When transferring and sharing files, it’s unsettling to think that my files are moving somewhere.
Filekiwi is making every effort to protect user privacy.
Encryption begins the moment the user selects a file. (128-bit AES-GCM)
The encryption process takes place in your browser, so no one, including Filekiwi, can know it.
Encrypted files are uploaded and stored on the Filekiwi server. The content, file title, and preview image are all encrypted.
When the sender shares the file box address with the recipient, it includes the key. (The part after the # in the address.)
The recipient uses this key to decrypt and save the file.
This process also occurs in the recipient’s browser.
When the browser makes a request to the server, it does not send anything after the #. Thus, even if the network administrator monitors it, they cannot know the key value.
Only people who know the folder address can access the files.
All files stored on the server will be completely deleted automatically after 90 hours.
However, if you purchase an Unlimited Webfolder, you can extend the destruction date further.
