Those are the issues where I have accepted my faith currently and decided to not waste too much time but life with sub-optimal compromises.


End-to-end encryption

I personally find their communication concerning end-to-end encryption on their website very misleading. It has been in Alpha for a very long time now.

Looking forward to an initial release that has worked out some of the current main issues:


Missing EXT4 filesystem support

Does not support EXT4 filesystem – unless rooted. Did root my phone but switched back as I am a big fan of OTA updates directly from Google.

No native Encfs support

Supports Encfs only through third party apps.

Chrome OS

No Encfs support

Does not support Encryption (Encfs): see open issue in Chrome OS bug tracker

Workaround is to go through installing a supported GNU/Linux distribution via Crouton (quite the overkill solution) or use beta Linux integration (much less overhead but does not integrate into Chrome OS filesystem/file manager… also copying between the two systems was very slow on my system).
