Google offers its users a wide array of services that they have cleverly tied and integrated into each other, with the idea being that it would create a more cohesive system that just works across the board. Google Drive is one of the features and acts as the backup of choice for Android, like the photos you take, videos, and even messages.
This doesn’t mean that Google Drive is the best, and if you feel that maybe Google knows a bit too much about you, more than you’re comfortable with, then it might be time to start exploring some alternative options. Some of these alternative backup services are free, some are paid, but maybe there could be something else that you might find that Google isn’t offering.
Not to be confused with Dropbox, Box is a cloud storage service that is probably a close rival to Google Drive. It works with a variety of software, such as Office 365, Safesforce, and Adobe Sign. This means that users will be able to open those files within Box itself and view them or make edits.
Users can also create links to shared items, making it easy for others to access the contents even if they might not have a Box account. Users can also password protect these files so that only those who are authorized can view them.
