Been using it for 2 years and happy with it. Some things to be aware of:

  • the iOS app is not that great, I don't use it but I don't need it so..not an issue for me
  • because it uses encryption, it's a bit slower when up/downloading. (fast en not secure/slower and secure, there can be only one..)
  • it's a sync service, but has a [Vault] where you can store stuff that's not synced. Use it as a space to park your important files. syncing is not a backup!
  • versioning/history with restore
  • easy sharing of files, with passwords if you want
  • web interface is not brilliant, but gets the job done
  • friendly and fast support
  • nice bang for buck (not even 50 bucks a year for 500 GB)

Secure cloud service: zero-knowledge policy with client-side AES encryption at rest and in motion. 250% more free storage than Dropbox (by default).

Too good to be true. 3TB for 10$ / mo? Okay, or they have a long-term business model, and only after 1 year they will start to receive some profit from paid users, or they simply hide something about encryption. I see a massive advertising campaign on the internet related to this service. This is a really huge money, really a lot of money. Who is behind them? I did not found any info yet. Someone really rich must be behind them, otherwise, it's another service for gathering users information and use it against users.

What I do not like:

  • their apps for me - weird.
  • Upload speeds vary
  • Website - copy-paste from Dropbox, which is a super bad and dirty sign.

Anyway, without proofs that they're bad, I can't say anything really bad about them yet. Only the time will show, but be careful with something that offers 3TB for 100$ / year. This is an economically weird thing.

I use it daily to keep files in sync across my devices and protect against ransomeware.
