Encryption is one of the most common ways to keep sensitive information safe from intruders. Encryption refers to the process of turning plain text into cipher text so that only those who have the key can decrypt it.
AES-256 bit encryption, also known as symmetric encryption algorithm, is a cipher used to encrypt and decrypt data safely. It was adopted by NSA (US National Security Agency) in 2005, and since then, it has become a security standard for VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), firewalls, and password managers.
Implementing AES-256 encryption in Locker
Locker uses AES-256 encryption with PBKDF2 to provide the strongest protection for your data. Even if hackers find their ways into your vault, it is still virtually impossible for them to decrypt the encrypted data without your Master Password.
