Xiaomi is one of the most popular tech companies out there.
For far too long, companies like Google, Microsoft, Huawei, or Xiaomi have abused their position and violated their users’ privacy. Recent events have highlighted the problems that their business models can create.
Additionally, Xiaomi is based out in China, a country that is well known for being everything but privacy-friendly.
Companies like Xiaomi collect way more data than what is actually needed. It is true that they have a lot of features and integrations, and even smart watches, but their privacy can be improved, as they are a centralized service.
Internxt built Drive with the vision of creating the first cloud storage service which presented the user with total control, security, and privacy of their files. Unlike Dropbox, Microsoft’s OneDrive, Apple’s iCloud, etc, Internxt Drive features zero-knowledge encryption, meaning that only you can truly access your files.
Unlike with traditional providers, with Internxt Drive, files are uploaded and client-side encrypted, so only you hold the decryption key of these.
Additionally, Internxt Drive’s architecture fragments your files before encrypting them, so a server never holds a whole file, but instead, an encrypted shard of it, which only you are able to decrypt.
Internxt Drive presents very similar pricing and interfaces to that of Mi Cloud, though being superior in its privacy-related features.
