Easy to Navigate

Ant Wipes

A very people friendly app. Not complicated, but refreshingly easy to understand and use. Photos are backed up in Original High Quality. Thanks!

Seamless and easy!


The Upthere app takes care of my photos effortlessly!

Great BUT


I love the app, its fast and reliable BUT I hate that there is NO encryption at rest! I can’t trust my private photos and files to some tehnician without encrypting to protecting my private stuff. Sorry. But the app and service is amazing!

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback, we’re glad you’re enjoying your Upthere service! Any data shared between your device and our datacenter is encrypted through an HTTPS connection; as you noted, we don’t currently provide encryption at rest. Although we may decide to provide encryption at rest in the future, we believe the odds of data being physically stolen to be minimal (since we operate our physical datacenter ourselves).

Part of what makes Upthere fast and powerful is its ability to index any kind of document and generate file previews. This lets you see the contents of a file without needing to download it first. If we encrypted the data at rest, we could not extract any metadata or generate a file preview, nor would the encrypted file be findable by our search features. In such a scenario, the only way you could see your content would be to download the entire file and decrypt it on your local device.

Hope this helps - please contact us at for any additional questions or feedback you have.
