How do I attach encrypted files to my notes?

You can use the Files feature available on web, desktop, and mobile, to upload files to your account and attach them to notes. Files are end-to-end encrypted using the same technology powering the encryption of your notes.

You can upload any file format, including photos, videos, PDFs, zips, and more.

Files are presently an "outside-of-editor" experience, meaning that encrypted photos and videos cannot be embedded directly inside of a note. The ability to embed photos inside of editors is on our feature roadmap.
