Sync is a service I discovered when for some strange reason the Personal Vault disappeared from my desktop Onedrive. Using Duckduckgo to search for secure alternatives for my sensitive, personal documents, I wanted something that would give a reasonable amount of free space for documents that did not take up much room.
Ghostvolt, right from the start, sets out its stall on the importance of adhering to the numerous data protection legislation around the world and the heavy issues that result from not ensuring data held is not properly protected. Despite the stern warning and the first sight that Ghostvolt is complicated, it is one of the simplest data encryption services to use. If you are familiar with Windows Explorer, you can easily use Ghostvolt.
Trello has been around for many years and it is highly regarded as a task management/project management tool. Some years back, I was doing consultancy for an organisation and tried to get members of the marketing and communications team to use Trello as it was ideal for planning and tracking projects and tasks within those projects.

Bitwarden is that rare example of my credo that if you aren’t paying for a product, you are the product. Password managers are another spoke in the wheel of security measures that are increasingly becoming essential. I started with Lastpass but found that too flaky and Dashlane was a bit too aggressive.

You could access cyberspace via either AOL or CompuServe and, on the latter, I joined a teleworking forum with like-minded individuals and we eventually formed a four-year project for the European Commission.
