End-to-end Encryption

When you add a Journey Cloud Sync Drive, you will be prompted to turn on end-to-end encryption and add a passphrase to secure your drive. To read more about the technical details of Journey Cloud Sync's end-to-end encryption, please refer to this blog post.

Setup End-to-end Encryption

Add a new cloud service.
Select Journey Cloud Sync.
Enable end-to-end encryption.
Input a passphrase.

Enable/Disable End-to-end Encryption

End-to-end encryption can only be enabled or disabled if there are no entries in the drive.

Limitations of End-to-end Encryption

While your personal journaling content belongs solely to you, and the encrypted body text and media files of your entries are stored on the server, some metadata is excluded from encryption to maintain the app's basic functionality. This includes the display name of the drive and the date and time that journal entries are created.

It is important to note that once end-to-end encryption is turned on, this action cannot be reversed, and journal entries and data would be lost if the passphrase is forgotten.

You will also not be able to use the Search function & Odyssey AI on Journey if you opt to turn on end-to-end encryption, as this prevents Journey from indexing your journal entries.
