-Cryptpad is a web application that allows users to create, edit and collaborate on documents in real time. It can by accessed via https://​cryptpad.gwdg.de. 
-All data and information that you create during the usage is encrypted and the documents can only be access by the person(s) who has (have) a link to it. 
-Apart from usual text documents cryptpad also supports Markdown/​Code documents, presentations,​ polls and a whiteboard. 
  
  
-==== Account for Cryptpad ==== 
- 
-To receive permanent access to your documents from all your devices, we recommend to create a user account specifically for Cryptpad. Cryptpad cannot be connected to GWDGs identity management, so, unfortunately,​ you cannot use your usual account but need to create a new one. 
-Information on these cryptpad accounts are also stored in an encrypted fashion and, therefore, cannot be linked to a user. 
-In order to create a new account, select '​Register'​ in the menu on the top right and choose a user name and a password. From now on, you can access all data linked to your account from any device. 
- 
-**Warning:​** If you do not save your documents from within a registered account, they will be deleted automatically after 3 months!
