Meet NordLocker – the new file encryption solution by NordVPN

Cloud is a wonderful place to back up files, sync an endless reel of photo snaps, and store all other data when your device can’t hold anything more. However, cloud security is a different story. Can you trust the cloud service provider in keeping your data safe and private? You never know. That’s why we’re introducing NordLocker file encryption to keep your data safe at all times.

What is NordLocker

NordLocker is an encryption tool that adds a security layer to your data. It never stores your files anywhere – NordLocker isn’t cloud storage. Instead, it lets you keep them wherever you find convenient – cloud, your computer, external hard drive, or flash drive – only securely.

How-NordLocker-works

NordLocker is powered by state-of-the-art encryption. To guarantee ultimate security to your data, we use the most advanced ciphers and cryptography principles. That means elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) with XChaCha20, EdDSA, and Poly1305, plus Argon2, AES256 and other creations of modern cryptography. If you’re interested in tech specs, you can read all about that here.

We believe that anyone should be able to secure their data with encryption, regardless of their tech skills. To make it happen, we followed the best usability practices when designing NordLocker apps for Mac and PC. The result? Securing your files with leading-edge encryption is as easy as drag and drop.

Why you need NordLocker

Protecting files in the cloud

When you upload a file to the cloud, you lose control over it. Most cloud companies let their systems see and process your data. It means that you can never be sure if your files aren’t accessed without your knowledge or even shared with third parties.

But there’s a solution: end-to-end encryption. Encrypting your files with NordLocker before you upload them to the cloud lets you stay in control. With the encrypted data sitting comfy in the cloud, you can enjoy peace of mind.

Secure data sharing

If you’re a health professional, researcher, scientist, programmer, lawyer, or other specialist working with sensitive data, you need maximum confidentially when it comes to sharing it.

When you encrypt a file with NordLocker, you can choose specific people who will be able to decrypt it. This way, you can be sure that no one will take a peek if they’re not supposed to.

Try NordLocker right away

Download the app for macOS or Windows, set up your account, and test NordLocker out! If you’re a NordVPN user already, it’s even easier – simply log in with your NordVPN account credentials.
