What are “My Encryption Options”?

My Encryption Options is where you select whether you want the file to be decryptable by your account or devices.

Your account key encryption option is selected for encryption by selecting “Use Universal Account Key” and is highlighted in red below.

Your device key encryption option(s) are selected for encryption by selecting the device’s name. The example “Test Laptop” key is highlighted below in orange.

If you select your account key encryption option, you cannot select individual device encryption option(s). If you select the individual device encryption option(s), you cannot select the account key encryption option. You may select multiple device key encryption option(s).

We recommend using more than one device when using device level keys for encryption. Please also read Can I Lose my Files?.
