Encrypt backups before upload (for example to GDrive)
There is no option to encrypt backups. I do not trust Google or any other cloud service. Yet I could use the (otherwise completely useless) storage to put my backups there.
So please include a proper and secure encryption. Thanks!
It could be as easy as running gpg as a last step before uploading:
Encrypting (simple tar example):
tar -czf - [FOLDERS] | gpg -c --batch --passphrase [PASSWORD] -o backup.tgz.gpg
gpg -d --batch --passphrase [PASSWORD] backup.tgz.gpg | tar -xzf -
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
This is no feature whose popularity needs to be assessed. I know, the GDPR is not very popular... but we have to abide by it. Using the current "password protection" will render the user liable to prosecution since there is no protection at all. In my opinion calling it "password protection" even is a fraudulent representation.
