fortunate: local crypt before upload

about Firefox Sync and TrueCrypt · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

Fortunately content is encrypted on your device prior to uploading. This is better than the contrary and better than "services" which create the key for "your convenience"

If the data can be retrieved under subpoena it is NOT SECURE.

It encrypts all your data end-to-end without you needing to do anything (it uses your Mozilla account password.). Also, it sends you mails you need to verify (click) when a new device is added to your account as an additional security precaution when you sign-in into a new device.

Apart from that great security, it's really easy to use, syncs all your tabs, history, add-ons, passwords, bookmarks etc. across all devices (even Android), so you can use them everywhere. You can also send a tab to a different Firefox/device.
