There are many articles, which I have read over the years, where they have issues of storing "personal" files and some do not like the use of cloud systems unless it uses a heavy duty encryption system for the whole process, including during the upload/download process over the Net.

To be honest, with all I have read, I do not "trust" Cloud services that are not located in and administered by the business IT department.

The need for a "secured" WiFi access point is another drawback. I rarely am able to find any WiFi access where I need to use my laptop, or tablet, outside my home/office network. The only access I have outside my apartment is my own WiFi network, when I place a secondary access point so I can use it in the common area[s] 10 floors below it in living room window.

Actually, with Ubuntu having a Cloud version, it might be easier to setup your own Cloud service in your home/work environment so can "trust" the service.

The site wants me to install a client, what is this client used for?
My antivirus program claims it contained "Variant.Graftor.5639" and
The client is exactly the same as the Dropbox (or Microsoft's OneDrive)
client. It syncs the cloud files with a folder on your drive. The advantage
is that if you don't have internet connection you can still use the offline
LibreOffice to work on the offline file and it will be synced when you are
connected. In addition it is a backup on your own computer so if the cloud
service is discontinued you still have your files, which to me makes all
sense ;)

I believe your antivirus is being overcautious about a program that is
uploading files to the internet (but that is how a sync client should work)

Hope this helps
(again, I'm not affiliated to the service or company, I'm just spreading
what I consider good news, so don't shoot the messenger )
