A pity it doesn't work under 10.11 any more. :-(

In a cloud-connected world a very good tool for iOS, macOS and Windows (Linux also available but never used it) to en- and decrypt smoothly your data before you upload it into „someone else computer“ (cloud). Integration in Finder or in Windows system as well as in iOS very easy and smoothy. I use a closed software eco system to have the quality (Apple with iTunes and App Store) and also for my secured stored data I want to have a commercial company standing behind it - quality is not coming from elsewhere…. Love it since many years!

With each new version I hope for some more security measures such as auto logout when the system goes into sleep or lock or after a certain amount of inactive minutes/hours but no such thing. Also it keeps logging in automatically whenever I start the app manually (I have not configured it to start automatically upon system start) despite removing all Boxcryptor keychain entries each time it logs in without my user password. .

I have stopped using it as it is unsecure IMO due to the above.

The free version only supports a single cloud service and 2 devices. Anything more is $50 a year for the average user. FYI: its a subscription service

I'm using the free version with Dropbox on Mac and iPhone. Works flawlessly. Easy to use, too.

Seemed to work OK for Google Drive and Dropbox. I was able to create an encrypted folder inside the folders that's updated to the remote server by the apps. But I originally bought and paid for it so it would sync with Amazon Cloud Drive (which is not a S3 bucket). Their support said to mount the drive with the WebDAV mount feature but Amazon only allows using their client or the web. So I couldn't sync. Got my money back and they removed all references to Amazon Cloud from their product description. Having it sync in "free" mode wasn't worth it so I went back to SpiderOak which I was trying to replace. It just works.

Catastrophically buggy. With the latest version I lost data on waking back up from sleep. Boxcryptor volume couldn't be mounted, so everything unsaved on Word was lost. Separately, I've had occasion to contact support; they work German hours, with suitably generous holidays, so don't expect any immediate response. Shame, as it's a much-needed kind of product.

The best solution I've found to protect Dropbox data! You've got a virtual BoxCryptor folder containing your Dropbox (or any other box you're using), inside which you right-click files/folders and select encrypt. It's as easy as that! You keep the ease of use of Dropbox and you get peace of mind about your data for free, why not using it? I see comments down here saying OSXFUSE was needed: well, maybe some time ago but not (any more?), BoxCryptor installed as any other app (OS 10.9.5). I absolutely recommend it. :-)

Fresh install of Yosemite and OS X Fuse version 2.7.2 (latest) yet Boxcryptor keeps on whining about downloading OS X Fuse first... Annoying because the otherwise perfectly functioning Boxcryptor becomes useless as of it.

Please add Boxcryptor Classic as a separate app in MacUpdate. As of now, I do use Boxcryptor Classic (and like it a lot) and do not use Boxcryptor (2.0). Now however an update always shows in MacUpdate Desktop (as an option to go to v2), however it MacUpdate does not show updates for Boxcryptor Classic (app is still getting updates). Please make two separate apps on MacUpdate so that particular update shows for particular app. Thanks!:-)

Boxcryptor requires OSXFUSE 2.6.2 or newer, but doesn't work with 2.7. Unable to test it without downgrading OSXFUSE.

I give up. I cannot delete this from my Mac. I followed the instructions but it keeps coming back. In my documents folder and on the top of my desktop. Help please.

Here are two client-side encrypted cloud services that are entirely Mac-friendly: Arq SpiderOak I suggest you look at their services. I have no experience with BoxCryptor. But I can tell you that both Arq and SpiderOak provide access to your files on iOS devices while providing 100% privacy, no illegal, unconstitutional snooping allowed. But be sure to do your homework and read about them as both services have their quirks. Also note: Apple's iDisk app provides the ability to make your own encrypted, expandable disk images. They are called sparsedisk and sparse bundle images. I use them via Dropbox. They aren't accessible via iOS, but they let you essentially do what BoxCryptor does for you. There are a lot of tutorials on the net to help you set them up.

The big problem is if you use Dropbox, Box, etc on iPad or iPhone you can not decrypt!

This sounds nice but there are huge tradeoffs with this implementation: - No Spotlight support - No web access from dropbox.com - No support for Dropbox-enabled apps

Now I can feel secure knowing all my photos on Dropbox are encrypted. Very Happy!

Works well... except Spotlight isn't supported. 5 stars when it is.

So what's the difference between the free and the $39.99 personal edition? Went to the developer's site and there is no obvious explanation of this. Really don't care for webpages of applications that intentionally obscure or hide these matters. Users and potential users like transparency.

I've been searching for a cross platform and cross device encryption app for ages and for my the clincher was: 1. Can be used across OSX and Linux easily 2. Can access the data on my iPad/iPhone easily 3. Auto mount on login and easy access to drives Yes it may be a little bit pricey but I have some shared info that I really do not trust to be up on 3rd party servers but I need access to across all my devices. The free version is great if you only want one huge encrypted drive but with the paid version £25you can have multiple drives (easier to manage in the advanced mode section). I love the fact it auto mounts the drives upon login and there is an easy access menu item for each drive (one of the clinchers for me buying the app). I created a few drives and was able to access them easily on Linux and my iPad, once the free iPad app unlocks the files you can open it using the normal app. The forum is very active and their support seems very quick to reply. Overall a great app for use with Dropbox if you value your information.
