      Most users think VeraCrypt is a great alternative to Cryptomator.

      JohnFastman Veracrypt is a program for creating an encrypted container in which you can hide files protected by various encryption algorithms. It is excellent and extremely useful, but not for syncing files to the cloud because files you change inside the veracrypt container won't be seen to change by an external sync program. Veracrypt addresses a different need to Cryptomator.

      This alternative is disputed. TrueCrypt is still a legitimate alternative to Cryptomator, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
    4. Tresorit is the end-to-end encrypted file sync and sharing solution which safeguards confidential information by design. Unlike other public cloud vendors, Tresorit has no access to users’ files, which ensures maximum confidentiality.

      Boxcryptor vs Cryptomator opinions
      Some users think Boxcryptor is a great alternative to Cryptomator, some don't.
      JohnFastman Boxcryptor is proprietary (closed source). Cryptomator is open source, which means you can check for backdoors and other insecurities. Cryptomator is also free and works on Linux, which Boxcryptor doesn't. Cryptomator is a Boxcryptor killer.

    5. CryptSync is a small utility that synchronizes two folders while encrypting the contents in one folder. That means one of the two folders has all files unencrypted (the files you work with) and the other folder has all the files encrypted.
