Are our devices really that secure? Is saving everything to the cloud the solution?

If you take all the data from a person’s phone, laptop, or any other device, you can pretty much sum up their entire life. You will know their name and where they live, who they hang out with, what work they do, what food they like, and even what they like to shop for. All of this information can be pieced together if you collect the data from a person’s devices. 

In the wrong hands, this data can be misused in a lot of different ways. Cybercrimes are at an all-time high and online criminals are constantly targeting devices so they can infect them with malware to steal data. Your data can tell a cybercriminal your banking details which they can use to steal your money. It can be held for ransom by a hacker. It can be used by companies to profile and target you with their products.

So you need to wonder, are your devices really that secure? (No, they aren’t)

Should you start saving everything to the cloud instead?  

Securing your Devices with Ziroh Store 

If you have a phone, laptop, or even a USB storage device that you store any pictures, files, or data in any form, your data is at risk. If an infected pen drive is inserted into your computer, a hacker can gain access to your files. If you click on a phishing email on your device, this is another way that a malicious virus gains access to your files. Another point to consider is that your images or files can easily be viewed by another person when you share your pen drive with them. So you can see that there are a lot of ways in which your devices can be accessed by malicious outsiders. 

Ziroh Store helps secure your devices from such possibilities that might put your data at risk. Once you install it into your device, it will encrypt every file that you store after you log in. Even if you lose your phone or someone hacks into your computer, all they will see is the encrypted form of your data. The only person who can decrypt the data is you, once you log in with your secure credentials. To any other person, it will all look like gibberish. 

Securing your Cloud Storage with Ziroh Store

The other more popular option for file storage these days is a cloud account. Cloud storage allows you to store your files online and gives you additional storage space which you might run out of on your devices. Cloud storage also allows you to access your files on different devices as long as you can log in. However, despite claims by the service providers, your data isn’t secure. And the people with the highest access to all your data are the service providers themselves. 

You have to wonder why they offer the free service in the first place. This is because they can use your data to profile you and sell it to other companies or use it to target you with ads themselves. This is how they make money in exchange for their free service. All of this is done without your express consent even though they are compliant with all the privacy laws that you assume are protecting you. Now you know why you see ads that are so highly relevant to your interests and needs. 

So how do you protect your data on the cloud? This is another benefit of Ziroh Store. Not only do you get access to Ziroh Cloud, but you can also add other cloud accounts to it. It can be used as a centralized access point for all your online cloud storage. Once you add any cloud account to your Ziroh Store, all the images or files you store on that cloud will be completely encrypted and you can also benefit from the bi-directional sync feature. The best part is, even the cloud provider cannot view or use this data anymore. The data will be decrypted only once you login through Ziroh Store. 

End Note

With Ziroh Store, your data is secure on your devices as well as cloud accounts. Everything from the file blocks and content to the metadata will be encrypted so you never have to worry about a third party decrypting and misusing your data ever again. This one extra step to secure your devices and cloud accounts will make all the difference.
