You need access to the server running ownCloud in order to install the E2EE app.
Unfortunately, the market place can install e2ee directly only with an active enterprise license. But you can download the latest version from https://marketplace.owncloud.com/apps/e2eeshare and install it manually in apps-external or apps:
# Download to ~/Downloads, then (as root) do: cd /var/www/owncloud/apps-external tar -xzf ~/Downloads/e2eeshare-*.tgz
To enable/install these go to:
You will find the guest app unter "Collaboration"
And the activity app can be found under "tools"
The Trashbin (files_trashbin) and Versioning (files_versions) apps do not work with e2ee files. Unencrypted files are still supported.
You can find the newest E2ee release in the market place:
If you have problems using the marketplace app, you can also download the version from https://marketplace.owncloud.com/apps/e2eeshare and install it manually.
You can test E2ee using http(s)://localhost or http(s)://localhost/owncloud for up to 10 users. If you need any other domains for testing, please contact email@example.com with the exact URL you want to test with.

Download the latest e2eeshare version from https://marketplace.owncloud.com/apps/e2eeshare
If you have ownCloud enterprise you can use the marketplace to install the current version of e2ee-share.
Unzip the e2eeShare package into this folder:
cd /var/www/owncloud/apps-external tar -xzf ~/Downloads/e2eeshare-*.tgz
Verify that the zip is successfully extracted:
owncloud ├── apps-external ... │ ├── e2eeshare | | ├── ajax │ │ ├── appinfo │ │ ├── controller │ │ ├── css │ │ ├── db │ │ ├── img │ │ ├── js │ │ ├── l10n │ │ ├── lib │ │ └── templates ...
Open the Admin Settings and visit thesection. Enter your license key in the provided text area:
For trial purposes e2ee includes a valid license for localhost. If you want to try it out on a real environment you can request a demo license by providing your owncloud url (before the index.php)
Select, which key storages will be available for your users. You may provide different settings for ownCloud and guest users.
If you provide more than one key storage options, users have to set up their key storage in their personal settings prior to being able to read and save encrypted files. This must be communicated in advance to avoid any confusion.
This usually happens, when you did not specify correct URL(s) for your license keys. Make sure to send us the exact URL(s) the system will be visible from (i.e. https://example.com/owncloud) -> basically everything before index.php. If you plan to use different URLs for the same installation make sure to send us all of them.
Short Answer: no
Long Answer: It depends on your browser, operating system and available RAM. Since the en-/decryption takes place in your browser the file needs to fit within the available memory. Depending on you configuration it should not be a problem sharing files > 2GB although the additional en-/decryption process might require you to wait for quire some time.
De-/Encryption times for small files (<20MB) are barely noticeable on modern systems or even mobile devices. The larger the file gets the more noticeable is the wait after downloading (or before upload starts) - always depending on your hardware.
