    Hello!

    I have been using Boxcryptor 2.1 on mobile to decrypt/encrypt a single text file containing my passwords.
    Unfortunately, opening this same file with boxcryptor app (works like file manager) in Docs (google), leaves a recent open files, only now it remains unencrypted! Right in Docs start page. That's simply awful! It's not a Boxcryptor problem at all, I guess. It works decypting; encrypting in background (on the run?/ on the go?) as it intended to, either way, What should be workaround for this?

    Do you have a parallel; working suggestion I could use to secure my pass-file?

    There is so many entries, it would be impracticable to use a password manager app. Also I think there is no chance of importing since it is in text format extension (rtf in desktop, docx in android).
