Wayfarer GPX – Travel Time Estimation Tool for Android

1. App-level encryption

When you first sign in to the GPX Cloud, a personal security key is created to encrypt your data on your end before it reaches the cloud. This ensures that you’re the only one who’ll be able to read it. Your key is safeguarded within your device by the Android KeyChain.

A backup copy of the key is stored in a protected folder in your Google Drive account, separately from your data in the Cloud. This backup key cannot be accessed normally via the Google Drive app, the file system, or by using any other app.

2. Cloud-level encryption 

Your data is also encrypted server-side before being stored as a standard feature of Google Cloud services.

3. Google Cloud-Powered Access Control 

The Wayfarer GPX Cloud is powered by Google, which we’ve chosen for their cutting-edge security practices and superb reliability. Any user who accesses the cloud is required to authenticate with a Google Account and is restricted to only be able to access their own data.
