Best Free Cloud Storage For 2020 And 2021 – Top 10 Free Storage That You Should Use

Welcome guys, Here are the Top 10 Best Free Cloud Storage For 2020 & 2021.

As you all know, there is a big update in Google Storage Policy that will be implemented in June 2021. Many users are worried about this update because Google has mentioned very clear that after some time period all data will be deleted automatically which will not be used and that includes all our photos and documents.

Now the problem is that our Google Drive has a lot of photos and documents that we need but we do not use them. So in that case we have a chance of data loss.

So with that in mind, in today’s article, I will tell you about Top 10 best free cloud storage that are trusted and free and our data on them will be secure and private.

But one thing keeps in mind Google Storage will be always the best choice for everyone instead of other storage options.

Hi Guys, My Name is Adeel Qadir and Here I help you in taking a better software purchasing decision and Best Free Cloud Storage is a topic on which I have discussed a lot on this blog and today we will talk about free cloud storage.

I have analyzed many factors here,

  • Storage Space
  • Uploading / Downloading Speed
  • Privacy Policy
  • User Interface
  • Sharing Functionality

So these are the main factors on which I have decided without any delay let’s start with the No. 1

Best Free Cloud Storage For 2021

First i talk about Google Driver that is the very famous cloud storage. Google Drive is with almost everyone as you all make the Gmail account, which comes with 15GB of Storage. 

But recently some changes have been made. Google Drive will fill up soon, as it will count all the photos and the documents as the data.

You are getting 15GB of space but Google’s Privacy Policy is not that much good. You can use Google Drive. I personally use it for documents and collaboration, it’s perfect for that.

You can use this for free, If you do not have a problem with its privacy policy, you can use the 15 GB of free storage.

As per Google’s recent update that will implement in June 2021, If you buy its ay premium package then google will never delete any type of your data.

best and free cloud storage options for 2020

Google has said that if you buy any of its premium packages, its updated policies will not apply to them. Premium accounts will remain the same as before and will not be affected in any way.

So if you like Google Drive, you can buy its 100 GB package which is not very expensive.

No. 1

One Drive By Microsoft

Number 1 option in my list is OneDrive which is from Microsoft. With OneDrive You will get 5Gb of free space. I personally use it for office documents and OneNote, you can also use it for that.

It comes with Windows 10 and its biggest advantage is that you can access all your OneDrive files in Windows 10 without taking up space on your PC.

You can also use your mobile device to scan and store documents, receipts, business cards, notes, and more in OneDrive.

OneDrive personal vault is another good option and you can store important files and photos with an added layer of protection in OneDrive Personal Vault.

No. 2

Mega.nz

The No.2 on our list is Mega.nz. It is a very popular cloud storage option. If I talk about its paid plans then it becomes quite competitive, But its free plans are good.

You get 15GB free storage with zero-knowledge encryption. Speeds are good and the privacy policy is also good compared to Google. So it is a good option for free.

They market around 50GB but the actual is of 15GB, The rest is depended on the achievements You will have to do referrals, you have to complete the tasks given by them, then you will get it but that is also not permanent.

In Actual you will get 15GB, but it is good as there is zero-knowledge encryption, speed, and the privacy policy is also decent. So it is a good option for free.

No. 3

pCloud

The next cloud storage option we have is of pCloud. You get 10GB of free space but as soon as you will open the account you will get 2GB of space and the rest of the space occurs when you install their app, upload files, and turn on automatic backups. As soon as you do such steps, you will get 7GB easily. The remaining 3GB would be available by user referral.

It is a good option because the privacy policy is good. The servers are in EU. You get good speeds and sharing options are also good. It is a decent option for free but there is a catch here.

In Free, You don’t get the zero-knowledge encryption, it’s available on the paid version. There exists a 6-month inactivity clause. If you didn’t login into your pCloud account, your account will be deleted.

So I think pCloud is a good option for free and paid. If you are thinking to upgrade, you can buy this and this is one of the best options right now.

No. 4

SYNC

Sync is a privacy-focused company, You will get 5GB free as soon as you create your account. The best part is their referral system is so good. You can refer up to 15 people to get the 15GB extra.

So it would be a total of 20GB free cloud storage on sync. You get a good privacy policy and there is zero-knowledge encryption, Sharing options are also good and they have a good past record.

The best part about sync.com is privacy policy and security features. You can also get up to 30GB of free storage by referral.

No. 5

MediaFire

The next we have is Mediafire. It is a very old service which came in 2006. I have been viewing this for a very long time ago and they cannot evolve during time.

It was established basically for the file transfer but now they are operating as cloud storage, but at present, they are doing good in both of the cases.

You will get 10 GB free space, and it is a good option for transferring files, Do not view it as cloud storage as it is not ready for that.

Talking about its cons, I have seen a very slow upload speed in an 844MB File, it took 17 mins for that. Security is not that good, they don’t have encryption.

End to end encryption is common among all the cloud storages whether it is Google, JioCloud or Degoo. Here we are not getting it. So for the security, it is a zero.

The privacy policy is not that good, They will scan your files and all the copyrighted content will be automatically removed, just as Google does, Whatever ads you will click since it is based on ads, you will see them in their free version. So what all you will interact, the information will be collected and based on that information you would be send ads.

They don’t have a desktop app, so personally, I won’t recommend it. If you have to transfer media files, and there are no sensitive files. If you are a YouTuber, and you have to send a video file for editing it.

So you can use that but again its speeds won’t be good. So it is not a good option in my opinion. We have better option for this.

No. 6

IceDrive

The next option is IceDrive. It is a new cloud storage company but they are establishing themselves slowly.

You will get 10GB of free cloud storage. They have good speeds and the user interface is one of the best out there.

They have a good privacy policy. I have not faced any sort of problems, as I have the paid plan. The free plan is also good but you won’t get zero-knowledge encryption in the free plan, but still, it’s good. The sharing options are limited.

No. 7

Degoo

So you get 100GB of free space and the best part is, it can get extended up to 500GB. This can be extended by referral and by viewing ads.

So only its storage is good, rest I don’t like anything about it. Speed is average not good or not bad. Ads are everywhere, in the free version, in the app and website everywhere you will find ads only.

There is no zero-knowledge encryption in its free plans. According to their terms and conditions, if you haven’t used degoo for 2 months they will be deleting your account.

This is more dangerous than pCloud as they are deleting within 6 months but here the time period is limited, the account will be automatically deleted.

There is no 2 Factor authentication, You can’t upload large files here, In the free plan, only a maximum of 512MB file size is allowed. There are no sharing options available.

So degoo at present, I don’t like its premium version but free is enough, I have a neutral opinion on this If you do not have problems with ads, and if you constantly login within 2 months then you can look towards Degoo.

No. 8

Tresorit

The next option is Tresorit. If you have to send and transfer the large files securely and privately, Tresorit is a good option for you.

In Tresorit you will get up to 5GB of Storage, you can easily transfer files, Tresorit is best for online file transfer, its also best in terms of security and user interface.

No. 9

GitHub

The next option we have is GitHub. GitHub is a good option for developers. If you have projects you can upload them to private repositories. Private repositories also provide free space which is 500MB, which is not too much.

If you have 2-3 Android projects or websites, all that should come in 500MB. You can upload it on Github for Free. You will get versioning support and all the features of GitHub. It is good for backing up your projects.

If you are a developer, you should know how to use Github.

No. 10

JioCloud

The next option is JioCloud. This option is very famous, it comes from the official reliance JIO company. If you are a Jio user, you will get 5GB free and for Non-Jio Users will get only 2 GB is free.

It can be extended up to 50GB when you refer it to your friends. It has good backup options, its interface is good. In JioCloud you get 2 Languages Support: Hindi and English.

Talking about its cons, its major con is its speed. I do not like its speed at all.

It was very slow and sync.com which was in the US where you all are getting zero-knowledge encryption. The speed there is good when compared to this.

The next is its privacy policy, They are collecting every sort of data from you, that you are uploading, In the disclosure, it is mentioned that whatever data is been collected. It is been sent to affiliates, group companies, consultants, vendors, and contractors, on a need-to-know basis they are providing the data.

So I didn’t like the privacy policy that much, If you are cloud storage, your privacy policy must be better than this. So personally I had higher expectations from Jio Cloud but after seeing its speed and privacy policy, it has all been trashed down.

In the future, I am hoping that they improve speed and bring the zero-knowledge encryption functionality. Their interface is good according to the free one but the improvements can be made.

Conclusions

So these were some free cloud storage options for you.

You can use its combination together.

You can also create multiple IDs.

If I recommend my personal opinion then if you have to start with the free cloud storage Mega.nz, pCloud, Icedrive and sync, are the best options for you.

If you have to transfer the files, then Tresorit is the best option for you.

If you get more downloads or user attention then use MediaFire, Because people like downloading from Mediafire than others.

If your cloud storage space gets full with all these options then you can go for a paid cloud storage,

If you have data that is above 500GB or in TB then you can look towards lifetime plans,

pCloud and Icedrive has lifetime plans,
