Post How good and secure is Internxt Cloud Drive ?


Hi,

I have been trying to move away from Google Drive. Currently, may be because of Android, almost all my friends and family is using Google Drive. But I am trying them to move away from Google due all that mockery Google do about privacy. I shortlisted https://internxt.com, have seen others too but this one seems to be very cost effective and privacy oriented.

My main question, how should I believe them that they will not invade my privacy ie. the files I store with them. They say its end-to-end encryption, does that really means that no one can really access my files, not even they even if they want ?

You're talking about storing your data on somebody else's computer which is being administered by somebody else using somebody else's rules which may or may not be accurately described by their public promises.

If you're going to use "the cloud" to store your information then, to quote Clint Eastwood, "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?'"

If you're really concerned about that, do your own encryption first...
After that, you can use any cloud store you want, whether they offer encryption or not.

PS I don't mean write your own encryption code ofc; that's an amazingly tricky niche skill set.
Use a reliable thing like eg AES that Keepass uses.

So it means because someone else is hosting, there is no security even if its end-to-end encryption. As per details about E2E encryption :
Quote:
In true end-to-end encryption, encryption occurs at the device level. That is, messages and files are encrypted before they leave the phone or computer and isnít decrypted until it reaches its destination. As a result, hackers cannot access data on the server because they do not have the private keys to decrypt the data. Instead, secret keys are stored with the individual user on their device which makes it much harder to access an individualís data.

It won't that convenient, say I want to access certain files on move, in service like this I can just login and get the file even from phone. While for my own encrypted file, will not be that straight forward.
