There’s nothing like breaking out family photo albums and reliving memories with the clan. Or looking back at treasured mementos like holiday cards, diplomas and wedding invitations. And this is true even if it’s all digital rather than physical.

But just as a family can lose photos and papers to fires and floods, it can lose digital items, too. And that’s why it’s crucial to have a backup, like secure cloud data storage from pCloud. The company’s Family Plan, which lets everyone share in the fun, is deeply discounted for a short time. Plus, it comes with extra security in a special Easter promotion campaign.

Safeguard data with pCloud Family Plan

pCloud offers affordable, super-secure, cloud-based storage and backup for individuals, businesses and families. The company is based in Switzerland, which means its service is subject to that country’s strong privacy laws. And privacy is one of the things you want in cloud storage.

Clearly, pCloud is doing something right. The service has built up a clientele of 14 million users.

Once you sign up, you get to choose between two data regions where your data will be stored. You can pick the United States (Dallas, Texas) or the European Union (Luxembourg).

In either case, pCloud set up its data centers based on intense risk assessment to prove the highest quality and reliability. The centers are certified under SSAE reporting standards and comply with high-level physical and technical security applications.

Easter promotion: Lifetime Family Plan with Crypto

pCloud offers numerous plans for different users. Its Family Plan allows you to share up to 2TB of lifetime storage with premium features for five people — you and up to four other family members.

In the plan, each user gets their own space to use as they wish. It’s private and secure. As with other pCloud plans, the Family Plan includes a variety of collaboration tools, access and syncing across devices, a built-in video player, data recovery options and other benefits.

The collaboration tools prove especially useful for families, who might want to work with your certain content together. The tools let you share links and file requests, invite users to shared folders, get detailed stats for your links, and brand your shared links.

Best of all, you get all these benefits after paying once — and you get them forever.

What is pCloud Crypto?

As part of pCloud’s Easter promotion, the Family Plan comes with the company’s top-tier encryption, pCloud Crypto. It’s even better than the stout security the service applies to regular plans. And each family member gets it.

The “unbreakable security,” as the company calls it, can keep your private family files confidential. It lets you access private files from any device while keeping them hidden from others.

As a demonstration of the safety of Crypto encryption, pCloud offered $100,000 to 2,860 hackers from all over the world to see if they could hack the system in 180 days. And, guess what? They all failed to crack it. Not many cloud storage providers can say that about their security.

Act fast: How the pCloud Easter promotion works

pCloud’s Easter promotion offers the lifetime Family Plan, with Crypto included, at a discount of up to 78% off the regular price. However, the price will rise every hour after the first 24 hours of the promo campaign.

The promo campaign starts on April 14, 2022, at 6 a.m. UTC (that’s April 13 at 11 p.m. PDT or April 14 at 2 a.m. EDT). In the campaign’s first 24 hours, the price is just $400. After that, it rises. The maximum price will be $625.

Price: $400 to $625
