Is Akruto Safe to Sync Outlook?Support
The recent hacking of private iCloud accounts may have you asking: Is Akruto safe to sync Outlook? We developed Akruto with safety and privacy in mind. With Akruto, you have complete control over your own data. No company — including Akruto — can access your personal information when you sync Outlook devices using Akruto.
Your data does not sync through the cloud
The first thing we did was make sure your information doesn’t go through the cloud when you sync Outlook contacts with Android or Windows Phone.
Now you may be thinking that one of the benefits of the cloud is that it retains your data even if a device breaks or loses all its data. Although Akruto sync software doesn’t use the cloud, you won’t have to worry about losing your data.
We added the sync history feature to cover that. It saves all your information including deleted data, whether or not it was accidental. You can review changes, additions and deletions anytime to restore deleted data or undo any changes.
We hear from many people that cloud services are notorious for cutting off data like entries with long notes and photos of contacts. In one of our videos, we pasted Shakespeare’s sonnets into a note and the entire thing transfers.
Your data syncs through a secure network
Your updates are directly entered on your device or computer. Akruto updates the information on the other device or computer through your secure wireless network. Top European computer magazine, C’t Magazin (not a typo), likes Akruto as a secure option to sync Outlook data.
To achieve this, Akruto syncs your data one of two ways:
- Wi-Fi: Sync Outlook Windows Phone and Android devices whenever your device connects to your Wi-Fi network.
- Internet: Sync Outlook devices with your computer through SSL-encrypted Internet connection that’s private and secure.
We want to protect your privacy and, at the same time, ensure that you can automatically, effortlessly and accurately sync with Outlook calendar with Android and Windows Phones. So Akruto skips the cloud, connects securely and forgoes the hassle of using USB to sync.
So whenever you leave your Wi-Fi or Internet zone, you can rest easy knowing that all of your data is with you on your devices. (One license covers unlimited compatible devices.)
How to move off the cloud
By default, Android devices sync your information through Google. And this process saves your information in the cloud. Outlook.com and Office365 do the same thing. If you use Google or Outlook.com and want to move off the cloud, you can switch to Outlook on your Windows PC. To make this happen, use POP to download Gmail emails to Outlook.
That’ll take care of the emails. Next, you can import Android contacts into Outlook. You can do the same to transfer Google Calendar to Outlook. Then you can delete everything off your Google account.
Samsung Kies alternative
If you want to sync Samsung Galaxy S5 with Outlook (or any other Samsung phone), you may have used or heard about Kies. It doesn’t take much effort to find many reports of Samsung Kies problems and Kies not connecting to a computer or phone.
Although Kies syncs other media besides Outlook calendar, contacts, tasks and notes, it’s fraught with problems. If you search the Internet for “Samsung Kies problems,” you’ll see many forums with Samsung Kies troubleshooting advice. You’ll discover that most of the steps are tedious and don’t work or cause more problems.
Akruto is a smart Samsung Kies alternative for your synchronization needs.
So yes, Akruto is safe to sync Outlook with Android and Windows Phone. And, unlike Samsung Kies, it just works. You set it and forget it. You can try Akruto free for seven days to find out for yourself.
