Keep Your Information on Your Own Deviceswebdev
Are you concerned about your privacy? A lot of apps out there allow you to store and sync your data via the cloud, but when you do this, you never know where your information ends up and what happens to it. AkrutoSync provides you with the ability to sync without storing data in the cloud.
The main feature of AkrutoSync is the ability to direct sync via your wireless network. You don’t need to create an online account, and you don’t have to save your information to the Cloud, where you have no idea who can see it. You also don’t have to create an account and upload your personal information online anywhere.
If you use an Android phone and sync your information using Google, they save that information in the Cloud. Microsoft does the same thing on Windows phones. However, if you use AkrutoSync, you can directly update and sync your information with your phone and PC without saving it anywhere but on your own devices.
Your data is your own. You shouldn’t have to have someone else (like Microsoft or Google) “host” your personal information, email and phone contacts, and sent and received messages. These are yours and yours alone. You should be able to keep them synced and updated without a middleman service compromising your security.
A local sync for Outlook on PC and phone will allow you to bypass issues that Google’s had with their Gmail service. According to ZDNet, Gmail – at nearly ten years old – has had building problems with security and privacy. The platform, formerly cool and clean, has become cluttered and messy. It’s undocumented and grows clumsier by the day. Why trust your information to such a mess?
Though he wasn’t speaking directly about AkrutoSync when he said this, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has voiced issues with cloud-based storage, saying, “I really worry about everything going to the cloud. I think there are going to be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years […] With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away […] A lot of people feel, ‘Oh, everything is really on my computer,’ but I say the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it.”
Akruto agrees with Mr. Wozniak and has found a great way to sync your data without the cloud.
