Since one of the key features of NeoOffice Mobile is that it provides a secure place to store your documents, we take security very seriously. In order to improve security, Tim has done some great work and implemented encryption of all uploaded files.

With this new feature, all files will be encrypted using a powerful encryption algorithm immediately after they are uploaded to our servers. This will causes all copies of the files that we store in Amazon S3 and in our backups to also be encrypted. Not only does this lower the risk of storing your documents in Amazon S3, but it also prevents accidental viewing of your documents that could occur during our routine server maintenance.

Unfortunately, to enable this feature, we must delete all existing unencrypted files that are in the NeoOffice Mobile test system so in the next few hours you will see all documents in the test system disappear. You will not need to recreate your account as we are only removing unencrypted files.

Sorry for any inconvenience this upgrade may cause, but we felt that this is a critical feature and so we wanted to enable this feature while everyone is still using only the test system.

I will post an update when the upgrade is done.

FYI. The test servers are now fully upgraded and the new file encryption feature should be fully operational.

Please note that you will see no files listed in your NeoOffice Mobile account after this upgrade as I have deleted all of the unencrypted files from Amazon S3 and our servers.

Please let us know if you have trouble uploading or viewing new files.
