Cloud storage is easy to come by. Dozens of services shovel tons of free space to you just for signing up. But which of those services are looking at the files you upload, and most importantly, which services encrypt your personal data so no one can look at it? Let’s take a look.
You already know why you should care about your privacy, even if you think you have nothing to hide. Privacy is even more important when it comes to cloud storage. You trust the service you sign up for to keep your files safe and secure and away from prying eyes. Whether you use your cloud storage for music, tax returns, or backups, it’s still important to know that your provider isn’t rifling through your files to make sure the music isn’t pirated. If their servers ever get hacked, you want to know your tax returns and financial documents are safe.
