I am not even talking about the password-less access to the Dropbox data ;-). A mistake can happen to everybody and bugs are in every code. Much bigger concern is the fact that data are not encrypted by default so in such cases there is no protection.
But now, Huston we have got a problem, a bigger one.
Ok, not everybody knows about it and not everybody is interested. However those who use Dropbox might want to know that Dropbox have just changed their terms and conditions. Maybe it is not even exactly as most people say that you basically agree Dropbox can do whatever they want with your data but it is pretty close. For me it is too close, close enough to close my Dropbox account.
But, hey are there any alternatives? We have been looking for a while and there is nothing what would really be good enough. However, we are software developers so maybe instead of looking for alternative we could create one? Looks like a lot of work but also a lot of fun too.
So, there is the project: https://projects.tigase.org/projects/syncbox If you are interested in joining us, drop me a message.
