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.
Cloud storage can be expensive especially at higher volumes, but if you’re after large storage that’s also secure, Sync could be it. The company offers plans from as low as $5 for 1TB of storage, which is actually pretty decent, and 2TB for just $8 a month. The service offers end-to-end encryption, share files and folders, set passwords, permission expiry dates, and more.
