WebDAV authentication error


I am having some difficulties with connecting to my Cryptomator data files in my account using webdav (, getting an error message: WebDAV could not be authenticated


Please read this

Disclaimer: I am not using and thus cant try it. maybe an other user managed to get a connection, but from my point of view it seems like does not have interest in providing a reliable WebDAV connection

For me important notes:

Note: Web browser access is not supported. You must use a WebDAV client.

As of October 25, 2019, Box has ended WebDAV support. If you have been using WebDAV you can continue to use it, as described in this article below. But we are no longer resolving any issues that may arise as a result.

[Jan 2022] TOTP-based Multi Factor Authentication (with Authenticator App) is not supported with WebDAV. Chose SMS-based Multi Factor Authentication instead.

Hi Michael,

Thank you so much. Changing TOTP-based Multi Factor Authentication with SMS-based Multi Factor Authentication instead, has resolved the issue. All good now.



Thanks, just added the info to
