    Does Boxcryptor use up more storage space on my PC or Mac?

    No, Boxcryptor does not use up more or double the space. Some users fear that we store files twice on the machine, encrypted, and unencrypted. This is not the case; the files are only stored once.

    Why should I choose Boxcryptor?

    MagentaCLOUD by the German Telekom chose us as the encryption solution they recommend to their users. This partnership and trust shows how well Boxcryptor and MagentaCLOUD work together.

    Does Boxcryptor support GDPR compliance?

    Yes. Boxcryptor qualifies as a state-of-the-art technical and organizational measure (TOM) to ensure GDPR compliance. Boxcryptor effectively protects sensitive data. The General Data Protection Regulation is recommending encryption, when it comes to the protection of personal data.

    A positive side-effect of encryption is: the obligation to notify cases of data loss is omitted. This is due to the fact that nobody is able to exploit the lost or stolen data – no matter how sensitive the information contained is.

    How can the trustworthiness of the software be verified?

    Boxcryptor has been tested for security and vulnerabilities in an independent audit. The audit was carried out by the security firm Kudelski Security, with consistently positive results. Amongst other things, the insight into the code shows that no serious vulnerabilities were found by the security company. The full report is available on our blog.

    How secure is MagentaCLOUD?

    Unlike hard drives, for example, data stored in the cloud is very well protected, as physical events like fires or burglaries can not affect your cloud-stored data. Nevertheless, individuals have to secure files that they save in a cloud since many cloud storage providers do not offer end-to-end encryption. With Boxcryptor, you can encrypt your data before uploading it in the cloud.
