Photos, company secrets, or the latest bank statement: Cryptomator allows users to securely store even sensitive data in the cloud. The easyto-use app encrypts files on mobile devices before they are uploaded to the cloud storage. Access to encrypted files is equally effortless.

Cryptomator is the first open-source encryption solution for the cloud that is also user-friendly. The open-source encryption implementation ensures that the app does what it is supposed to do. No backdoors are implemented, no weaknesses are concealed. For its user-friendliness and transparency, Cryptomator received the CeBIT Innovation Award 2016 for Usable Security and Privacy.
