Already with AppFlowy

If you've been using AppFlowy for some time, you can migrate your local data to AppFlowy Cloud. Navigate to Settings -> User -> Sign in with Google. After signing in, your local data will sync to your account.

Data encryption

To enable end-to-end encryption, navigate to Settings -> Sync Settings -> Toggle on Encrypt data. Once it is enabled, it can not be turned off. Ensure you store your encryption key securely.

As of now, AppFlowy saves the key on your local disk. If you delete AppFlowy's data folder, you will lose the encryption key, making it impossible to decrypt your data
