To protect your files, ukeepit fragments them and encrypts each fragment with AES256 encryption before putting them on your favorite clouds. No single cloud has the whole file.
Encryption and splitting is the most secure way to protect your data on the clouds.
After the installation, only two pieces of information need to be entered:
Your password should be a long phrase. The longer it is the safer it is. You can use different cases, symbols, numbers, as well as spaces. All you files are encrypted using the key generated from this password. Once chosen, you should note the password and keep it safely.
Sure. UKeepIt splits files, encrypts each piece, and distributes the pieces on your storage locations. So there are three layers of security it provides: encryption, splitting, and distribution. If only one storage location is provided, you still get the protection of encryption and splitting, which more than what the best competing solutions can provide.
If you lose your password, you may not be able to decrypt the encrypted files when you set-up UKeepIt on a different machine. So please take care of it. However, if your original, unencrypted files are untouched, there is no reason to panic. Just re-encrypt all your files with a new password, and keep the password safely this time.
Yes. Click on the UKeepIt tray icon (bottom right on your Windows machine) and choose the option to change your password. You will be asked to enter your current password to change it to a different one.
Yes, when a file or a folder is added to an already encrypted folder, or a change is made to an existing file in the encrypted folder, these changes are automatically synchronized with the encrypted version on the storage locations.
The key is stored on your computer and is never sent anywhere.
This will only happen if your file is very large (more than 2GB). Otherwise, UKeepIt is quite fast at securing most files.
We use the trusted AES 256 encryption algorithm.
No, at the moment, UKeepIt only lets you encrypt folders. If you want to protect a files, place it in a folder and secure it using UKeepIt.
ukeepit is not affiliated with or endorsed by the companies providing the cloud services like Dropbox, Box, or Google drive.
ukeepit works with any storage location or device to which it is provided access.
