So for this tutorial, we'll use this software called Cryptomator. Cryptomator is a simple tool for digital self-defense. It allows you to protect your cloud data by yourself and independently.

Most cloud providers encrypt data only during transmission or they keep the keys for decryption for themselves. These keys can be stolen, copied, or misused. Thanks to Cryptomator, only you have the key to your data in your hand.

Cryptomator allows you to access your files from all your devices. It's easy to use and integrates seamlessly between your data and the cloud.

How does Cryptomator protect your data?

Cryptomator's technology meets the latest standards and encrypts both files and filenames with AES and 256 bit key length.

To start with Cryptomator, you assign a password for a folder - we call it a vault - within your cloud. That is all. No complicated key creation, no registration, no configuration!

To access the vault, simply enter the password again. You will be provided with a virtual encrypted drive to which you can move your data - just like a USB flash drive. Every time you store something on this drive, Cryptomator encrypts the data automatically. Pretty simple, right?

The technology behind this is state-of-the-art and encrypts both files and filenames with AES and 256 bit key length. This means: if someone looks into the folder in your cloud, they cannot draw any conclusions about your data.

If someone looks into the folder in your cloud, they cannot draw any conclusions about your data.

Why is Cryptomator secure and trustworthy?

No backdoors, no expiration date thanks to open source

You don't have to trust Cryptomator blindly, because it is open-source software. For you as a user, this means that everyone can see the code

Audited by security researchers: In addition to independent security audits, the software is continuously and publicly tested in an automated way and has a measurable code quality and test coverage that is far above the industry average.

When using Cryptomator and a cloud service with an appropriate DPA, you can synchronize data GDPR-compliant over the cloud with an entire team.
