Local keys

Note: Local keys cannot be used with SafeGuard Synchronized Encryption.
Local keys can be used for encrypting files in specified directories on a removable device or a cloud storage provider. These drives must be included in an encryption policy already.

To create a local key:

  1. Open the system menu and select Create Local Keys.
  2. Choose a name and a passphrase for your key and click OK.
    The key name will be prefixed with "Local_" and postfixed with date and time.
The local key is created and displayed in the preference pane. The user can now apply the local key to a removable device or a cloud directory.
