Regardless of what type of account you have at pCloud, we make sure your data stays secure. All of the files you store in pCloud are secured with 256-bit AES method of encrypting during and after transfer. In addition, upon transfer, pCloud also applies TLS/SSL channel protection.
Securing your files is not limited to potential hacks only, but to protection from potential hardware failure as well.After your data is uploaded onto the pCloud servers, we keep 5 copies on at least three server locations in a highly secure data storage center, monitored 24/7.
pCloud Encryption, on the other hand, is an optional extra layer of file protection for your sensitive data, which encrypts the information you upload on your device, before its transfer.
