Whatever it is that you decide to upload to the cloud, it is not unreasonable to expect that certain security protocols are being employed to keep your data safe and secure, but it seems that the level of our expectations are not always matched by the level of security being offered.

If you want to learn more about some of the apps available to help you encrypt your files, such as Encrypto, Boxcryptor and Sookasa, plus others, it should be worth reading the guide.

  • It’s all relative. If you’ve got something worthwhile to encrypt, you’ll pay the money needed TO encrypt it properly.
