Step 5. Encrypt Files
If you want your files to be encrypted before uploaded to the FTP server, before uploading (Step 4
check the Encrypt
box in the screen center. You will be prompted to choose an Encryption Key
An encryption key is just like a password. The encryption process mixes it with the file content to make the file unreadable by others.
Each encryption key has a Key Name
. The key name is not used in encryption, but it can give your a hint when you
decrypt the files.
TIPS: As you do with choosing a password, pick a strong key, and a name that is easy to remember but not related
to the key itself.
