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.
If you’re an enterprise user or just someone who values their privacy and security above all else, then Tresorit is a service worth taking a look at. The company boasts that they have military-grade encryption and public key cryptography. Files are encrypted before they even leave your device which means that no one, except you and other authorized users, can see it or access it.
The company is so sure of their security that they have a standing reward valued at $50,000 to anyone that can break it.
