Is DropBox Secure for Online Data Sharing?

Episode 1786 (59:20)

Matthew from Memphis, TN
DropBox

Matthew wants to know if DropBox is secure. Leo says that DropBox encrypts data to protect it, but they also hold the encryption keys. Still, it's pretty affordable. And if users are worried about them having encryption keys, they can encrypt their data before uploading to DropBox. There are also three different levels of permissions for sharing, so that adds to security. Leo also recommends Google Drive.
