How secure is AnoFile?

Extremely secure, we use AES-256-bit encryption also known as Military grade encryption. This is the most secure form of file encryption used by big companies , governments and intelligence agencies.

Even your file name and the type of file you upload is not saved on the cloud where we save your encrypted upload content. We use seperate database to securely store your encryption key and other file related information.


What is AES 256 bit encryption?

AES refers to Advanced Encryption Standard. 256 bit stand for the key used to encrypt your file is of size 256 bits or 32 bytes. The AES-256-bit is extremely secure and complicated. Once you go beyond the surface-level, “it scrambles data and makes it unreadable,” encryption is an incredibly complicated subject. AES uses symmetric key encryption, which involves the use of only one secret key to cipher and decipher information. It supports the largest bit size and is practically unbreakable by brute force based on current computing power, making it the strongest encryption standard. AES would take billions of years to break using current computing technology. Hackers would be foolish to even attempt this type of attack.

Simply means in todays modern computer power, it is impossible to break AES 256 encrypted file or data.
