How We Protect Your Files

Prepared.ly is designed with multiple layers of protection across a distributed, reliable infrastructure. Securely access files from desktop, web, and mobile.

How We Protect Your Privacy

It's our responsibility to protect your files from unauthorised access. We've designed policies and controls to safeguard the collection, use, and disclosure of your information.

How We Protect Your Account

Prepared.ly provides several layers of protection to your account from attacks. To help keep your files safe, enable two-step verification and monitor account activity.

Protecting Your Files

Not Just Traditional Encryption

Prepared.ly encrypts all your files in transit and at rest. 

Each file is encrypted twice, once before transmission, and once after, using AES-256 GCM encryption.

This means that if someone got access to our servers and then tried to perform a brute-force attack (hack it) using the worlds most powerful supercomputer, it would take approximately ~12.7e40 times longer than the age of the universe attack to gain access to your data.

Constant Testing

We regularly test our infrastructure and app to identify and patch vulnerabilities. We also work with third-party specialists, industry security teams, and the security research community to keep our users and their files safe. 

Protecting Your Privacy

Security

Hiding in Plain Sight

Prepared.ly, as much as possible, obfuscate’s your data (makes it unreadable). Not just what you upload, but your personal information too. This means not only could a hacker not see your information – we can’t either!

Hard-line Policies

We made a decision – privacy & security is important. Therefore, we would rather lose your data than have it stolen. As a result, from ground up, our systems in place hold to this philosophy. Encryption, obfuscation and non-retrieval are corner stones of our programming philosphy.

Protecting Your Account

Access

Strong Passwords

One of the biggest weak points in account security is users choosing weak, easily crackable passwords – especially when they share them with other services. A good password is one that’s easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess. As a result, we enforce strong password generation to keep your account safe from prying eyes.

Two-Factor Authentication

Two-Factor authentication adds an additional layer of protection to your account. Each time you log in, Prepared.ly will require a further 6-digit code via your preferred TFA method. This prevents someone from gaining access to your account even if they somehow gained access to your password.
