The majority of us all rely on cloud storage in one form or another. OneDrive is what most Windows Phone and Windows 8 users rely on, especially since it’s integrated into the operating systems. Other popular cloud storage services include Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Mega and others. How secure are they though? Boxcryptor is company focused on protecting your data that you upload to other cloud storage services. And they have an app for Windows Phone being developed.

Boxcryptor ( works with many major cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, SugarSync, Box and others. If you want to store sensitive information into these services you might be interested in trying out Boxcryptor. Apps are available for Windows, Mac, Chrome, Android and iOS. Apps are coming soon to Windows Phone, Windows 8, and BlackBerry.

Here’s what the Windows Phone version of Boxcryptor will feature:

  • Access your encrypted files (documents, photos, music, etc.) in your cloud anytime and have your sensitive files always with you

I currently use truecrypt to do something similar, but if this has Win8 and WP apps, I'll give it a try.

danielgray says:

Yes useless without a win8 app on my surface.

pbjr92 says:

Thanks for the tip. It looks like a great app.
Subscribed for the beta.

gamato says:

Have a look at ;-)
No WP version, though, of course :-/

mados123 says:

Nice.  Will you be able to locally encrypt a file on the WP device and upload to a designated Boxcryptor folder on OneDrive (DropBox or other provider) as well?  Or is it for viewing files that already exist on the cloud service only?

jwinch2 says:

Excellent.  I've been waiting for someting like this to come around.  


xandros9 says:

Really tempted, but being able to access stuff from a web browser is key for me

oh well

Boxcryptor also offers a plugin for Google Chrome which allows you to encrypt and decrypt your files directly in your browser. Best regards, Andrea (from Boxcryptor)

Do you have plans to develop said plugin for Firefox?

We also want to support other browsers in the future, but we do not have any concrete release plans yet.

KMF79 says:

I stopped using Chrome and never will again. IE, Opera and Firefox all have users that can benefit and appreciate this. I hope you're considering that.

How do they make money?

This is amazing! Boxcryptor offers rock solid security that is so easy to use. Its the smoothest, most powerful option I've seen yet. Can't wait for the apps.
