    Just saw this highlighted on WPCentral (Windows Phone is getting this soon), but if you want full AES encryption if your documents stored in any of those online storage places, this looks to be the way to do it. Works on any Mac, PC, iDevice or Android device. (Windows phone coming).

    Description: Boxcryptor protects your files in the cloud no matter if you use Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, SugarSync,, or any other major cloud storage provider. It also supports all the clouds that use the WebDAV standard such as Cubby, Strato HiDrive, and ownCloud.

    Yeah, I've been using Boxcryptor for a while.

    I get the same sick feeling with these programs as when a dialog box pops up in OSX (or any OS for that matter) prompting you to enter you admin password (when you install new software, for example). How do I know that it's OS itself asking for admin password, and not the installer itself imitating this dialog (after all, it's just pixels on screen; you can imitate any dialog easily) and possibly compromising your security?

    Soooo... how can we be sure that this Boxcryptor is not a thing created by the very people who are interested in sticking their noses into people's secrets? :rolleyes:
