EU Flag

Made in europe, for your privacy, security & peace of mind.
We can't read your documents, see your photos or videos, and no one else can either.


Google announced that, as of June 1st, “unlimited” was being changed to “up to 15GB on your Google account.” ... If you're a Google Photos user who finds all of this a bit irritating, you may be thinking of leaving ... If you're concerned about privacy and like the idea of encryption, an open-source service called Cryptee, which is based in Estonia, offers to keep all your photos encrypted using AES-256.

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.

easy to use

we believe that state-of-the-art security shouldn't be hard to use. you can use cryptee on any device using your favorite web browser. you can also install cryptee's app to use it even when you're offline. cryptee is a progressive web app (pwa), so you can install it on your device, straight from your browser with one tap.

open source

we 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 privacy

we are based in estonia, europe. named "the most advanced digital society in the world" by wired, and a country where there are self-driving public busses and food delivery robots. because estonia is outside of the 14-eyes countries, we have greater protection from mass surveillance and corporate espionage.

bulletproof security

your data is for your eyes only. all your documents, notes, photos, and files are encrypted using aes256 before leaving your devices. It would take a supercomputer millions of years to crack open your data. we can't read your documents or see your photos, and no one else can either.

ultimate deniability

protect 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.

anonymous sign up

all 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.

multiple login methods

you can sign up anonymously using a regular username & password, email & password or —if anonymity isn't a concern— with your google account.

gdpr compliant by design

your data leaves your device fully encrypted, and only you have the keys. since even we can't access your data, and only you can, based on gdpr article 25, cryptee is gdpr compliant, and provides “data protection by design and by default". we do not use any cookies or trackers. and you can download and see all data associated with your account from your account settings at any time. you can read more about this in our easy-to-read privacy policy.

cryptee is incorporated, engineered and designed to provide you the ultimate privacy and security. all parts of cryptee's systems are designed around this.

that being said, 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. to learn more about what threats cryptee can and can't protect your data from:

read our threat model

on device encryption

your files and photos never leave your device unencrypted. they are encrypted at all times using AES-256, with your encryption key, which we do not have access to. with cryptee, your data privacy and security is mathematically ensured using client-side encryption. we can't see the contents of your files or photos. only you can.

optional deniability

cryptee is built to protect you against forceful access to your account. we know that there could come a day when someone coerces you to log in and unlock your data. our "ghost folders" feature is here to protect you in these tough situations, where there is an asymmetry of power. if you "ghost" a folder or album, it will be removed from your account until you type its name again. this means that even if you are forced to give a third party the keys to your account, your most sensitive data will still be safe and you can deny the existence of certain files, photos, folders and albums.

no personal information required

we don't track or log any user activity, nor do we require you to use an email address or any other form of personally identifiable information to sign up and use cryptee.

no analytics, cookies or trackers

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.

no third party components

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.

no advertisements, ever.

we can't, we don't and we won't serve you any advertisements. we hate ads as much as you do.
