Allow a premium feature (SFTP) without uploading any user data to your servers
I really like your ssh client, but there was always one issue: I can't scp
files back and forth like I normally would from a shell. I saw the premium
features include an SFTP interface, which sounds awesome.
I signed up for a premium yearly plan, but one thing immediately turned me off:
I am extremely uncomfortable uploading my private keys to a server that isn't
mine. It's not that I doubt your competence, it's just that I'm very paranoid
when it comes to security.
As far as I could tell, was no way to use the SFTP client without registering
and syncing my keys. Is there anyway for me to purchase just the SFTP
interface? This would really be the perfect ssh app for me, and I'd still be
willing to pay the full subscription price if this was possible.
Thank you, and thanks for a great app.

Thanks for your report and suggestion.
Sorry, we've marked this as completed by mistake.
I have some clarifications about your problem:
All your private data has been encrypted by your master password before sending to server. We don't know your master password and we store only sha-256 hash of your password.
In spite of this we understand that some users would like to disable synchronization of their private ssh-keys and passwords. Therefore we've already started to implement this functional. In next release you will be able to disable synchronization of your private data (SSH-keys and passwords) in settings.
Would this solution be comfortable for you?
Thanks for using Server Auditor!

Just curious why this is marked as completed. I don't like the idea of having to sync data or login to use the SFTP client. As far as I can tell, I still have to login to use my favorite SSH/SFTP client. Syncing or logging in at all makes me uncomfortable. Is there any way to avoid this? Would really appreciate a response.
Also, I should have mentioned before, I'm using the Android version.
