    Might pay to read some of the terms and conditions when signing up for this stuff.

    This is a prime example of why you always, always, always encrypt content you're uploading to a third-party curator. Even if they offer encryption, that's only good against people who aren't:

    A. You
    B. Them

    Use your own encryption that only you control and THEN you can also consider using theirs.

    Here's a great place to start.

    Especially when those terms & conditions don't say what the quote claims they say:

    Storing any file off of your computer on some other service puts you at the mercy of their security. IMHO anyone doing this needs very good encryption if only to protect themselves against data breaches. What is safe today might become very unsafe tomorrow.
