    Does anyone know if the cloud sync information for password keeper on the BB10 devices are stored on Blackberry's own servers?

    Just trying to gauge how secure it is.

    Good question, when it was introduced they never really elaborated on where it was hosted. Presumably, it's within the NOC like the rest of your data that they capture. But that's purely an educated guess considering it was a BB10 feature. If it was BBM we're talking about, well, that's somewhere on Google's Cloud Platform.

    Thanks. I'd definitely feel better if it was in the NOC than some random 3rd party's servers.

    Does the android bb password keeper have cloud synch now?

    I'd always assumed that it was on the NOC servers as well. I'd bet that that's the case.

    But just in case, might be a good time to get the official word from BlackBerry.

    Darn good question. Till I get an official/trustworthy and favourable response I will be changing passwords and record elsewhere.

    On second thought, given state of affairs will do regardless.

    When I go into my Q10's Password Keeper's settings and click on "More Info" in the Cloud Synchronization settings it says the following under Security:

    "If you turn on Cloud Synchronization, your Password Keeper records are stored in BlackBerry's cloud. The records are designed to be encrypted at all times with AES-256 and protected with a key that is derived from your Password Keeper password." [emphasis mine]
    jope28 and evodevo69 like this.

    Correct. Thanks for posting.

    In summary:

    1. BB10 PK - records stored on the BlackBerry cloud encrypted with your master password.

    2. Android PK - no cloud backup
