      Just wondering if it’s safe to use Google Drive to back up my computer’s files – which contain financial information like bank account numbers, tax statements, social security info, etc.
      Thanks so much!

      I personally would encrypt it first before uploading it. Its all about adding layers of security.

      Hello Kirsten,

      You can also use a free program called 7Zip to encrypt your data, you can find the download here.

      Once you have the program installed you can right click on a folder you would like to encrypt then backup.

      Select Add to archive > Select archive format Zip > then select your Encryption method to AES-256 and set your password > Click OK. The archive process will begin compressing and encrypting your data, the .Zip file will be located in the same location as the original.
