    You’ve probably seen the headlines about Google’s iffy privacy practices, from listening in on private conversations to tracking your online activity. Google Drive is by far the most used cloud storage service in the world, but if Google’s privacy issues seem scary, don’t worry, you’re not stuck using it. There are plenty of Google Drive alternatives out there, and we’ve rounded up the best ones for you.

  2. Sync. com offers a backup tool and a file sharing service, rolled into one.
    Easily the most secure service on this list, is the best Google Drive alternative if you want to keep your data safe from prying eyes. It offers client-side encryption for a price that can’t be beat and even bests Google in terms of file sharing. You can find out more about in our full review.

    Cloud storage service with up to 20GB for free! Store, share and send large files to anyone. Join now and have your files everywhere you go.
    As we mentioned, pCloud’s location means it’s covered by some of the best privacy laws in the world, including the EU’s GDPR. Although it does offer client-side encryption, you’ll have to pay an extra $3.99 a month for it. pCloud’s zero-knowledge solution is called pCloud Crypto and it takes the form of a special folder on your account where the contents are kept under lock and key.

  4. Icedrive is a cloud storage, backup and file sharing service with browser, desktop and mobile apps.
    Icedrive gives you a separate folder where everything is encrypted client-side, but unlike pCloud’s Crypto folder, it doesn’t cost a penny. Like our top two choices, Icedrive doesn’t offer any collaboration options, but if it’s security and free storage you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Icedrive.

    Secure File Storage and collaboration
    MEGA had a controversial start as a successor to Kim Dotcom’s Megaupload. However, it’s been wildly popular since its inception because of its massive free cloud storage plan and its focus on privacy and security. Everything on MEGA is encrypted, from files to sharing links to its own built-in chat. See our full MEGA review for an in-depth look at this secure cloud storage solution.

    Koofr offers safe EU based cloud storage with free storage space for life and options to connect multiple cloud accounts (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive) and your personal storages.
    Overall, Koofr is a very good cloud storage service as a private alternative to Google Drive. However, if you’re transitioning from a free Drive account to Koofr, you’ll be disappointed by the lack of free storage, and if you’re used to paying a bit for a Google One subscription, you’ll find Koofr’s price tag a bit steep. That’s why Koofr takes last place on this list.

  7. Online Sync and File Sharing
    Dropbox is the OG cloud storage platform. As the cloud service that started it all, it offers one of the most polished and user-friendly experiences, as well as integration with both Office 365 and Google Workspace. However, it gives you only 2GB of free file storage, and a Dropbox subscription isn’t cheap, though the extra features might make it worth it.

  8. Secure access, sharing & file storage
    OneDrive is a cloud file storage service that’s very similar to Google Drive, but it’s run by Microsoft instead of Google. OneDrive integrates with Microsoft Office the way Drive integrates with Workspace, though OneDrive also comes with the same privacy pitfalls as Google Drive, so it’s not the best alternative.
