Data encryption

← All Topics

We strongly recommend that customers create and use strong passwords. Even the best security is foiled by a user choosing a weak or commonly-used password, such as 123456 or password.

eazyBackup always encrypts all user data before storing it, using strong AES-256-CTR with Poly1305 in AEAD mode with high-entropy random keys.

Encryption is enabled by default and cannot be disabled.

Encryption keys for your data are automatically generated and managed by the eazyBackup app. The data encryption keys are then encrypted against your backup account password, and stored on the Server.

This means that (A) eazyBackup is unable to decrypt data without the customer’s password; and (B) in the event of a customer PC loss, only the customer’s password is necessary to log in to the account and restore data.
