One week after its launch, Google Drive seems to be a great cloud storage solution. But when using Google Drive, it is a great risk to the privacy and data security of your files – it’s ‘A toxic brew’.
After being able to encrypt your Google Drive with BoxCryptor for Windows, you can now also access your encrypted files in Google Drive on your Android device! We have just pushed a new version of BoxCryptor for Android to the Google Play Store which comes with support for Google Drive! Simply grant BoxCryptor for Android access to your Google Drive/Docs files by connecting it with Google Drive. Then you can access and store encrypted files in Google Drive just as you did before with Dropbox.In order to support Google Drive, BoxCryptor for Android needs to request the new permission “Your accounts”. This allows to retrieve your Google account information when – and only when – connecting to Google Drive. BoxCryptor for Android will not access this information at any other time. Also, please note that Google Drive support is in beta for the beginning. If you should encounter any problem, please contact us in the forums or submit a ticket. Get BoxCryptor for Android v1.2.1 in the Google Play Store or scan this QR-code:
PS: Of course, we also plan to support Google Drive on BoxCryptor for iOS as soon as possible.
