Security and data privacy have a high priority at fileee, because we know that our users store confidential data. You can find more information here:
Why do we store data in the "Cloud" and not locally?
The OCR-analysis and the meta data analysis run both server-sided and can't be used locally, because of the processing power and the licence fees. The cloud function is very important for fileee as it allows access to all your documents from every device. Our goal is to simplify the whole process of paperwork. In the future we want to add several functions to fileee, which won't work easily without cloud.
We might do a purely local version of fileee in the future as well, but right now we don't have the capacity to run both.
