Decrypt encrypted files using browser EncFS: EncFSAnywhere




EncFS is another way to encrypt files. I use EncFS for example, some data in my dropbox , which should not be completely stored unencrypted there. Unlike TrueCrypt I do not need a container with a certain file size here. To access the encrypted files, you usually requires an installed version of EncFS on the local machine. But if you have only a browser to access the files, possibly, the service EncFSAnywhere something for you.

EncFS Anywhere

EncFSAnywhere is open source and can be self-hosted by you. An example can be found here on this website . You can connect to you through the Service to your Dropbox. Once you grant access sets of services under a separate folder in your Dropbox from the apps.

In this folder then come into it with your EncFS encrypted folder. Then calls the appropriate website where you have just granted access to Dropbox and you see the appropriate folder. When you want to open it directly you will be asked for your password for the encrypted files, as you see in the picture above.

After entering you can therefore read access to your files. The password will remain on your computer and the files are also decrypted only locally. Worked perfectly in my case and you can watch it once in when needed. Currently only supports Dropbox as cloud storage, but more services might follow.
