The grade of security and encryption provided by Boxcryptor is really impressive for its price range.

Cons
I don't like how Dropbox Paper files are damaged if encrypted through Boxcryptor.

The code is closed source and there are no security audits, so you have to put a lot of trust into the developers of this software. Apart from that, the Android app is a disaster.

The updates are a bit glitchy sometimes and they tend to reset my settings. It's supposed to prompt me for a pin every time the program opens on my desktop, but it stopped doing so.

Free software for privacy-minded users who use the cloud

Reviewed 4 years ago

My sensitive files are on the web and I am not too concerned about them remaining private. It would not be the case with Dropbox without Boxcryptor

Pros

It has a free version that encrypts locally your files and then syncs with a variety of cloud services. I use Dropbox and it works flawlessly, on Mac and Android. I am not a security specialist but they seem trustable based on the explanations on their site (I read there 3-4 years ago when I began to use the software). If you want to encrypt the names of your files or sync more than 2 devices, there is a fee.

Cons

Nothing for me. For paying users, I prefer software that is not subscription-based.

Boxcryptor Encryption software

Reviewed a year ago

Up until migration to 365 it has been very good

Pros

It can be reasonably simple to use and provides a very high level of encryption. I was easy to use, till we migrated to Office 365 and since then it has been more difficult to use

Cons

When we used it with Google Drive Boxcryptor was easy to use. Office 365 is not so compatible with it and gets confused by the encrypted files. These negative features mean that I am not so inclined to use Boxcryptor to encrypt files unless it is really necessary. Moving to Office 365 has been a backwards step in terms of use of Boxcryptor. It may be I am just not familiar with Boxcryptor with 365 but as stated previously, with Google drive it was easy and logical to use with 365 one has to think carefully how to encrypt files

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback. If we can assist you in any way with the deployment of Boxcryptor in Microsoft 365, please feel free to contact our support team.

Ich bin vom Service enttäuscht

Reviewed a year ago

Es ist total nützlich Cloud-Laufwerke zu verschlüsseln, die macht Boxcrypotr zuverlässig. Die kostenlose Lösung Cryptomator allerdings auch. Bislang hatte Boxcryptor auf dem Mac den Vorteil, dass man mit Spotlight eine Volltextsuche auf dem verschlüsselten Laufwerk hatte. Dieser Vorteil ist nun futsch. Der Business-Support ist nach meiner Erfahrung enttäuschend.

Pros

Die Software läßt sich einfach installieren und läuft auf dem Mac dann im Hintergrund. Boxcryptor blendet ein virtuelles Laufwerk ein, das alle Dateien entschlüsselt anzeigt. Dort kann für jede Datei oder ganze Verzeichnisse festgelegt werden, ob diese verschlüsselt werden sollen oder nicht. Das funktioniert alles im Hintergrund, im virtuellen Laufwerk sieht man nur anhand eines Symbols, dass eine Datei verschlüsselt ist. Öffnet man dann das Laufwerk auf der Cloud, dann sind dort alle Dateien verschlüsselt. Auf Wunsch werden auch die Dateinamen verschlüsselt.

Cons

Auf dem iPhone/iPad gibt es zwar eine App mit der man auf die Dokumente zugreifen kann, doch das kann man nur als Notlösung verstehen. Wirklich arbeiten möchte man damit nicht. Seit einigen Monaten wird die Spotlight-Suche nicht mehr unterstützt, damit verliert der Boxcryptor seinen Vorteil gegenüber dem kostenlosen Cryptomator. Mit einem Update wurde die Spotlightsuche einfach deaktiviert und Boxcryptor...

Vielen Dank fur Ihr Feedback. Es tut uns leid zu horen, dass Sie mit unserem Support unzufrieden sind. Unser Team versucht bestmoglich, bei allen Problemen zu helfen, leider gibt es aktuell aber beim Thema Spotlight-Suche keine positiven Neuigkeiten. Allerdings haben wir in der vergangenen Woche eine komplett uberarbeitet iOS-App veroffentlicht, die durch eine direkte Einbindung in die Dateien-App noch unkompliziertes zu bedienen ist: https://www.boxcryptor.com/download/?platform=ios

Possibly outdated

Reviewed 2 years ago

It works well but I think I'll probably stop renewing the membership upon the next cycle since OneDrive seems to have addressed this security concern by encrypting everything themselves.

Pros

I really liked that it allowed me to encrypt my OneDrive account so that Microsoft can't see it. Unfortunately, it may now be a bit superfluous.

Cons

The updates are a bit glitchy sometimes and they tend to reset my settings. It's supposed to prompt me for a pin every time the program opens on my desktop, but it stopped doing so. This is fine because I trust my spouse, but it also means my computer isn't safe from an intruder that is able to get passed the welcome screen of my desktop.

Excellent

Reviewed a year ago

Excellent encryption, easy encryption/decryption of files, folders or drives.

Pros

It is easy to install and works with Dropbox, BOX, OneDrive, Google Drive, on your PC and on your mobile devices such as your smartphone or tablet.

Cons

The limitation of cloud services per paid license. Since a lot of date nowadays stored in the cloud, you might need several cloud providers for your business needs, thus, a few more cloud-providers would have been nice.

Vendor response

Thank you for the positive review. Boxcryptor for Teams does not include any limitations regarding the number of cloud storage providers. If we can help you in this regard, our support team will be happy to assist you.
