As part of our mission to keep your data safe for the next hundred years, we want to ensure you have the right tools to handle worst-case scenarios.

The encryption algorithms involved in securing your data are completely open-source and non-proprietary, so you don't have to rely on us for your data to be safe and valid.

To further your protections against general disruptions in your network or ours, we've created a single page offline decryption tool that can run in any browser.

Decrypting a Backup Offline

1. Download the offline decrypt script.

Always make sure you get this script from a trusted source, such as our website.

2. Open the file with a web browser.

Creating Backups

There are two ways to create backups of your note data:

1. Manual: In the "Account" menu of the Standard Notes app, in the lower left corner, you will see options for downloading encrypted or decrypted archives of your data.

2. Automatic: Our Extended subscription creates automatic and real-time backups of all your data to your Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive, with other cloud providers being added soon.
