The encryption add-on lets you create encryption folders using any storage linked to your odrive. You can turn vanilla storage into strongly encrypted, secure cloud storage.
Encryption folders live on your computer. They work exactly like other sync folders except everything is automatically encrypted before data leave your computer. The cloud only sees and stores your encrypted information. You can easily protect your privacy without sacrificing convenience.
Encrypted data is only as secure as the keys used to encrypt them. Anyone with your encryption keys can decrypt and read your files. For true privacy protection, no one can have any knowledge of your keys.
The encryption add-on uses your secret passphrase to encrypt your files. odrive has zero-knowledge of your secret passphrase. Only you know the secret passphrase. Only you can decrypt your data. The encryption add-on lets you stay in complete control of your privacy.
The encryption add-on uses AES-256, which is the encryption standard established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is the US Government standard for protecting the most sensitive data. It is also the worldwide standard for encryption.
Protect your business
Cloud storage is a fantastic business tool. It can streamline workflow operations and improve business agility. But without proper safeguards, it can also be a liability. Every business should be encrypting its employee and customer records at the minimum. The encryption add-on makes cloud storage safe and productive for business.
Each encryption folder has a secret passphrase. The first time you access an encryption folder on your computer, odrive will ask you to set the secret passphrase. If this is the first time, you can use any secret passphrase. If the passphrase is already set, you must enter the correct secret passphrase to continue.
Encryption happens automatically on your computer. You can find your encryption folders in the "Encryptor" folder. As you access files and make changes, encryption automatically decrypts information coming from the cloud and encrypts data going to the cloud.
With zero-knowledge encryption, no one has your secret passphrase. However, you can recover the secret passphrase from your computer keychain. Just open the keychain application on your computer to retrieve the passphrase.
