Last week we added a new user guide to the PowerFolder Wiki on how to use Boxcryptor to add end-to-end encryption (E2EE) to PowerFolder:

End-to-end encryption is recommended for folders containing highly sensitive content. An additional encryption password is required to access its contents. The files are available on smartphones, tablets, desktop PCs and notebook.

Even without end-to-end encryption files in PowerFolder get encrypted before they leave the client. In addition all files are stored encrypted in the cloud (at rest). PowerFolder is secured through industrial security standards (AES, RSA, SHA).

Always remember: Any password based security is only as strong as your password. Adding technology does not automatically increase security if a weak password is chosen. Always choose strong passwords (Tips and Tricks).
