Cryptomator is a free and open-source client-side encryption tool that can be used to encrypt files before uploading them to cloud storage services.
Here are the steps to install Cryptomator:
Go to the Cryptomator website.
Before you install the Cryptomator program, you can install macFUSE.
Please note that Cryptomator recommended macFuse for Intel and FUSE-T for Apple Silicon but I found that FUSE-T is still buggy. It is still tagged as experimental, so use it at your own risk. It gave me a panic attack when I saw less than half of my folders showed up after upgrading to a newer version of FUSE-T. Only after I switched back to macFUSE could I see the complete folders again.
Open the downloaded file and follow the installation wizard.
Once the installation is complete, launch Cryptomator.
Create a new vault by clicking on Create New Vault and selecting the location where you want to create it.
Set a password for the vault and click Create Vault.
Your new vault will now be visible in the Cryptomator interface. You can drag and drop files into it to encrypt them.
That’s it! You have successfully installed and set up Cryptomator.
If you find the software useful, you can help supporting it by purchasing a Supporter Certificate or Donation.
