My Friday Favourite this week is pCloud – All your files with you, anywhere you go.
What is it?
pCloud is an encrypted cloud storage platform.
How can it help me?
pCloud allows you to store your documents — such as files, photos and music — in a secure environment in the Cloud.
You can then easily access these files from any device, wherever you are in the world.
If you’re familiar with services such as Dropbox and Google Drive, then you’ll be familiar with the idea behind pCloud.
I’ve written before on How to Protect the Data on your Laptop or Mobile Device and one of the best ways to do this is to make sure your files are backed up to the Cloud using a tool such as pCloud.
The pCloud app can automatically back up any photos from your Smartphone, tablet or computer.
Once a file is saved to pCloud, it can be accessed via a web browser on any device, or by apps for Windows, Mac, Android or iOS.
pCloud allows users to store up to 10gb of data for free (which compares very favourably with Dropbox and other similar tools) and offers some incredibly competitive pricing for larger storage needs, including a 2TB lifetime plan.
pCloud also offers some advanced features that other platforms don’t, including Crypto folders (end-to-end encrypted folders) and high-quality video storage.
I’ve set myself up with 500GB of pCloud storage, and for its ease of use and reliability, I’m using pCloud as my main choice of personal cloud data storage.
How much does it cost?
pCloud offers 20GB storage for free.
A 500GB account will cost £4.49/month.
How can I get it?
Open a 500GB 30-day trial account at pCloud to get started.
