Secure Key Management

Hi everyone,

where do you store the cryptomator encryption key :old_key:?

Do you recommend me Cloud Storage (not stored with the encrypted data) to safe the key?

Regards

Hi. If you save your vault password (settings advanced unlock options), your password is stored in your systems keychain.
https://docs.cryptomator.org/en/latest/desktop/access-vault/#unlock-a-vault

The Masterkey file is always stored in the root folder of your vault.


If you are afraid to loose your Masterkey file and it’s backup file in your cloud storage and your local files, feel free to make additional backups of the Masterkey file wherever you want.
Please keep in mind that the Masterkey file changes every time you either change the password of your vault or make a Cryptomator app update that contains a vault format upgrade.

Dankeschön :slight_smile:
