can encrypt documents before sending them to the cloud, to avoid information theft.
The solution to this problem is BoxCryptor, an application that will secure files before uploading them to the Internet, to keep them 100% safe. It´s compatible with services such as Google Drive, Dropbox and Skydrive, among many others, so you won’t have to sacrifice comfort and convenience for a greater security.
BoxCryptor uses AES-256 encryption, a protocol that is well-known for its security level. Besides, it not only encrypts file contents, but even the file names, to add an extra protection layer to your data. You can be sure that whether it´s your passwords, your bank information or your family’s photographs, all your files will be safe from prying eyes.
How to use BoxCryptor
This program is very easy to use, so you won’t have to confront complicated configurations to get maximum security. To get started, you have a complete assistant that will guide you step by step through the entire encryption process, in case you have any problem.
When you start the program for the first time, you’ll have to create a folder where you’ll place all the contents to be encrypted. Ideally, its location is within the folder you synchronize with your storage service. Next, you’ll have to choose a letter for the application’s virtual drive, and finally set a password to access your files.
After you finish this initial configuration, you’ll start using the program normally. Simply drop the files you want to encrypt in the BoxCryptor folder to let the application start encrypting them in real time. Since this directory is within the location synchronized with Dropbox, Skydrive, Google Drive, etc., once the file encryption is finished they will automatically be uploaded to the cloud.
Now, whenever you want to access your contents, simply access BoxCryptor from any PC, type your password, and that’s it; you’ll be free to work with your information. For your convenience, this program is also available for Android and iOS, so you’ll see your files on your mobile phone or tablet.
In summary, BoxCryptor is a simple and reliable tool, with which you’ll keep your files, even those on the cloud, safe. Download it for free!
