    pCloud

    pCloud is your personal online storage space for your memorable photos and videos, your favorite music or important work documents.

    • pCloud is a good alternative to Dropbox because it offers the same functionality with the following benefits: 1. It offers the option of an encrypted folder, so even pCloud employees can't see or steal your data; 2. pCloud is based in Switzerland where privacy rules are far stronger than in the US. 3. pCloud offers a larger amount of free space (5GB vs 2GB from Dropbox.)

    • Data privacy is far better than Dropbox, and the encrypted folder works well. It acts just like a drive connected to your PC, not a folder, so the file is stored directly in your cloud account, and not at all on your device. When you het the larger drives (I have the 2TB), it allows me to run the Built-in backup utilities on the web interface to back up Dropbox, facebook, Google Drive and Google Photo's, giving me an extra level of redundancy in my backups.

    • Tresorit does everything Dropbox does, except that it's far more secure and private. It operates in Switzerland and keeps your files encrypted in a way that even the employees can't see them. This means that if they were hacked, your information isn't going to be leaked and they can't pass it on to snooping three-letter agencies. Guest • Sep 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • End-to-end encrypted Dropbox alternative. Does what Dropbox, Google Drive and others do. But the files are only ever encrypted with passwords you keep, on your computer. So Tresorit doesn't get to see your private stuff. Expensive for individuals, though, but fantastic security. JohnFastmanNov 2016 Disagree   Agree

    Sync makes it easy to store, share and access your files from everywhere - your privacy guaranteed. Get 5GB free or 500GB Pro account for $49/yr.

    Freemium Mac Windows Web Android iPhone ... iPad

    • Sync.com is a MUCH better choice than Dropbox (unless you use Linux), because it does everything Dropbox does, but it uses end-to-end encryption to ensure that your data is stored in a way only you can view it. That's not true of Dropbox, because they keep the encryption keys, which can be used by employees to see what you've got, stolen by hackers or passed on to the feds. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • End-to-end encryption and simple interface makes Sync.com a good alternative. The vault, where you can archive files in the cloud, is a nice touch. Guest • May 2017 Disagree   Agree

Annoying nags and disregard for users

about Dropbox · ·

When you're close to the storage limit on a free plan (which if you've been using Dropbox for a long time is usually fairly generous), you get a daily nag to subscribe to a paid plan.

Other users have pointed out the many privacy issues with Dropbox, but what finally drove me to switch was their casual disregard for macOS users when they decided to hack our computer's security to display their badge on top of other apps.

very good storage place

a very safe and secure storage place. has got many new updates. upgrading to the higher versions gives many more features- camera uploads, passcodes and lot more. very helpful.

a very safe and secure storage place.

No it's not. They don't implement end-to-end encryption so your data can be accessed by them and anyone who hacks their servers (has happened). They have also been a target by intelligence agencies wanting to snoop on people's data. For more info, see here:

... or read my review under the Reviews tab, here on alternativeto.net. There are many better Dropbox alternatives.

Keep Your Eyes Open

about Dropbox and Google Drive · · 1 Helpful

I've got to say that while I use both Dropbox and Google Drive; I prefer Dropbox in the area that through various promotions they've upgraded my storage space to an insane amount. While in my eyes Google Drive works better, and interfaces well Gmail and other Google apps, my storage space in Google Drive is a mere 10% of what I get in Dropbox and with Dropbox I got some storage space for free, and other increases with incredibly low prices.

So if you're considering the two, that may be worth looking into.

Great program, lacks space

about Dropbox · · 1 Helpful

I consider myself to be a Dropbox fan. As an early adopter of the program, I found it extremely handy for handling large documents without having to take around my computer, and later on, to see in tablets and phones. Syncing is great and sharing is fast. However, I do feel that they need to extend their space. 2 GB free is too small and fills up quickly. Having to refer others to gain more space from the minuscule already given is a hassle.

Great Cloud Storage & File sync

about Dropbox and Google Drive · ·

I like Google Drive more when it comes down to work collaboratively on documents.

But as most of my daily business is about sharing, syncing and backing up files Dropbox is my first choise. It smoothly integrates with your personal file system so that you do not need to worry about anything. Only speed of syncing is sometimes a bit slow...

There are better alternatives in terms of functionality and free space.

2GB is pathetic for free storage.
