- About Us
Developing security solutions in the Age of Cloud Computing is a very innovative field and we have many ideas on how we can help you protect your data. Especially a security software needs to be well designed, implemented and tested before being released to the general public. We are strong believers in the importance of involving our users in the development process and gathering their feedback as early as possible – our product development is driven by our users’ feedback. Therefore, we created this "Boxcryptor Labs" space, where advanced and interested Boxcryptor users can get early access to technology and prototypes we are developing and share their direct feedback with us.
As with many early access software and prototypes, everything presented here is "work-in-progress". Although everything is being tested by us, please be aware that it is beta (or even alpha) software and not a stable release. Unexpected problems may occur so please make sure you have made a backup before using the software presented here to be able to restore your data correctly.
Thank you for your support,
The Boxcryptor Team
We are happy to announce that we just released the Beta Version of our new Boxcryptor Portable! Boxcryptor Portable allows you to use Boxcryptor without a local installation and is therefore ideal for users who do not have administrator rights on their computer.
Boxcryptor Portable is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
The Beta version already supports all providers which are supported in our official Android version (Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive and many more)
And Boxcryptor Portable is a real portable software: You cannot only skip a local Boxcryptor installation, but you also don't have to install the client software of your cloud storage provider. To decrypt a file, Boxcryptor Portable directly connects to your storage provider, downloads the encrypted file, decrypts it locally on your device. There is no need to locally sync your files.
Important Reminder: As with all early access software, Boxcryptor Portable is "work-in-progress". Please be aware that it is beta software and not a stable release. Unexpected problems may occur anytime so please make sure you have a backup before using the software to be able to restore your data correctly. Please do not use the beta version for productive data.
