I don’t really know what category this goes into.
I was wondering how folks felt about storing data in Dropbox that might contain information such as bank account numbers, social security numbers, or any other form of sensitive information. (BTW: Yes, I actually store that kind of stuff in 1Password. However, I have a lot of files syncing between computers that contains information that should not be spread “wild” on the internet.)
I have tried using services like Sync.com that provide a Dropbox-like experience but with zero-knowledge encryption, eg they do NOT have the keys to decrypt your files and so cannot supply them to any third party, and more importantly in the event of a data breach, they files cannot be decrypted by anyone else. However, these services do not sync all of the MacOS metadata, and I need things like Finder tag syncing for my workflows.
Dropbox has the best, as far as I can tell, overall functionality. It is my understanding that files are encrypted both in transit and at rest on Dropbox’s servers (correct me if I am wrong), BUT the encryption is with Dropbox’s keys which means that they can be subject to data breaches.
My question is how realistic is that concern at this point (I know they had issues at one point in the past, but perhaps that is all behind us if they have fixed said issues).
Do you feel comfortable with Dropbox’s data security?
