The main difference between a Pro space. and a Personal space. is where the data is stored.
In both cases, they are end-to-end encrypted and stored only with the person responsible for them (no cloud, no data outsourcing), but this responsibility differs:
- for personal use, you are solely responsible for your identifiers and your data is only kept on your devices
- for professional use, it is your employer who entrusts you with identifiers to access your various business tools and this data is only stored on a server of his choice (nothing is kept on the devices).
Your data is only stored on your device, and nowhere else. In case it is lost/stolen/broken, then you have
three ways to recover your data:
. from another of your previously synchronized devices (just revoke the offending device and synchronize the new one in case of replacement)
. from a backup with one of your trusted contacts who is also an UpSignOn user with whom you have set up a backup (see "Menu / Data backup options")
. from a copy of your space that you manage manually (see "Menu / Other settings and features / Export my passwords")
No one but you can read your data; they are only accessible from your synchronized devices: to access them, you must both have physical access to your device and be able to unlock it. And if you also lock your Personal space. with a password (which we strongly recommend as soon as you are comfortable enough), then this represents a third barrier to cross.
Actually, your data does pass through our server, but only temporarily and fully encrypted. They are stored there until your devices are all updated, but we do not keep them beyond these exchanges; as soon as all your devices have retrieved them, they are deleted from the server. Most of the time, there is therefore no data stored on the server. In addition, only new data (created or modified) is transmitted: by synchronizing your devices, you only send data that changes to the server (except in the case of pairing a new device where you send course all data). Finally, of course, all these exchanges are fully encrypted and the encryption key is only known to your devices (end-to-end encryption). We ourselves are completely incapable of deciphering them, by design.
Your trusted contacts only have access to the identifiers that you share with them. By adding one of your relatives as a trusted contact, you create a secure and reciprocal exchange channel between your Personal space. and his own, but without sharing any data by default. You must explicitly choose an account in your list of identifiers and passwords in order to share only this one with your trusted contact. And even in the event that you choose to set up a backup of your Personal space. with a trusted contact (which we strongly recommend you do as soon as possible), then the latter is only storing encrypted data that only you will be able to decipher.
