Frequently asked questions

1. How does Portabella work?

Portabella uses a combination of AES, ECIES and ECDH to ensure secure and encrypted communication. All private keys are generated in your browser (with the option to import your own mnemonic for higher entropy) and data is only ever decrypted there. We've written a blog post with more information on the exact details of this.

4. Who is the team behind Portabella?

Currently development is done by me, Alex in Berlin, Germany. I began working on this in my free time after my tenure at DataWallet. During my time there I saw that while people want to use privacy preserving and end-to-end encrypted tools, they aren't necessarily easy to use or accessible.

2. What are other platforms lacking that you provide?

With Portabella, you are not the product. A limited free tier allows us to charge organisations for a premium product. This allows us to focus on and develop features in privacy preserving ways. We can't expect companies to do anything more than the bare minimum when it comes to privacy, and by using end-to-end encryption we put it at the forefront of our offering. No one should be able to see your data but you.

5. Why should I care about my privacy?

Data brokers spanning every industry imaginable including credit reporting, risk mitigation and advertising buy and sell your data at breakneck speeds. These brokers know a worrying amount about you and your habits (both online and offline). End-to-end encryption signifies an end to this shady business model. Without being able to look at data, brokers aren't able to derive any value from it.

3. Is there a public roadmap?

Looking for a new feature? We host and track Portabella development out in the open on Portabella, take a look at our public roadmap here.

6. Is Portabella open source?

Not yet. Hopefully soon we'll be in a position where the Portabella codebase can be open sourced.
