This app is a client for the Tresorit cloud storage service, which has been designed with privacy and security as priorities.

On the Tresorit website the developers tempt hackers with a financial reward if they crack the servers, which might not be the best idea if you want to convince potential users that your service is secure. The free plan offers 5 GB of storage and you can quickly double that by downloading this app. If you don’t have an account already, you can sign up directly in the app but make sure that you write down your password.

That’s because the company behind Tresorit claims to keep its distance from your data and therefore won’t recover it. Once your account is set up, the Tresorit app acts like those available for most other cloud storage services. You can set up folders or access any you have turned into ‘tresors’ on an internet-connected PC or Mac somewhere.

You can also upload and download files and invite others to collaborate, all while you data are protected by superior encryption.
