Grid Diary Sync is a service that we have launched to automatically sync and back up your diary across all platforms and end devices.

The Grid Diary Sync service is not a centralized server in the traditional sense, you can think of it as renting a live online data relay device. To start syncing, you need to sign up for a Grid Diary account and subscribe to a paid membership.

Why did you create Grid Diary Sync?

We have two main reasons:

Stability and reliability.

Dropbox and iCloud were never 100% successful for all of our users.

On Dropbox, we had continued challenges with duplicate entries appearing in journals. On iCloud, we had problems with data loss. With both services, when things went wrong, they will out of our control because they are not tailored for Grid Diary.

Therefore, our technical requirements and product roadmap are not the same as either iCloud or Dropbox’s. And we don’t need to wait for them to change their services to meet our data needs. With our own service, we can quickly respond to changing needs and bugs that might arise.

Security.

We've architected the new Grid Diary Sync to store your data securely.

By default, Grid Diary Sync encrypts the data on our server and securely transfers the data from the server to the Grid Diary app. Meanwhile, it will also encrypt your data when your devices are syncing.

You can always choose to either sync your data to our server or store your data locally when you are only using one device.

Grid Diary Sync also support a feature called end-to-end encryption. It utilizes a user-generated, private key to encrypt all entries before they reach Grid Diary's server. Maximum security is assured for your data since the encryption key will be only held by the end-users.

Is My Data Safe and Private?

Grid Diary uses industry-standard encryption technology to securely transfer data between the device and our server. You can also choose to use it standalone only, so that data is only stored on the current device and not sent to the server.

Take advantage of the new end-to-end encryption feature added in version 3.0. You can also encrypt all data for transfer to our server. The data can only be decrypted and viewed by the user with the encryption key, ensuring maximum privacy of your data.

In short: you are the ultimate owner of the data. And, you are also the sole owner of the encryption key.
