Encrypt uploads with Air Explorer

Encrypt uploads with Air Explorer

When you upload files or folders with Air Explorer you can encrypt them. It is very easy, you only have to activate the “Encrypt Uploads” button.

Then a window asks you about a password that you will need later to decrypt it.

With the new version of Air Explorer, you can encrypt file names. To view the file name, you can click on the button “View original file names for encrypted files”.The file is still encrypted but you can check the name.



When an encrypted file is download, it will be automatically unencrypted and the file name change to the original name.

    First, it’s – IMO – a must have functionnality, thanks :).

    Question: which algorithm and options are used for encrypt file and filename? I need to have a way to decrypt file and filename without Air Explorer. For exemple if I need to decrypt a file on another computer without Air Explorer.

    Remark: The Sync functionnality don’t encrypt file and filename. Need this functionnality to maintain a crypted folder backup on the cloud with Sync and Scheduler.
