    It's an android app. You can find it in amazon store.

    Don't know if it's a reliable app...

    I'm in the mood with my smooth Z10

    It's the most secure cloud for consumers right now.

    Blackphone comes stock with it.

    If I recall correctly, I downloaded the Spider Oak app from Snap as well but it would not function properly and ended up locking up.

    I was fortunate enough to snag a free Wuala account before they moved to pay only, as that Android app seemed to work for me.

    Out of the cloud world, I'd really only put any level of trust into Spider Oak or Wuala. That isn't to say a new secure player can't come along, but I haven't seen it yet.

    I'm not sure if that was in reply to me, but you misinterpreted what I was saying if so.

    While any Android app is inherently not as secure as a BlackBerry 10 app, I was referencing the cloud storage security itself, not the medium for which one uses it.

    Yup, alas, that is the inherent nature of cloud storage. While security on some solutions far surpasses others, there has to be a certain level of trust in the company providing the storage.

    Seeking out the better of cloud storage solutions in terms of security aside (that could be a lengthy post on security practices), I always recommend using some form of encryption before uploading to the cloud. While nothing is 100% secure, with the right password, encryption scheme, and hashing algorithm, you can achieve a very high level of security.

    This. Remember that hacking has a (return of investment) concept attached to it.

    If what's in your cloud doesn't have great value to the hacker they won't bother throwing resources and time to it.

    In other words no one is gonna utilise a super computer or spend weeks/months/years to hack into your account if it doesn't bring great value to them.

    The icloud hack was easy. Hacking a secure cloud like spider oak is entirely different.

    Not true if the cloud storage is implemented to give that level of security. For example, if the data is encrypted on the local device with a key that never leaves the device, then the data stored in the cloud can not be decrypted by the people storing it, or anyone esle, except through a brute force attack.

    Would agree totally if you mean encrypted with one's own solution versus a proprietary piece of software provided by the cloud storage provider. In the case of the latter, malicious code could be used to weaken encryption algorithms on purpose to allow for business-side decryption later. One would need to audit the source code of such a program to ensure encryption is being implemented properly. This of course is an arduous task that requires a level of expertise very few lay people possess.

    This scenario of course is the paranoid tech user in me speaking, but I don't think it's out of question given out current online security climate.

    You are of course correct. Home grown encryption is beyond most users thought. There are solutions that allow something like that. Encrypting the data locally with Truecrypt and then sending it to SpiderOak. Both providers would have to be compromised. Depends on your level of paranoia. I would have to do some research to come up with something that would work on BB10.

    Speaking of levels of paranoia, when did you do a code review of BB10?

    It's in the works...

    Like I said before, with any service you didn't build from the ground up you have to have a certain level of trust in it.

    When faced with the options, I saw:

    Android: The security foundation made of swiss cheese.

    iOS: A repeat offender on lists of companies that comply with the alphabet agencies' requests.

    Windows Phone: See above.

    That isn't to say BlackBerry isn't guilty of these things, as very few people have the ability to prove this all out. I merely work from the information available on the security of the system. At the end of the day, I try my absolute best to make for a secure online experience, of which, BlackBerry currently provides the best shot at given my research.

    I think more users need to look into home grown encryption like you mentioned. You exponentially raise security when you yourself have done the leg work. Alas, convenience seems to always trump security in the list of needs for people these days sadly.
