Windows SyncFolder appThe Windows SyncFolder app doesn't collect and doesn't use any personal information, except to cover use cases where the user must configure source or destination locations that require user credentials (account, password, key, ..) for access.
Examples of such locations are: OneDrive, FTP and SFTP servers, and NAS devices for which the user must explicitly configure credentials.
The SyncFolder app then collects and transmits personally identifiable information, such as the user’s email and password, for authentication purposes, as described in the app documentation. This information will be transmitted to the provider of the storage service. For the avoidance of doubt, SyncFolder does not use this information for any other purpose.
All credentials are saved in a encrypted area on the computer and shortly retrieved from there at the moment a connection is made to the storage service.
Users can also configure the Windows SyncFolder app to generate log data for troubleshooting purposes. This is off by default. It can be turned on by going to the Settings
page and moving the toggle switch under the "Log files" section to the on position.
The app places troubleshooting data (excluding passwords) in log files with the purpose to track down possible faults that might occur inside the app.
The log files remain on your device until you manually transmit the data.
Android and iOS SyncFolder Photos apps
The Android and iOS SyncFolder Photos apps don't collect and don't use any personal information with the exception of photos and videos. The latter can be selected by the user and presented for a upload to a computer on the same network.
So simple :)
