How to Use The SwissDisk Web Interface

Home Sweet Home

When you signup for a SwissDisk account we provide you a single URL (web address) that you can use to access your files and folders on your encrypted SwissDisk. Using a web browser, with this address, is by far the easiest one-click way to get to your data.

Please note that after you login to your SwissDisk account, you will have to reauthenticate to view other areas such as you personal and billing profile pages. This is required to provide additional security for your information. If you need assistance, please contact our Customer Support Center.
