Document Scanner

Securely scan and upload documents to Tresorit.

Document Scanner

While it’s hard for us to imagine working without our laptops and smartphones, there are still many occasions when we turn to old-school methods. We review printed contracts and write to-do-lists and meeting notes on writing pads, whiteboards, or sticky notes. However, digitizing analog information can be cumbersome and unsafe. Whenever you take a photo, you unwittingly place a middleman in the process which makes digitalization unsecure. This is where the Tresorit Document Scanner can help.

With the Document Scanner you can securely scan and upload documents in scanner-quality to Tresorit. Once you have uploaded the documents, you can securely share them with colleagues and partners straight away.

When to use?

  • Upload confidential documents

    Your teams work with confidential contracts, which need to be signed in a paper format. Document Scanner lets you securely upload them to the cloud without any copies being made on devices.

  • Notes and meeting memos

    Whatever you create during a meeting; sketches on a whiteboard or notes on a piece of paper, just simply scan with the Tresorit mobile app and it will automatically upload it to the cloud. Files can be shared instantly with the other participants.

  • Receipts and invoices

    Scan your receipts and invoices after each purchase and Tresorit will upload them to the cloud in an encrypted format. Files can be shared immediately with your finance team or accountant.

  • Transfer analog data

    There are times when you need to send a photo of your ID or passport for legal, visa or other official purposes. With Tresorit, you can scan your sensitive documents and share them securely without the use of an unsafe middleman like your phone’s storage or email provider.

“Tresorit simplified a lot our internal processes and helps us to collaborate with our clients easily, while reassuring them that their data are handled in a compliant way. There is no excuse for anybody not to use Tresorit.”

  • Why is it different than other document scanner solutions?
    Other service providers are not end-to-end encrypted. It means, that your data is not encrypted in one or more stages during the upload or storing process. It’s like closing the door, but leaving the windows opened. Tresorit encrypts your scans on your device and each stage is encrypted, leaving no room for error.
  • Why is it better than a scanner machine?
    With the Tresorit mobile app, you can scan and securely share documents even on the go. You don’t need to be in the office in order to scan documents. Furthermore, scanning documents places an unsecure middleman in the process. The scanner sends the scans via email to your mailbox, meaning one more software receives access to your documents. Tresorit encrypts your scans on your device and each stage is encrypted, leaving no room for error.
  • Can I use Document Scanner with every Tresorit subscription?
    Document Scanner is available for all paid Tresorit accounts. You can edit each image separately (crop, filter, rotate) and you can rearrange their sequence.
  • Where do you save the images?
    When you hit the “Save” button after taking the photos, Tresorit will ask you in which Tresor to save your scans. Your scans will be uploaded immediately to your Tresorit, without leaving any file or metadata on your phone. All the images are being encrypted on your device, so the whole process is saved by zero-knowledge end-to-end encryption.
  • Can I upload multiple images as one file?
    Yes. Take photos one-by-one, and Tresorit will save your scans in one pdf when you are ready.
