Degoo is the best cheap cloud storage with 100 GB of free storage. Can you believe it? You can further add up to 500 GB by referring to friends (3 GB per reference). Besides, there are two premium tiers: Pro and Ultimate.

Degoo Pro expands your capacity to 500 GB and 3 devices for only 2 GBP/month. The Ultimate version, which is not the best-unlimited cloud storage option, though, offers 10 TB of space for around 8 GBP/month or 75 GBP/year.

File sharing with Degoo is a breeze. Besides having adequate desktop abilities, the mobile apps (Android, iOS, Kindle) are even better and provide all the functionality you’d expect and more.

Phones usually have some sort of integrated cloud backup for common media files by default, but Degoo apps take things a bit further by allowing all folders to be targeted.

One of the best features is that you can access files you previously backed up from your computer to the cloud, and then send the file/location URL to others for easy sharing. This feature wasn't available in most cloud storage solutions...until Degoo showed up and changed the game everyone.

As for security, Degoo ticks pretty much all the boxes, but it’s important to note that most of the security features are available with the paid versions. That being said, with all tiers, you get 256-bit AES encryption. With the “Top Secret” folder, you create a unique password that only you know, not even Degoo.

There’s also a 2-factor authentication (2FA) sign-in option via Google account. Although Degoo doesn’t have its own 2FA, we all know that support via Google is far better than anything else out there. Other than that, there’s nothing we don’t like about this software. It’s easy-to-use, no additional redundant menus, and offers an intuitive app.

Lastly, you can make Degoo ultra-fast. As our testing showed, Degoo uses a good amount of available bandwidth when uploading— this is equivalent to downloading.

All you need to do is activate the “Turbo” mode. In some cases, this can provide 30 times faster performance than your Normal mode.

Keep That Password Handy 

The main issue with Degoo we’d say is getting your media to the cloud, in some cases. The lack of an excellent web interface can be a deal-breaker for some. Also, there isn’t any fully-featured application for desktop users. Hopefully, Degoo will sort them out soon.

In our honest opinion, the desktop app requires a lot of improvements and file transfers should use block-level logic.

Another small but notable issue we have is with the Top Secret folder. While it’s by no means a bad feature, but think of it this way… Since Degoo has no knowledge of your “secret” password, recovering a forgotten password can be a hassle. So, try our advice would be to use a password you won’t likely forget.
