made in europe, for your privacy & peace of mind. cryptee is a private & encrypted place to write personal documents, notes or journals, and store your photos & other files. we can't read your documents or see your photos, and no one else can either.
as the troves of data instagram and facebook hold on users increasingly become tools of election manipulation and subject to data breaches, it’s more important than ever we have a good handle on what these tech giants know about us, said john ozbay, ceo of cryptee, and challenge them to share more.
because cryptee does not store any unencrypted data, it cannot be asked to give it to state entities. in other words, there is no way for anyone — the government, cryptee, or advertisers — to read what is kept in your journal.
when it comes to security, this app is state of the art. when making this app, the developers thought about every aspect of security and have taken every precaution to make it as secure as possible.
cryptee's policy is that state-of-the-art security shouldn't be hard to use. therefore, you can use it on any device without any kind of installation. all you need is a browser.

bulletproof securityyour data is for your eyes only. your documents, notes, photos, and files are all encrypted using aes256 before leaving your devices. It would take a supercomputer millions of years to crack open your data. and even we can't see the contents of your data.
ultimate deniabilityprotect your data from unfriendly eyes with our unique ghost folders feature. even if someone asks you to log in to your account in front of them, your most sensitive files will remain hidden. plus, we don't require you to download any apps, so nobody will know you use cryptee by looking at your app download history.
multiple authentication methodsyou can sign up anonymously using a regular username & password, email & password or —if anonymity isn't a concern— with your google account.
anonymous sign upall you need is a username. we do not require you to provide any personal identifiers, like an email address or phone number, to create an account with us.
easy to usewe believe that state-of-the-art security shouldn't be hard to use. you can use cryptee on any device, without any software install, straight from your web browser. to use cryptee like a regular app, even when you're offline, you install the progressive web app (pwa) from your browser with one tap, to your phone's home screen.
open sourcewe believe that you shouldn't have to trust our word when it comes to security. you should be able to personally verify it. that is why we made cryptee open-source, so that you can read line by line, how cryptee works and how your data is secured.
locational privacywe are based in estonia, europe. named "the most advanced digital society in the world" by wired, and a country where the government runs on blockchain. because estonia is outside of the 14-eyes countries, we have greater protection from mass surveillance and corporate espionage.

cryptee is incorporated, engineered and designed to provide you the ultimate privacy and security. every part of our system is designed around this. most web services rely on third party platforms like zendesk for their customer support. to make sure that even your customer support interactions remain private on cryptee, we built our own customer support system.
we don't have any analytics, cookies or trackers on our platform. even on our landing page! we've built our own mini statistics engine, which gives us the most basic information about the number of visitors we get, and that's it.
security is a tricky topic with lots of intricate details. if you wish to read more about how our security works, we have a dedicated page detailing all the security measures we employ.

truth is, no company or service can secure and protect your data from all threats. there are many things cryptee can protect you from, but if you're planning on being the next snowden, we wouldn't suggest you to use our service. however if you are a high-profile celebrity, business-person or a lawyer who wants to keep their data safe, or just someone who wants to keep their documents/files and photos away from prying eyes, cryptee is perfect for you.
to learn more about what threats cryptee can and can’t protect your data from:
read our threat model
imagine handing your private photos to a friend and saying “don't show these to anyone else." if your friend is trustworthy, they won't show the photos to others. but they can still look at them. worse, if thieves break into their home, they can see your photos too. this is how storage works on all unencrypted cloud-based services, like dropbox, evernote or google photos. companies can see your files, and if they get hacked —which many companies do— hackers can see your files too.
now imagine putting your photos in a box, locking it with a key only you have and giving this box to your friends saying “don't give this box to anyone else". your friends won't be able to look at the photos, can’t show them to others, and if thieves break into their house, they can't open the box or see the photos either. because only you have the keys. this is how encrypted storage works.
with cryptee, your data is protected with the strongest possible encryption. cracking this encryption mathematically would take millions of years, even with a supercomputer. we don't have your encryption keys, so we can't see or open your files. even if we get hacked, the hackers can't see or open your files either.
