Security & Data centers

Is Filecamp reliable, secure, and confidential? Is our data safe? Where is the data hosted?

Filecamp uses Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for all data storage. By choosing Google as hosting partner,  Filecamp is built on the best-in-class infrastructure engineered to handle the most data-intensive work on the planet.

Even though our hosting partner, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), provides data redundancy on all disks, we are performing daily backups (Google snapshots) of all system data. These snapshots are stored for 30 days and can be restored (for a fee) if you accidentally have deleted files from your account (and emptied your trash).
