Privacy and You: Why Google Drive May Not Be Your Best Option
LOS ANGELES, April 19, 2012 – /PRNewswire/ – Lately, there’s been loads of buzz about Google Drive, an upcoming cloud storage service from Google. It’s claimed that Google Drive will offer users 5GB of free storage, with the choice to buy more at any time. Sounds good, but what is going to be the largest problem with Google Drive? In a word, privacy.
Google has no problem targeting ads on to their users in keeping with the content in their Gmail messages. What’s to prevent Google from doing the identical with the documents and other files you’d upload to Google Drive? How private is it, really?
IDrive Online Backup, a cloud storage provider, is committed to providing secure, fast, and easy Online Backup. IDrive Online Backup, on its new EVS platform, has offered 5GB accounts – completely without cost, no strings attached – for a very long time now. On top of that, IDrive offers the choice to take advantage of a personal encryption key; with this key, nobody – not even IDrive – can decrypt a user’s files. Create an IDrive account and store as much as 5GB of documents, and more, with none privacy concerns. Additionally, IDrive offers:
- Cross-compatibility – A single IDrive account, at the EVS platform, may be accessed seamlessly from Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android devices.
- No data mining – IDrive would not scan or search your own files. Your documents and other files are personal and personal; we get that, and we expect it’s going to stay that way.
- Plug-ins – IDrive was built from the bottom-up on their EVS platform ; the APIs are freely available for developers to create plug-ins for the service. IDrive Connect as an instance, allows a user to map their Google Docs to a lettered drive on their computer. Additionally, users can back up their Google Docs to their existing IDrive Online Backup account.
What about sync space? So far as Google Drive goes, that is still to be seen. IDrive, however, is promising some exciting new developments within the sync storage arena that are coming soon.
