Can I send Sealit emails to someone who doesn’t use Sealit yet? arrow icon

Yes, you can. When they receive your Sealit email they will be invited to download the Sealit mobile app. Our app is completely free, and it is used for authenticating them and allowing them to view a secure email that you send.

Why do I need the Sealit mobile app and how does it enhance the safety of my data? arrow icon

The main purpose of the Sealit app is to provide seamless authentication of the person that is allowed to view certain secure data.

Password management can significantly affect productivity and safety. By using biometrics instead of passwords, we proved that data protection can be both simple and effective.

Here are some of the reasons why biometrics is superior to passwords:

1. It can’t be stolen from you2. You don’t need to store or remember complex codes3. You always have it with you.
Does Sealit store my personal data? arrow icon

Sealit doesn’t store any of your passwords or contact details.

When you connect your Outlook add-in to your Sealit account, we only store your email address. Sealit does not have access to the email password you type in while connecting your email with your email provider. This is enabled by using OAuth (open standard authorization framework for token-based authorization on the internet).

Once your email is connected to Sealit, contact details such as names, email addresses and profile images are fed from your email to your Sealit account. This allows Sealit to show you a suggestion box with contacts you might want to share file access with as you encrypt files in our desktop app. Sealit does not store any details about your contacts and uses them only to improve your user experience within Sealit app.

Should I always use encryption? arrow icon

You can – but you don’t have to. We suggest using Sealit to protect files and emails that contain confidential information.
