Private files the admin can't see?

Heye there,

NC 21.0.1

I created a user account for my brother.
Is there a possibility in the settings, that I cannot see what files he uploads (in case of dickpics :smiley: )

Thanks alot!

it’s a nature of the cloud service that admin can see and access all files. If the user doesn’t trust the service Nextcloud ships end2end encryption - in this case files are encrypted on the users device and the server (admin) only see garbage. But there are drawbacks as the user need to keep track of encryption keys (mnemonic) and ideally have another client/copy of the files. Recently multiple users reported issues with e2e encryption here in the forum…
