Ratings and Reviews
Latest version is a huge step back
The latest version takes away the main appeal of this software: being able to securely have your cloud files with you. Now they are only available in the Files app without any sort of protection and you cannot opt out.
Having this as an option would be great, especially if I could choose to only have some folders or drives available in Files. Having it mandatory makes this app useless to me.
I’ve had a subscription to BoxCryptor for multiple years but will be canceling it as a result of this change.
Developer Response ,
We are very sorry you are not satisfied with our new iOS-App. However, there seems to be a misunderstanding concerning the security of your data and our encryption. Please let us resolve this: Although we have decided to discontinue our own file browser on iOS and integrate solely into the Files app, all your data remains encrypted at the same, high level it is and always was supposed to be. Due to technical restrictions, it is only the additional app protection (e.g., extra PIN for accessing your data) which is now missing.
As it was an important aspect of the app for many, we understand its removal may have raised concerns. Still, we must emphasize that device protection is not Boxcryptor’s purpose as our main functionality will remain in protecting your data during transfer to and storage in the cloud.
The cloud providers showing in the Files app’s Boxcryptor location can be manually added or removed in the Boxcryptor app which still contains the settings controls. You can look up more here: https://www.boxcryptor.com/en/help/manage-cloud-providers-and-locations/ios/#add-provider
Truly an Indespensible tool
Time to come clean about Apple and IOS. Apple as no wish to create useful tools. Office 365 from Microsoft allows me to create, read and store file interchangeably among devices including windows. Apple has steadfastly refused to crea a mechanism to store a file of this kind to a USB compatible drive of which there are many. Picture files or music perhaps, but not .ppt, docs, or excel. To do this you need to use the cloud and worry over security. Using BOXCRYPTOR I can save a copy of an iPad created document directly to a BOXCRYPTOR directory. No sending or sharing. Or multiple moves, just straight store fully encrypted file created on the iPad locally and open it on my home PC in complete security. All this no thanks to Apple. I have USB drives for saving pics/screen shots, but not any app file from ms office. BOXCRYPTOR is reliable and I’d be using it for years, these reviews that call it junk, are from those who are ignorant.
What the crap devs?
You managed to deleted my last 1 star review, so here we go again. Ya’ll shot yourselves in the foot by integrating with the iOS Files app. I wouldn’t even integrate my cloud storage with Files, so why in the blazes would I want to do so with my most important documents.
My personal files are now all showing up under the Recent tab, with no option to disable. They even started appearing in the system Search field as recommended results, until I learned how to turn off that nightmare.
I canceled my paid Boxcryptor account two months back, when this madness started. This week, I’m finally making the jump to a competitor and leaving you altogether. Boxcryptor has been a key component to my of file security for years. Well, sayonara. Call me if you ever pull your heads from the sand.
