Cloud Management

How to handle cloud services with Android

In “Cloud Services”, you can create or edit the connection between the Cryptomator app and your storage provider accounts.

Please enter the credentials for your provider account or in case of Google Drive choose your account. If your authentication was successful, some of the providers might ask you to grant Cryptomator access permission to your online files. Please allow this permission.

In Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropox you can only create one connection between your cloud storage account and the Cryptomator app. You can’t connect to (for example) two different Dropbox accounts.

If the provider requested permission to access your online files you can remove Cryptomator permissions from your online storage account at any time. Please keep in mind that Cryptomator then cannot connect to your vault anymore.
