Is anybody using Crytptomantor or another similar encryption program?
Does it work well with Nextcloud?
I have installed it recently for using it with Dropbox, but haven’t configured it yet.
Since I am planning to just move to Nextcloud now that I have a Disroot account, I have been wondering if it’s worth setting it up, if it works well with the service, and / or if there is any known issue I should be aware of.
I don’t have much experience with cloud.disroot.org: but previously I have always encrypted my local backups to NAS and no, I’ve never had any issues [knock on wood].
I looked up the app you’re talking about, and it seems to have fair reviews - Only found one review, the other sources all seemed to be from the company.
In terms of cloud.disroot.org - I don’t encrypt everything. Mainly encrypting personal files like banking information, income tax returns and associated correspondence. Pictures, I don’t bother with usually. Sometimes (when I’m motivated to do so) I scrub meta data from pictures, but not always.
I use it on iOS but saved on iCloud.
No problems so far. I think it is a great multi platform solution. Mountain duck and cyberduck are other apps from the same company as far as I know. I am sure their are better native linux tools but if you want multi platform it is great.
Accessing data feels slower than just saving it without encryption. Hope that means the encryption is strong
Just try it out. You may want to keep backup copies of your cryptomator “disk” on another cloud storage.
I try to automate it. I do not want to think about it or copy per hand.
I use Cryptomator for personal files I may need access to while I am not at home. You can use every cloud storage as long as the encryption is good. Just save the password handwritten somewhere, good encryption sucks if you forget the password. Thats the reason I do not use gpg keys for encrypting my files. You loose the key and have no access. You need to keep backups of your Cryptomator disk in cause of deletion or corruption. Just copy it after closing the disk to another storage location.
On iOS you can use touchid to unlock it. Works good. On macOS or linux you need to type in the password.
I only us it on 1 device at a time. Do not know what happens while writting to it with multiple devices at the same time.
For backups I can not help you. To many solutions. Just zipped up folders with password protection works well on all platforms. But only if you can choose AES as encryption. Native zip encryption already unsafe. Hope that helps.
