Now, the iTwin has been updated to include SecureBox, an encryption feature which utilises Dropbox. We’ll take you through iTwin SecureBox and show you exactly how it works. We’re also giving away 5 iTwins at the end of this review! So if you’re into file security and encryption, or if you’re someone who values privacy, you won’t want to miss this giveaway.
Today, SugarSync 2.0 has been redesigned to be even easier to use. It’s more intuitive than ever before and provides better control over shared files and folders compared to its major competitors, including Dropbox. I’ll take you through the new interface in just a second. You’ll also stand a chance of winning one of 25 SugarSync annual plans (first year free), with 30 GB of storage.
Like HTTP, which your browser uses to communicate with websites, BitTorrent is just a protocol. You could use your browser to download pirated content, just as you could use a BitTorrent client to download pirated content, but that isn’t the only possible use.

But that’s far from its only use, and the protocol still has a lot of value to people who don’t pirate.
Cloud-based file sync services are easy to use and work well, but your privacy may or may not be your first priority.

If you’re longing for an alternative, you should check out BitTorrent Sync.
