    Dropbox only allows you to sync document between your devices & access them from a web application but it isn't an online collaboration suite. You cannot edit documents right from Dropbox.

    Google Docs vs CryptPad opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Google Docs is still a legitimate alternative to CryptPad, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
    JohnFastman

    Google's products, including Drive, are designed to harvest your personal data. That involves storing your data in a readable format, which means it can (and is) given away to government surveillance and can be read by successful hackers. Cryptpad encrypts your data, cannot read or give it away.
