I have installed Cryptomator for Windows 10 and Cryptomator for Android and I’ve been playing with them. I have some questions that I’m hoping someone can help me with.
I have been looking for a solution to encrypt files before uploading to the cloud. I currently am using a cloud provider that offers the ability to make their cloud storage appear like a drive on my computer so any files I drop in there are automatically uploaded to the cloud storage and do not take up any space on my PC. Cryptomator works like a charm on that virtual drive. I was able to encrypt, decrypt and launch the file directly from the virtual drive.
I tried the Android app and I noticed that the file I was playing with was downloaded on to my device, which I guess makes sense. My questions are as follows:
- I assume that the file is downloaded to my device in encrypted form then decrypted locally, is that correct?
- After I finished with the file I was looking for it on my device because I wanted to delete it from local storage but I could not find it, where can I find it?
- Presumably the file downloaded the encrypted filename. Is that correct? Does that mean that anyone who is casually looking at my device would not be able to open that file without first starting Cryptomator?
