When trying to access either my iCloud vault or DropBox vaults, I’m getting this warning now from Cryptomator:
Do you want to send your name and
password in a way that is insecure?
The URL provided uses an unsecured
method for network communication. To
jse a secure connection, you must use a
server that supports SSL.
I’ve tried force-quitting it, re-downloading the same version (1.5.12), but I keep getting the same warnings when I try to open vaults.
Seems like this:
Hey, it’s always nice to have some text
for example which macOS are you using? or which cryptomator version?
But nonetheless, this is already known to us. The reason of this message is the following.
Cryptomator uses WebDAV, a filesystemprovider over the network, to show an unencrypted view on your vault. Therefore we have to communicate over the network interface of your pc with itself (no connection to the outer world), the so called localhost.
Network connections can be validated th…
Using Mac OS 11.2.1. Latest Cryptomater version (1.5.12). What was noteworthy about this warning dialog is that it never happened before yesterday. I’ve been a Cryptomator user for years so I thought it was worth checking out.
Since, as you say, this warning message isn’t anything to worry about, I wish I could simply disable it so I don’t have to click thorough it every time I open a vault.
We’re currently looking into it. There is actually a difference between Cryptomator 1.5.11 and 1.5.12 that I’ve noticed as well. But since Cryptomator is still only mounting the virtual drive on
localhost (i.e., locally on your computer), it’s not less secure than before. I’ve to admit though that this warning is misleading and could cause confusion.
Thanks for your kind reply!

‘What is causing this?
It only started yesterday after yrs. of 0 problems.’
Is downloading and installing fuse still the go to option, or can I ignore this warning and proceed with connecting? The article is from 2019.
I see someone in the article stated there was no security issue due to a feedback loop.
I am non-technical.
I am attempting to login to cryptomator on my MacBook and receiving an “Unsecured Connection” error (see image). Even if I press Connect, which due to my lack of knowledge in these things I am not sure is advisable I am unable to access my encrypted folders as it says “Unlock failed. See log for details”. Where is the option to view the log? Any ideas why I am getting this error? I am currently unable to access my data on my MB so this is urgent. I am on version 1.4.11. Thanks in advance.
‘What is causing this?
We have found the issue and are preparing a hotfix. Please note that the security of your files were never compromised and the hotfix is only for not confusing/unsettle the users.
It is still valid, especially the answer of
@overheadhunter. Using fuse might be still interesting for you.
