IDrive, a leading online backup services, is expanding its services beyond your local drive and deeper into the cloud. IDrive now allows users to also back up their videos and images on Facebook to its servers.
And the great news is that it will also back up all photos you are tagged in. Yes, it does not only backup all the photos and videos you have uploaded yourself on Facebook but it will also ensure you keep all these nice memories with your friends. This is not a small feature. Indeed if that friend that tagged you in great pictures you love, simply decided to delete them one day, you would lose them unless you had backed them up on the cloud before.
Facebook, the company argues, has evolved “into such an important part of social interaction that using the media site to store or share pictures / videos is frequently the chosen way of exchanging data.”
The service is now available to all IDrive users (including those on the free 5GB plan) and once all the data from Facebook is backed up, users can access their images and videos from any web browser and the company’s iOS app. An Android app, the company tells me, is “coming soon” and all the data is automatically encrypted with what IDrive calls “an NSA-proof private key option.”
