We all need to store our files. There are billions of files created per day, individuals and companies grow increasingly reliant on a more reliable repository, cloud storage.

Our increasing demand for cloud-based storage resulted in the rise of numerous cloud storage providers and pCloud is one of them. pCloud is based in Switzerland that caters to a worldwide audience.

pCloud is a cloud- based digital asset management platform and cloud storage that provides access to all your digital content including images, video, audio, documents, and more- anytime, anywhere, on any device. Keep all your important files safe and centralized in one place. You can share with team members, clients, etc. across the globe and give them controlled access and permissions to your digital library.

It has a user-friendly interface that clearly shows where everything is located and what it does. The software is available for multiple platforms – iOS and Android devices, Mac, Windows, and Linux. Depending on your tier, you can either have 15 days (about 2 weeks)’ worth of revisions (for free accounts) or 30 days (about 4 and a half weeks)’ worth of revisions (for paid accounts).

By installing pCloud on your computer (through its desktop application pCloud Drive), the app creates a secure virtual drive which expands your local storage space. Every change you make in your pCloud can be seen immediately on your computer, phone, or tablet. All your devices are instantly synchronized, and you have direct file access to any update you make.

pCloud’s latest feature Branded links allows you to customize download links with your brand’s style and logo.

pCloud Crypto is the highest level of security for your files. You could save your sensitive information, and your private documents in the cloud, and to have them on any device. Nobody has access to these files, including the administrators of pCloud. With client-side encryption, your files are encrypted locally on your computer and only the encrypted information is uploaded in the cloud. The files never leave your device without the encryption.

pCloud has more than 9,000,000 users (about half the population of New York) worldwide for only 6 years and credits this growth to their service’s flexibility, intuitive user experience, and reliability.
