Simply hit the sync button to encrypt and upload your device files to your cloud. These files are now encrypted in a secure format. There is an option to clear these files if you wish to remove them from the cloud completely.
Q3. How do I contact someone using the messenger?

Q5. Is my data safe and secure?
Yes. get2Clouds® uses state-of-the-art encryption. The data is sent via secure socket layer (https) and you create your own personal encryption password.
Q6. How do I ensure my password is secure?
It is recommended to include both upper and lower case letters, at least one special character and one or more numbers, and it should be at least eight characters long. Combining two or more unrelated words is also a good method to use. A helpful way to memorize a complex password is to remember a sentence like ‘This year I go to Italy on Friday July 6!’ and use the first characters as the actual password. In this case ‘TyIgtIoFJ6!’. This method even helps against shoulder surfing. See Wikipedia.org for detailed information.
Q7. Can I see who reads messages I send using the messenger?
Yes. You can send someone a SelfieCheckr message and they can’t see the content unless they send a Selfie straight back. To do this, click the purple SelfieCheckr icon on the far right under the chat bubble. Or, to send someone a Selfie via SelfieCheckr, click the blue SelfieCheckr icon second from the right within the chat bubble.
