A zero knowledge cloud-based productivity suite.

It's really difficult collaborating on files securely. Emailing documents back and forth is a nightmare, and solutions like Google Docs are a privacy minefield. So what do you do when you need to collaborate on a sensitive document securely? You use CryptPad.

Based in France and Romania, CryptPad offers a rich-text document editor, a code editor, presentations, polls, to-do lists, a whiteboard, and file storage; all in an no knowledge encrypted cloud. Surprisingly, all of the services work nicely on the tablets and mobile devices we tested. CryptPad also works flawlessly within Tor for extra anonymity.

CryptPad is available for free, in fact, you don't even need to create an account. You can spin up a new document on their homepage with a single click, however additional storage/features are available with paid accounts. Take your collaboration to the next level with CryptPad.
