    Hey folks. I'm looking for the best cloud backup service for protecting data with encryption.

    I also need to be able to backup all my devices, so compatibility is essential. And I don't want to be charged per device if possible.

    Just curious about other people's experiences with services.

    Thanks!

    Just to follow-up in case someone checks out my thread looking for the same answer: I ended up going with IDrive Online Backup. They offer universal backup for Android as well as iOS devices, plus computers, so I was able to backup all of my devices at no extra cost.

    They also use private key encryption, so I got to choose the key that unlocks my data, and it's not kept on IDrive's, any third-party's, servers. That means only I can view my encrypted files.

    IDrive just released a wireless drive called IDrive Wi-Fi that comes with a year subscription. I decided to take them up on this because the deal was very fairly priced and I wanted to be able to quickly backup a lot of files to a local drive as well as have the files secure in the cloud. So far I'm very pleased with IDrive's service. The interface is easy to work with, they're super-secure and you can't beat the price.

    Thanks, I started using it as well pretty recently from a promotional offer. I haven't restored anything yet, but it seems to handle backups well.
