where friends help you recover lost encrypted items
Making encryption usable
Learn more
Are you afraid of using end-to-end encryption for fear of losing the key? With our patent pending VES™ technology, that’s no longer a problem. Your pre-selected Friends can assist you in recovering your data by simply entering their own key and choosing to assist you. And, VES does this while maintaining the privacy of end-to-end encryption and without giving any Friend access to your private content.
The beauty behind VES is that it’s viral. If your Friends have lost their keys, their Friends can assist them and then they can assist you. There’s no limit to the length of the viral network, and after just a small network, the odds of you losing your data are lower than winning the lottery! Check out our interactive tool to show just how reliable VES recovery really is.
VES makes end-to-end encryption safe, easy and practical for mainstream use.
Lost Key Recovery as easy as...
Learn more
If you lose your VESkey, the process of VESrecovery is as simple as you typing in a new VESkey, which alerts your Friends. Some Friends voice verify that you are making the request and then enter their VESkeys to assist you. Then, you re-enter your new VESkey. With that, all your old content will be recovered and added to any new encrypted content you created since you lost the previous VESkey.
1. Create a new VESkey
2. Friends enter their VESkeys
3. Enter your new VESkey
For third parties to use VES
Beta is available now

Through our APIs, we’re making VES available to any third party that wishes to integrate VES into their services to extend the benefits of VES to their customers. Any service that stores customer data will be able to do so by giving their customers a safe and practical way of using end-to-end encryption without the risks of losing encrypted content by losing the sole key.
VES coming soon to:
Storj Filecoin
Sia MaidSAFE
Filecoin, Maidsafe, Storj and Sia have opened the door to a paradigm change in how the Internet will used to store and access content – distributed storage.
Unlike centralized services like Google Drive or Dropbox, distributed storage requires the use of encryption and along with that comes the problem of losing the key. By mitigating the key loss issue, VES enables distributed storage to become practical for mainstream use.
Distributed Storage will soon be integrated into the VESvault CloudDash app along with currently available Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. Users will not only be able to select multiple storage options, they’ll be able to use them all concurrently, providing an even higher level of redundancy and options.
VES enabled distributed storage will change how everyone stores their personal content on the Internet.

Digital Wallets
Hot & Cold
The 1st API integration is here!
Bitcoin Etherium
The horror stories are mounting. People are losing all the assets in their digital wallets by losing their keys, Seeds, hardware, pins and passwords. While some people are OK with this risk, for the rest of us, VES provides a robust means of recovering our wallets if we lose the passphrases that unlock them.
You can go to wallet.ves.world to see a VES enabled version of MyEtherWallet/MyCrypto. There, you can use the Keystore option to backup your wallet password to your VESvault. If you ever forget your password you can retrieve it with your VESkey. And, once you’ve set up your VES recovery network, if you ever forget your VESkey you can recover everything with VES, including your wallet password.
VES turns the Keystore option into a much safer and more secure method of storing your private key. You password is encrypted and stored in the cloud, while the private key it encrypts is safely stored locally on multiple separate storage devices. You get more security through a better separation of password and key, and more safety in more redundancy for both the password and key.
Through Github we’ve submitted our VES updates to both MyEtherWallet and MyCrypto for inclusion into their code. We hope they, and other wallet services, take over from here.

IMAP Email
Yes, this means your
Gmail account
It’s way too inconvenient to have a separate email account specifically for encrypted emails.
It would be far better if we could simply use our existing IMAP email accounts and selectively use encryption when appropriate and opt to not use it when it’s too inconvenient.
Then, there’s also the issue of losing your encryption key and forever losing all your email history. These two problems have made end-to-end encryption impractical for widespread use with email.
VESmail solves these two problems. VES Recovery provides a robust means of recovering your end-to-end encrypted email history after key loss. And, VESmail allows you to selectively send encrypted emails to others who uses VESmail, or to send an open text message to those who do not. All of this from the same, existing IMAP email address, such as Gmail or Hotmail.
With VESmail you no longer need to compromise. You can the security of end-to-end encryption, the safety of VES Recovery and the convenience of using your existing IMAP email address.

VES enabled cloud storage
CloudDash does more than integrate VES with Google Drive, Dropbox and Onedrive. It’s the one place you can see all your drives with all service providers and every user who has access, in one view. And, you can drill down to manage by person, as well as by file.
CloudDash introduces the concept of Entities. Think of an entity as the storage version of what a channel is to team chat. With entities, you can organize your storage drives, and the people who have access to them, by company, team, investment, family, departments, clients, or any other type of group that suits your needs. Just as channels unlocked the potential of team chat, entities will enable your storage solutions to better match how you organize and work with the teams to which you belong.
