Cryptomator Onedrive

Posted : admin On 1/25/2022

Create vault with cryptomator (3.5 let some time pass). The latest Cryptomator 1.5.0 release comes with a full rewrite of the user interface, with the goal of making 'the onboarding process easier for users'.The vault unlock, vault add, and vault options have all been redesigned, and there's a new option to change the vault password.

In “Cloud Services”, you can create or edit the connection between the Cryptomator app and your storage provider accounts.

Please enter the credentials for your provider account or in case of Google Drive choose your account.If your authentication was successful, some of the providers might ask you to grant Cryptomator access permission to your online files.Please allow this permission.

In Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropox you can only create one connection between your cloud storage account and the Cryptomator app.You can’t connect to (for example) two different Dropbox accounts.

If the provider requested permission to access your online files you can remove Cryptomator permissions from your online storage account at any time.Please keep in mind that Cryptomator then cannot connect to your vault anymore.

Login Google Drive¶

Login WebDAV¶

You can find here a list of the most common WebDAV URLs.

Note

While creating the WebDAV connection, please make sure to add the root of the accessible stroge and don’t navigate directly into the vault.

Login Local Storage¶

There can be used two types of local storages:

  • “Default storage” : This is the default internal storage of the android phone.
  • “Custom location” : Using custom locatins you can access a vault stored on e.g. a removabal device like a SD card

The following pictures describes how to setup a custom location to access vaults stored on the SD card:

After creating the custom location, you can access it by clicking on the name of the location to add the vault or create a new vault.

Note

If you use a custom location please make sure to add the root folder of the storage like described in the pictures and don’t navigate directly into the vault.

In the next step, you will create the connection between the Cryptomator app and your storage provider account.

(In this example, Dropbox was chosen.)

Please enter the credentials for your provider account. If your authentication was successful, the provider might ask you to grant Cryptomator access permission to your online files.Please allow this permission.

Cryptomator uses the login process offered by the cloud providers.Any account information (e.g., tokens for remembering your login) is stored locally on your device and secured in the iOS keychain.In case of WebDAV, the credentials are stored in the iOS keychain.

You can only create one connection between your cloud storage account and the Cryptomator app for each provider.You can’t connect to (for example) two different Dropbox accounts.

You can remove Cryptomator permissions from your online storage account at any time.Please keep in mind that Cryptomator then cannot connect to your vault anymore.

Now that you’ve established a connection, you’ll create the actual vault.

In the first step, please enter a name for your new vault.This name will also be the folder name of your vault files in your online storage.

Then choose the location on your cloud storage where you want to have your encrypted vault files stored.
