To share a file with someone, simply type their email and select “Encrypt”. You can choose to share the same file with multiple people

Once you click on "Encrypt", your encryption process will begin

File Decryption:

To decrypt the file from Sealit, you will need to authorize the decryption first. You will receive a notification request on your mobile device. Approve the decryption and the file will start to be decrypted if you have access to it

To access decrypted file, select the “Download file” button and your decrypted file will start downloading

You can use Sealit Portal to decrypt files on Mac, Windows, and Linux devices
