Press Release - 2015-03-30

This new encryption app can be used alone or as a service by other apps to help you encrypt and decrypt your sensitive data on the go

Prague, CZ — March 30, 2015

24U Software announces an immediate availability of Cryptor - a new mobile application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Cryptor can encrypt or decrypt the current contents of the user's clipboard as well as data provided to it by other applications through an URI or HTTP request, making it, besides others, a great companion for FileMaker® Go.

Main features:

  • Encrypt/decrypt clipboard to protect any text or image manually
  • Multiple encryption keys allow for sending encrypted data to someone else
  • URI scheme lets other apps (such as FileMaker Go) easily use Cryptor as a service
  • Built-in HTTP server can provide the service from background

How Cryptor works

Cryptor lets the user create multiple encryption keys and then use them to encrypt and decrypt data. User can choose which key will be used for encryption, and Cryptor automatically identi!es the correct key to use for decryption as long as it is installed.

Cryptor responds to URI queries from other apps to let them use it as a service. Launching a properly constructed URI from a different app will switch over to Cryptor, encrypt or decrypt data, and switch back to the requesting app.

Cryptor also includes a built-in HTTP server to allow other apps on the same device to repeatedly use its services without constantly switching between the client app and Cryptor, which would be very inconvenient for the user. Due to the restrictions for iOS, the HTTP server can be started by a single URI request and remains active for a limited time after Cryptor gets switched to background.

Cryptor was primarily designed to be a great companion for FileMaker Go, which does not have its own native functions for strong encryption on demand, but it can be well used as a service by other apps as well.
