Review About 4shared Backup by Handy Backup

Is 4shared Safe for Backup?


The correct answer is “no”. The 4shared file and storage solution is not quite safe or well-protected storage. However, you can always add to 4shared backup security by implementing the Handy Backup built-in encryption tool, which provides enough security for up to most sensitive data.

Using 4Shared as Backup Source


Despite 4shared is a cloud service by type, you can find the 4shared plug-in on Step 2 as a backup data source in the Other section, not in Cloud. This is because the primary 4shared intention is to be a file exchanger, not a typical storage cloud. Click on its name on Step 2, connect and select data as usual.
