Inviting other users to Confidencial
When you invite another user to join Confidencial with an individual account, a temporary key pair is generated for their account so you can immediately encrypt content for them. This temporary key is stored in Confidencial’s secure key server. Once the invited user registers their account, they will generate a more secure split key. All subsequent encryptions for them will use the split key.
There are two ways to invite users to join Confidencial with an individual account:
Inviting users via the Invites page in the web or desktop appInviting users via the recipient box in the web app, desktop app, or Office add-ins
Once you have sent invites, you can track their status.
- Once logged in to the web or desktop app, click Invite in the sidebar menu
- Click Invite People to Confidencial
- Enter the email addresses of the people you want to invite (up to 5 at a time) and click Send Invites
The users you invited will now receive invitation emails. You may now encrypt content for them.

- Click Send Invite to…

You can track the status of all your invites by clicking Invite in the web or desktop app. You can resend invite emails to users by clicking Send Again. When a user accepts your invitation, their status will change from pending to accepted.
