Boxcryptor coming to Windows Phone, join the beta today!


The majority of us all rely on cloud storage in one form or another. OneDrive is what most Windows Phone and Windows 8 users rely on, especially since it’s integrated into the operating systems. Other popular cloud storage services include Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Mega and others. How secure are they though? Boxcryptor is company focused on protecting your data that you upload to other cloud storage services. And they have an app for Windows Phone being developed.

Boxcryptor (www.boxcryptor.com) works with many major cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, SugarSync, Box and others. If you want to store sensitive information into these services you might be interested in trying out Boxcryptor. Apps are available for Windows, Mac, Chrome, Android and iOS. Apps are coming soon to Windows Phone, Windows 8, and BlackBerry.

Here’s what the Windows Phone version of Boxcryptor will feature:

  • Supports most cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. See below for a complete list of supported providers
  • Access your encrypted files (documents, photos, music, etc.) in your cloud anytime and have your sensitive files always with you
  • Encryption and decryption is done directly on your device - your password is never transmitted
  • Secure file encryption using the AES-256 standard
  • Boxcryptor Unlimited users can also use filename encryption

I currently use truecrypt to do something similar, but if this has Win8 and WP apps, I'll give it a try.

Nice.  Will you be able to locally encrypt a file on the WP device and upload to a designated Boxcryptor folder on OneDrive (DropBox or other provider) as well?  Or is it for viewing files that already exist on the cloud service only?

Boxcryptor also offers a plugin for Google Chrome which allows you to encrypt and decrypt your files directly in your browser. Best regards, Andrea (from Boxcryptor)

I stopped using Chrome and never will again. IE, Opera and Firefox all have users that can benefit and appreciate this. I hope you're considering that.

This is amazing! Boxcryptor offers rock solid security that is so easy to use. Its the smoothest, most powerful option I've seen yet. Can't wait for the apps.
