comment What are some considerations before moving personal data to Google Drive?
Encryption IS a secure method. BUT the question is: secure against what threat? No measure is ever a silver bullet, and in that way, there is no 'secure' method to do anything. It is always a question of the nature of the threat you are needing to secure against.

comment How to block network scans with pfsense?
