Encrypted Dropbox variant SpiderOak increases storage limits




SpiderOak, a competitor for Dropbox which is encrypted completely unlike that service has adapted its subscriptions. Users can now get 1 terabyte of storage for $ 12 a month, which SpiderOak now more in terms of prices is in the fairway of Dropbox.

Until now cost 100 gigabytes of storage at SpiderOak $ 10 per month, but that plan has now been deleted. Who wants to upgrade, pay $ 7 per month for 30 gigabytes of storage or $ 12 per month for 1 terabyte of storage, converted 10.50 euros per month. The subscription with 5 terabytes of storage costs $ 25 per month. Users can still opt for a free subscription with 2 gigabytes of storage.

SpiderOak offers about the same functionality as Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive, with one important difference: the key that encrypted data is not stored on the server, but the user’s password. SpiderOak therefore can not user files if they just log in via the desktop client. When users log in via the website or mobile app, the password is a short time in the memory of the SpiderOak servers.

With the new subscriptions SpiderOak is still slightly more expensive than its competitors, but the difference has narrowed. Dropbox requires 10 per month for 1 terabyte of storage; Google asks $ 10 per month for the same amount, converted 8.70 euros. When those services employees can however access files of users, such as the police asks for it. In contrast, Dropbox and Google Drive offer automatic backup images via their smartphone apps; SpiderOak offers that do not.
