How to set up Google Drive encryption

A quick guide on setting up folder encryption

1. If you haven’t already, download and install Syncdocs.

2. Right click on any file or folder and select the option “Encrypt to Google Drive”


3. If this is the first time you’ve encrypted with Syncdocs you’ll be asked to enter a password.

4. That’s it – you’re done. All files in these folders will be encrypted online with secure AES256 encryption, and only available on your PC.

If you look at encrypted folder on your PC it will have a lock icon.

while online, all your files in this folder will have “g_encrypt…” appended to their name.

Syncdocs encryption is transparent, once set up, your files are automatically encrypted online, and decrypted on your PC.

You can securely share the contents to anyone you wish to authorize, and if they have Syncdocs and they will automatically get the files, otherwise we also have a stand-alone decryption app.
