If you'd like a solution that the NSA doesn't have backdoors to: https://keybase.io/docs/kbfs

Which is an alpha-version feature of a service that's currently in private beta. Looks great and I'd like to try it out, but currently I can't. (edit: missing word)

I have keybase invites. i would need an email address to send it to.

The NSA doesn't have backdoors into Dropbox. Dropbox has had the highest rating from the EFF regarding user rights, transparency and privacy.


That's pretty misleading. That article is judging what is written in the publicly stated privacy policy of each company.

EFF has in no way verified the privacy policy is actually honored or that back-doors aren't installed in the companies' datacenters.

And let us not forget about the whole Drop Dropbox scenario which was very popular on HN at the time it was released: http://www.drop-dropbox.com

And that Dropbox was one of the companies in the whole PRISM scandal.

I still use it, mostly to transfer files between my devices, but there's no way I'm gonna be using it for anything sensitive. Everything sensitive goes to my organization's ownCloud installation which I completely trust since... well, I'm the one maintaining it.

Drew Houston, CEO of Dropbox, did all but admit it. http://techcrunch.com/2014/11/04/dropboxs-drew-houston-respo...
