    Ive only just started using it, Ive put some of my bots on there so i dont have to keep copy and pasting between local comp and server, but is it also safe to keep more imporant stuff like seo projects with all the kw data etc on there?

    Dropbox is hosted on Amazon S3 and is a cloud service. There is always a chance with cloud services that someone will be able to steal your data. For something like kw data, you should be pretty safe. The chances of someone knowing its there and then having the ability to hack it is pretty slim. I wouldn't keep anything that you don't want to government to see but. Amazon makes it very clear that if the government asks for anything on their servers that they will hand it over.

    Use Spideroak - Snowden recommended it . Similar to Dropbox - Free till 2 GB and all the data is encrypted.

    Dropbox read your data , they have admitted it . But I don't think they would be interested in your data .
    But keep your data atleast in 3 places to be on safe side. 1 locally and 2 on cloud . Mega offers encryption if you are worried about that .

    I'd say no.
    Amazon's cloud is great, but unless you pay the data security is none existent.

    well unless they are other internet marketers i dont think it matters :p

    altho my zenno bots i take with pride. i realised that its dangerous how it automatically updates all cos at first i thought its like having 3 copies however i realised its only one since it writes over everything locally.

    i wont put bank detials and such on there naturally.

    I would recommend using something more secure such as RoboForm Everywhere, it allows you to access passwords, notes etc safely anywhere anytime. I've personally never had security issues on DropBox but I would recommend staying safe this day in age.

    Depends how worried you are about your privacy. Not an issue for normal stuff that would not force you to quit marketing if leaked.
