End-to-end encryption means your data is encrypted before it leaves your device, and isn't decrypted until it is received by another of your devices. By setting up end-to-end encryption, you can be confident that your data is only readable when it's shown to you. The best part of all of this is that protecting your privacy doesn' mean giving up features. Everything you love about Pushbullet still works great even with end-to-end encryption set up!

Data is encrypted using AES-256 with GCM authentication. The password you enter is not stored and is used to derive an encryption key using PBKDF2. Pushbullet use symmetric encryption and your key isn't sent to the server (there isn't any server involvement at all).

How do I set it up?
Setting up end-to-end encryption is easy. All you need to do is pick a password and enter it on each device. Pushbullet use this password to derive a key that's used to encrypt your data. Your password isn't stored and it's important that Pushbullet don't know what it is, so you’ll need to do this manually for each device you have. To enter your password, go to the Settings screen of each of our apps. The new setting is labeled End-to-end encryption.

Quick note: Today, end-to-end encryption is supported in Android v16.5.4+, Chrome v264+, and Windows desktop app v360+. iOS support is ready for next update submission and Mac will be coming as soon as possible. Opera, Safari, and Firefox will be submitted shortly, after confirming things are working great in Chrome.
