Move automaticaly files/folder on vault


Is possible to move or copy files/folders on android local vault (vault locked) ?

If I try files on android explorer to cryptomator, cryptamor need to unlock vault.

I try to create automatic backup my android files with cryptamor and FolderSync on my android phone. I think is not possible because locked/unlocked is a security mecanism ?

Many thanks.


Hey and welcome to the community :slightly_smiling_face:!

It is a security mechanism but you can set automatic-locking to Never as wells as disable the setting automatic-locking When screen is disabled in the Cryptomator for Android settings, see

Okay, but on android I don’t acces on my vault with my files Explorer. I think is not possible ?

Yes, it is not yet possible to access the content of the vault using a file explorer but it will be as soon as Allow vault access by other apps through Document Provider is implemented.

Thank you for you reply fast :slight_smile:

We’re currently working on open sourcing the Android app but this will be one of the next big features.
