Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Your Digital File so secure?
Advanced patented encryption – Your Digital File gives each of your confidential documents an extra layer of security, called Cryptoloc. Cryptoloc is our patented two-stage encryption technology that uses a unique, complex combination of state-of-the-art Cryptography algorithms. It delivers unmatched security and integrity for every document.
Privacy and Control – Your Digital File uses client-side cryptography to deliver document privacy and control. The digital keys required for document encryption and decryption are managed client-side and all document encryption and decryption occurs on your device. This means your documents are always encrypted before uploading to Your Digital File and cannot be viewed by unauthorised parties – not even by Your Digital File. You control your information – who can access it and how it is accessed.
Eliminate identify fraud – Digital signatures are based on 100-point proof of identity. No one can sign, or even access your documents, without their identity being verified.
Share with confidence – Choose who can access your documents and grant permission levels. You control who can update, sign or view documents. Your Digital File cannot view your documents.

Why do I need to verify my identity?
Before you can share or sign a document you need to verify your identity by providing a standard 100-point identity check. This is to ensure user identity and integrity to maintain confidence when sharing and signing documents.
You will be prompted to verify your identity once you have signed up. A processing fee of $10 is required.
What do I do if “I’ve lost my Private Key”
If you do lose Your Private Key – it’s OK, we can generate a new one. On the login page, click on Can’t login? Account Recovery, and click on the I’ve lost my Private Key button. Follow the prompts to begin the Private Key Recovery process.
Due to the time and effort involved, there will be a recovery fee, our support staff will discuss this with you once you begin the recovery process.
What happens if I can’t access my account?
Begin the Account Recovery process to create a new Private Key and reset your password. We do not have access to your password or files, nor can we reset your password.
Your Digital File will never contact you to request your password.
A fee will be charged if your account needs to be recovered.
When you sign up to Your Digital File as a business user, you will be required (as the business account administrator) to create both a Business Account and a Recovery account.
If a staff member loses their account login credentials (password and/or private key), they must use the Account Recovery process. We do not have access to your password or files, nor can we reset your password. The account recovery process will create a new private key and let the staff member enter a new password.
The business account administrator must then access the Recovery Account to finalise the process.
Can my files be recovered?
Yes, previous versions or deleted files can always be securely recovered.
