Using rclone on a public WiFi network

Does rclone encrypt files during a transfer, so that it’d be safe to use on public WiFi?

I know you can set encryption up, and I’ve read that that “encrypts on the fly”, so before transfer, but this would leave the file encrypted on the destination. I’m wondering if the files can be encrypted during transfer only, and left unencrypted on both the source and destination.

Rclone is an awesome tool! Thanks to everyone who helps to create and maintain it!

Rclone uses SSL/TLS with https with all the public cloud providers, so I think it is safe as browsing via https would be on a public WiFi.

SFTP ssh encryption which is very strong. Don’t use FTP which isn’t encrypted!

That is the default :slight_smile:
