We keep your files! But not your keys!
With our “Zero Knowledge” Design Architecture the encryption process takes place locally, so we have no way of knowing what your files are.
Essentially, your data is completely private because you’re the only person who knows what’s being encrypted and transmitted. The only unencrypted versions live on your local computer. Also, since your data is encrypted locally with a key you choose, we have absolutely no way of decrypting them to see what’s in your data store.
At the same time, this also means that if you lose your keys/password, UpCrypted can’t retrieve it—or decrypt your locked files—for you.
Losing your keys will result complete loss of your files!
Actually, your encrypted files will be there, but nobody will be able to decrypt them and recover them!
