How Boxcryptor Works
Boxcryptor protects sensitive and personal data in the cloud. Files are encrypted end-to-end locally on users' devices before they are transferred to cloud storage. This means that the data can only be accessed with the appropriate authorization and important security criteria of the EU GDPR are met.
Boxcryptor creates a virtual drive. Once set up, encryption takes place completely in the background. Programs and functions can continue to be used without any loss of comfort.
