Use Secure Search

Because the contents of files protected by Atakama are encrypted, you will be unable to use the native search function within your operating system to search the contents of those files. However, file names remain unencrypted so you can continue to use the native search function within your operating system for file names.

To use Atakama Secure Search, click the Atakama icon in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (macOS), then type the search term into the "Search Files" area and hit enter.



You will then receive a request on your Atakama Mobile app to approve the search.


The results of the search will appear in a separate window, with an indication of whether the search term is contained within the content of the file or the file name.


Click on any of the files to be take to the file location where you can use Atakama to decrypt and open the file.
