SpiderOak is an alternative to the very popular Dropbox service. Both earlier this summer and then this week, Edward Snowden listed Dropbox as a service of particular concern when it comes to the privacy and encryption of the documents and files stored on the service. While Dropbox does encrypt files as they travel between your computer and their servers and also encrypt files stored on their servers, they do not do what SpiderOak does and encrypt the data while it is on your computer as well.
I’m a firm believer in figuring out how to protect privacy online. So I am going to start experimenting with more of these services that secure privacy. While I am not particularly worried about what I do online being problematic legally, I think it makes sense to start using tools that protect my rights because my use of them speaks to the importance of the issue.
