pCloud is an affordable zero-knowledge service that works well with 32-bit and 64-bit Ubuntu. Users can save files directly to the cloud, or download the desktop app, to make transferring files easier.
PCloud is an affordable option that prides itself on being completely secure.
No software is required to use it, simply log in into the online account to load, access and share files.
PCloud offers a 60 day free trial of their service.
However, those using the free trial, will notice that storage space is limited to 10GB. You can earn an additional 20GB of space, by adding various accounts to it.
Users who have multiple social media accounts and cloud providers, can add their links to gain more space. Once the free trial is over, and you are charged the first month’s fee, the additional space will be available.
During the free trial, however, all premium features are accessible.
One annoying thing about pCloud, is the pre-loading of files onto your web account.
They place these files in the account, so you can see what can be saved to their service.
Unfortunately, pre-loaded files do eat up precious space, you can easily delete them to make room for your files.
Why We Like it
pCloud offers the same zero-knowledge service that SpiderOak does, so users can share and collaborate on files, while maintaining complete privacy. However, pCloud crypto for zero-knowledge privacy needs to be purchased in addition to the monthly free paid for storage.
pCloud is one of the few providers willing to put their cryptography to the test.
Currently, the bounty offered by PCloud is at $100,000. Over 2,800 participants from all around the world have tried to crack their system.
None have been able to break in and claim their prize.
