Additional Security for Your iCloud
iCloud backups assist you in preventing data loss and allow you to access your data wherever you are. However, if you want to keep your data under your control and want no one but you to be able to access it, an additional security layer is necessary. Boxcryptor helps with that. Boxcryptor’s end-to-end encryption after the zero knowledge paradigm gives you full control over your files, pictures, and sensitive information. Boxcryptor protects your iCloud and gives you alone access to it on all platforms.
Seamless Integration of Boxcryptor with iCloud
When you install Boxcryptor, it creates a virtual drive and detects your iCloud automatically. In your iCloud folder in this virtual drive, you can manage all your data as you are used to. We recommend to create a new folder in the beginning, to encrypt it, and to copy all your files in there. This is the great thing about Boxcryptor: everything you add to an encrypted folder will be encrypted automatically. Encryption is on the fly, which means that you will not notice the encryption when you work with your files in this drive. Boxcryptor handles everything for you in this one safe place.
