- About Us
Boxcryptor Classic was the first product of the Boxcryptor family to secure data in the cloud - officially released in 2011. It grew from a solution originally specific for Dropbox with basic features, to one that supports all main cloud providers, is available on all platforms, and offers even filename encryption. If you are interested in the Boxcryptor Classic versions, you can download it here. Please not that our development focus is on our new Boxcryptor 2.x versions. Boxcryptor Classic will only receive occasional bug fixes.
