Cryptee - A secure alternative to Evernote & Google Photos

If you are looking for a secure alternative to Evernote & Google Photos, Cryptee offers users peace of mind with zero-knowledge encryption for all of the personal files. Zero-knowledge encryption is great for user privacy because all files are encrypted on the users device before they are uploaded onto the Cryptee servers. As these files are encrypted on the deivce, the team at Cryptee & hackers cannot spy on your files. If a government three letter agency seized Cryptee's servers, they cannot read the contents of your files, meaning you are the only one with access.
