Snowden advised viewers to get rid of Dropbox

Government whistleblower Edward Snowden gave the public a few words of wisdom, and caution, during a Saturday night video interview for The New Yorker Festival. During the hour-long conversation with The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer, Snowden advised viewers to get rid of Dropbox, and to avoid using high-profile online services such as Facebook and Google, if they wanted to protect their privacy in the ever-more-informed Information Age.

During an audience Q&A, Snowden said that people should “search for encrypted communication services” because they “enforce your rights.” He advised the public to be wary of online services that are “hostile to privacy,” specifically Facebook and Google and cloud storage service Dropbox.

AXIS CloudSync is a 448-bit military grade encryption sync solution and great alternative to Dropbox, give us a try we think you’ll agree as well.
