Viivo for Mac

By PKWARE Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 10, 2013

Viivo for Mac ensures your Dropbox files are encrypted prior to sharing them over the Web, adding an extra layer of security to your important documents. This app is easy to use and requires little to no user interaction. If you share a lot of files over the Internet using Dropbox, you will want to check it out.

After a quick and straightforward installation process, you have to create a free account to use Viivo for Mac. If the app doesn't detect Dropbox on your computer, you'll be asked to download and configure it. Just like Dropbox, Viivo is designed to run continuously in the background, encrypting and decrypting files in real time. It places an icon in the Menu Bar and automatically creates two folders -- one in Dropbox and one in your Home directory -- and does not allow you to change their locations. Although this application features notification alerts, they are not well integrated into the Notification Center, take too much screen space, and cannot be manually dismissed. While testing this application, we detected a delay during which the app fetches files from the Dropbox folder and decrypts them so they are ready to use. The delay depends on the file size and general system load, but on average we have experienced a 10 to 40 second delay.

If you use Dropbox and are looking for a way to secure the files you share across the Web, Viivo for Mac can be the right app for you. Although there are some areas that can be improved, this app lives up to its promises.
