I'm a little unclear about Boxcryptor's abilities to work offline without access to BoxCryptor servers.
Long before Boxcryptor was sold to DropBox, the BoxCryptor FAQ had a scenario asking what would happen if BoxCryptor went out of business. The answer explained how we could continue to use the service as long as our keys were on our devices, even if we weren't using a local account. It was documented that even without local accounts, all devices already have a copy of the keys.
FAQ explaining BoxCryptor "Out of Business" scenario
It seems to me that the sale of BoxCryptor to DropBox and termination of Boxcryptor accounts at the end of the contractual period is the equivalent of the "Boxcryptor servers not being available" scenario presented in the FAQ above. If so, shouldnt we be able to continue to encrypt/decrypt our files to our cloud provider using the BoxCryptor application even if our accounts have been terminated, expecially since BoxCryptor was designed to keep working even if servers were unavailable?
However, at this FAQ link below, under the section "What Happens When the Cancellation Period Is Over?", it is implied that when the cancellation period is over, all devices will be disconnected and we will no longer be able to access our data or use the service. As a result, we're urged to decrypt our data before the termination date.
FAQ explaining what happens at end of cancellation period
Essentially, my question is: Shouldn't BoxCryptor continue to work on our existing devices at the end of the cancellation period even after our accounts have been deleted?
