Manage Clouds and Locations

Boxcryptor supports a vast variety of cloud storage providers out of the box. Additionally, Boxcryptor works with every cloud provider which supports the WebDAV protocol.

Add Provider

Boxcryptor works as an additional security layer for your cloud storage. On Android, we connect directly to your provider and handle both uploading and encrypting your files. To add a new provider to Boxcryptor, follow these steps:

  1. Tap on inline   Help Open Drawer.
  2. Tap on Add Provider and select your provider.
  3. Enter your provider’s credentials to connect it to Boxcryptor.

Google Drive

Boxcryptor gives you access to files stored in Google Drive. Additional folders backed up using the Google Backup & Sync desktop software are not available.

Custom Locations

Boxcryptor supports adding folders on your SD card or your local storage as Local Storage provider:

  1. Tap on inline   Help Open Drawer.
  2. Tap on Add Provider and select Local Storage.
  3. Tap on inline   Help More Vertical and select Show internal storage.
  4. Tap on inline   Help Open Drawer, select your devices and choose your own, customized location.

WebDAV Locations

If your cloud provider is not listed as a supported provider, chances are high that Boxcryptor supports it nevertheless, because we support the WebDAV protocol. This protocol is used by most providers.

  1. Contact your cloud provider for the WebDAV credentials.
  2. Tap on inline   Help Open Drawer.
  3. Tap on Add Provider and select WebDAV Advanced.
  4. Enter your provider’s credentials to connect it with Boxcryptor.

Note: ownCloud and nextCloud both support WebDAV. In default, configuration urls are: https://example.com/owncloud/remote.php or https://example.com/nextcloud/remote.php
