What is a locker?

A locker is NordLockers’s encrypted folder. It contains your files as well as the configuration data. This is also the reason why you need to compress the locker before you send it as an email attachment. We highly recommend accessing your lockers only through the NordLocker app. Messing with your lockers through other programs may damage the configuration files and corrupt your encrypted data permanently.

Currently, NordLocker offers two types of lockers:

  • Local - files encrypted in the local locker are stored locally on your device;
  • Cloud - files are encrypted in the cloud server as well, which means you will be able to reach them using other devices.

No one except you can access the files you put in a Locker unless you give access to other people through the Add user access option in the NordLocker application.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Customer Success team.
