Trends of today

Cloud storage is now becoming the next big trend of the modern century where users are finding merits only. For example, cloud storage is bringing ways where users find compete comfort or convenience in storing their data on the cloud. Not long ago, we were short of options and only a physical tool (like hard drive or a USB) was available. We weren’t aware what the future was holding for us and when it came, it made an impact.

We won’t be wrong to say that sooner than later, these USB drives would become part of history and would longer stay an integral part of our daily lives. These portable devices were known for their portability and convenience but are no longer needed to the average user as cloud has replaced it.

Furthermore, USB drives didn’t took too long to get infected with malicious malware and viruses which also became a reason of for the lesser use of these drives.

Cloud Storage

There are about four major players in the field of cloud storage that are known for offering ample amount of storage space to the masses for data storage. For example, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and Box Account. All of them are of equal importance and provide regular space intervals for data storage. The best part about cloud storage is that it does not bound you to travel with a USB drive as no matter where you go, all you need is your login credentials to access your respective cloud account and access your precisely stored files quickly.

The process

However, if you are one of those who aren’t satisfied with only a single cloud account and are in need of multiple storage accounts due to too much data? Don’t worry this is also possible. There’s a software that goes by the name Cloud Secure that lets you access multiple cloud accounts (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Box Account) using a single master password. How is this done? Read on. To do so, you first need to install the software ‘Cloud Secure’ on your PC. Once done, open the software where you would see all the installed cloud storage accounts on your PC being shown on the front face of the software. Their status of being ‘protected’ or ‘unprotected’ would be visible as well which you can alter as per your preference. To lock secure Google drive, Dropbox or any cloud account for instance Dropbox, tap on the ‘Lock’ option near Dropbox and the protection would turned on denoted by the color green. In the opposite case i.e. when the cloud account is not locked, it would be denoted by a transparent color as ‘off’.

In addition, you can lock all the four cloud accounts with a single click by tapping on ‘Lock All’ button located at the bottom of the interface. Similarly, to unlock all the installed ‘locked’ cloud accounts with a single click, tap on ‘Unlock All’. In this way, you can either lock or unlock the cloud accounts easily without any issue.

But that’s not all as this software lets you access your respective ‘locked’ cloud account even when it is locked. To do so, tap on the ‘view’ button located on the right side of the interface. However, do note that this software only supports four cloud accounts namely Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Box Account and if you haven’t got any one of them, you would be shown the option of ‘Install now’ on the right side of the interface.

Conclusion

Hence, if you are in possession of limitless amount of data and you are unable to manage it properly, start using these cloud accounts and manage them as well as protect them using Cloud Secure where you can use a single password (master password) to access all your accounts with dependable security. No need to open each cloud account separately as technology has now improved so why not use it?
