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.
Unlike Tresorit, which seems to be aimed more towards business users, pCloud is more for regular folks who just want a secure cloud storage service to backup their files to. It works on a variety of platforms including computers and mobile, and the company also offers the pCloud Crypto (paid) service that they claim is unbreakable.
Similar to Tresorit, the folks behind pCloud are so confident in their technology that they have offered hackers and security researchers $100,000 as a reward if they break it, and so far, more than 3,000 have tried and failed.
