    Hi guys,

    Quick question,

    For my q10 I was considering backing up some files on one of these cloud storages so I could always access them on the phone but, I was wondering how safe you guys feel box really is?

    Because this is a blackberry forum of course you guys like the security which the phone provides, so keeping that mind, how do you guys feel about backing up some important documents onto say box?

    I'm always weary about uploading personal information to the cloud. But as far as music and stuff, why not.

    I use Dropbox for university work and Bitcasa for bulk storage. Nothing particularly sensitive there, but stuff like that is generally on local storage only.

    My personal trust rating of public cloud services? From 1-10? Zero. And that includes SpiderOak. I barely trust my own instance of ownCloud. And even then, files are first encrypted and hashed before being stored online.

    Box, dropbox, google drive and one drive are NOT encrypted end to end. Only the paid option for Box is. Tresorit is a consumer level cloud with end to end encryption.

    Do not put anything sensitive or of value in the cloud. Repeat until you understand what this means.

    SSL is there to protect data whist uploading and downloading, it's a widely used protocol on the Internet and used by secure websites/emails/etc but SSL alone is not enough.

    Files should be encrypted before being sent off to the cloud. That way only you have the key(password) to decrypt it.

    I don't use any of them. But if I were FORCED to, I would encrypt all my files locally before uploading them.

    They do have SSL encryption throughout, but SSL is encryption for data in transit. On those services the data is not encrypted at rest.

    Imagine cloud is pretty safe in that your data is hidden amongst petabytes of other stuff and the chances of anyone today having the time, motivation and access to sufficient hardware to single out your data and trawl through it is miniscule.
    That said one day on 'Google your Ancesters' it may all be open for your great grand kids to load/process in A.I . software to have a pseudo conversation with you about your taste in music, film, political opinion and even taste in porn.
    Depends if you want that, I suppose.

    Trusting any cloud service with what is really important is beyond my comfort zone. Yes, I use two different services but my important stuff and my system backups are stored double backed up on two hard drives stored in a fire safe. Yes, "a" fire safe is still single point failure but I can afford to be only so paranoid :-)

    There's nothing about clouds that garners trust from me. They don't at all lend a perception of secure, imo. But I use them for storage of non-sensitive data and materials. Useful! But I wouldn't put real personal things there

    Use my Z30 mostly for business and anything I do not want others to see stays on my Z30.
    Stuff is secure until someone wants to see it.

    Don't trust any of them.
