PRIVACY ArDrive offers the ability to have both public and private storage folders. Private Drives are personal and are encrypted so no one else in the world can view them. Public Drives are open and accessible forever. ArDrive does not store your personal information and does not have access to your password or your files. This means there's no password-recovery feature in ArDrive! So make sure to keep your password in a secure. If you lose it, there's no way to recover it. That's how seriously we take the privacy of your data. SECURITY ArDrive uses industry-leading encryption to keep your private files private. We use AES-256-GCM to encrypt files, the standard for top-secret information used by military organizations. If a better standard emerges, we will upgrade our platform to ensure that the security of your data is assured. LEARN MORE Are my files encrypted? Can I make private files public?
