Free Adobe XD UI Kit: Private File Sharing that Priorities Security

Easy-to-use, enjoyable interfaces may delight your users, but they’re likely to reject your designs if they don’t feel secure using your app and sharing their data. That’s why it’s important for user experience (UX) designers to prioritise security features in their products, and properly communicate those features (and how to use them) effectively. Do security right, and you can win the UX jackpot — do it wrong, and you’ll find your users will quickly look for another app or service.

The Vault UI Kit is the latest free user interface (UI) resource for Adobe XD, and it has a host of beautiful and functional components for building an app or website with secure elements (from passcodes to encrypted file sharing). You can download the Vault UI Kit here, and for more user interface resources for Adobe XD, check out our five latest free UI kits and icon sets.

Vault UI Kit: Secure login features, private file sharing, and end-to-end encryption elements

The Vault UI Kit was created by San Francisco multidisciplinary designer Kerem Suer and Ame Elliott, design director of the educational nonprofit Simply Secure, which is devoted to advancing the causes of security, privacy, and transparency in product design. It features tons of UI elements to help you build an app or website in Adobe XD with security elements, such as:

  • Phone number login.
  • Touch ID login.
  • The ability to secure files in your Private Vault.
  • The ability to view your shared files/folders.
  • The ability to audit your file/folder activity with Activity Log.
  • Send a secure copy of a file, protected with end-to-end encryption.
  • Secure public-key barcode scan.
  • Profile card.
  • List edit mode.

In short, the Vault UI Kit provides you with important tools to transform the security demands of your next app or service into an opportunity. With it, you’ll be able to delight your users with a spectacular UX. It is built in Adobe XD, allowing designers to:

  • Simply change the colour of the whole app within clicks.
  • Be consistent with assets with the devoted asset manager.
  • Create fixed elements used to reflect a more realistic prototype (navbar).
  • Create overlays to be used for action sheets.
  • Publish design specs.
  • Use repeat grid to replicate security checks across features.

There, he’s helped companies create and define visual design systems across web, mobile, and desktop. His clientele includes companies such as Dropbox, Pinterest, Intuit, Omada Health, MyFitnessPal, and Zendesk. Kerem is based out of foggy San Francisco and is rarely seen without his four-legged assistant designer, Lola.
