How do I access encrypted photos & videos using PhotoSync?

Step 1

Tap the red sync button and then tap Receive and then the service (e.g. SMB) that you want to access. Services that have an encryption configuration have a padlock symbol.

Step 2

You now need to authenticate using FaceID / TouchID or using the passcode you supplied during configuration.

Step 3

You can now browse the service. If you enabled "Encrypt directory names", these will be indicated with a padlock symbol. Encrypted photos & videos are also indicated with a padlock symbol. You can now browse, view and download encrypted photos & videos and PhotoSync will decrypt them on the fly providing a seamless experience.
