Suggestions For Use

Cyphertite was built with security as a top priority. That being said, some important practices should be followed while using the software. This is important to protect your sensitive data from being viewed by unauthorized people, and to ensure you will be able to decrypt your data in the event of a hardware failure.

  1. Choose a complex account password, memorize it.
  2. Choose an even more complex cyrpto passphrase (20+ characters, capitals, lower case, and special characters suggested). Memorize it.
  3. After your first backup operation is complete make a copy of your ct_crypto file. Store this file in a secure off site location. Your data cannot be retrieved and decrypted without this file. (we cannot help you re-create this file if it is lost as we do not keep this information on our systems)
  4. Read our FAQ at Cyphertite.com for more information.
