Google Drive Encryption
Syncdocs provides full end-to-end Google Drive Encryption
If your Google account is hacked, the hacker has full access to your data. Syncdocs can prevent this from happening by encrypting your data at the source on your PC or device.
All of us have emails, documents or photos we do not want shared with the entire world. Everyday, we all store more data on-line, be it Google Drive, Instagram or Dropbox. A big concern is that hackers, Google employees or goverment agencies like the NSA, might get access to this data.
Syncdocs securely encrypts files before uploading them to Google Drive, so no unencrypted data ever leaves your computer. This provides true end-to-end encryption, and only authorized people have the key. Even Google or the NSA cannot read the data in your files without this key, all they will see is encrypted gibberish.
With Syncdocs, encrypted files can easily be shared with others who have permission. Permissions which can be revoked at any time. Online storage can also be partitioned into secure, private and public sections, with different encryption settings on each. Encryption keys can be safely backed up, too.
Syncdocs now supports full Google Drive encryption of any file or folder using strong encryption.
This means that your files are visible only to you, or those who you have shared them to with a password. No-one else can decrypt your data.
End-to-End encryption for Google Drive
The encryption is done locally, on your computer, not on Google’s cloud. This is important, as it means no unencrypted data ever leaves your PC. As long as your PC is secure, so is your data. Anyone spying on your Google Drive will only see encrypted files which are useless to them.
