Easy to use but comes with some major downsides

2018-07-24

Pros

After that, everything works very smoothly (on desktop) and you never have to worry about the security of your cloud storage again.

Cons

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.

One of the most important application

2018-09-27

I use it to keep sensitive files secured in google drive.

Pros

You just set a pin on it so when you need to access files you enter short pin (or full password if you want) and then it shows your files decrypted and you can work with them while everything stays encrypted in the cloud.

Cons

In my case it solves all my problems. I couldn't find any specific issues.

Make Your Cloud Storage Service Encrypted

2017-02-08

What I really like is its "zero-knowledge provider" means it makes my file or folder impossible to decrypt if incase I forget the password. No reset password option is present so be sure to keep your password safe.

Pros

Files are encrypted in virtual drive, Highly secure, Available in all platform windows, mac and chrome

Cons

No password reset option (which makes it impossible to hack)

Very simple to use and integrates well with online storage

2017-11-13

I feel my confidential files are safe if I have a device stolen or someone accesses my Dropbox files.

Pros

I like that within the same folder (I use Dropbox mostly), you can encrypt some folders and not others. It is easy to unencrypt.

Cons

The free version allows you to use the software on two machines and for two online services.

Free software for privacy-minded users who use the cloud

2018-11-24

My sensitive files are on the web and I am not too concerned about them remaining private.

Pros

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).

Cons

For paying users, I prefer software that is not subscription-based.

Possibly outdated

2020-02-18

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

It's supposed to prompt me for a pin every time the program opens on my desktop, but it stopped doing so.

Generally Good Choice

2020-04-05

It's a great, affordable product for people who want a simple way to encrypt high-quality, but insecure cloud storage options such as Google Drive and Dropbox.

Pros

It's so easy to use.

Cons

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

Much Needed Cloud Security Solution

2019-09-10

I am currently evaluating Boxcryptor to see if I would like to move up to the paid plan; the software looks really promising and I am thinking that it my trial continues to go well it will take care of cloud security and allow me to store more online - meaning that my business documents are available wherever I am (which is currently a headache as they're not!)

Pros

I like the wide range of cloud providers that Boxcryptor works with; I have multiple free accounts with cloud providers, and this software covers them all. I like the fact that I can trial the software fully before purchasing.

Cons

At the moment I'm having difficulty with some longer file names and the product, though I must admit that I haven't fully read through the support forums and suspect that there may be a quick fix for this.
