More than 2,000 computer specialists failed to break pCloud's client-side encryption software - pCloud Crypto.

Less than 30 days remaining till the end of the pCloud Crypto Hacking Challenge! For the past two months more than 2,000 computer specialists failed to break pCloud's file encryption functionality - pCloud Crypto. The challenge was launched at the end of September. By now, the highest percentage of the hacking attempts have come from the US – 22.05%, followed by India - 11.81% and Great Britain - 10.14%.

“In order to show how confident we are in our work, we are putting the real platform to the test,” said pCloud's CEO Mr. Tunio Zafer. The registered participants are given access to an account containing an encrypted folder. Whoever succeeds in decrypting the locked information and send the plain-text files to pCloud will receive an award of $20,000 or its equivalent in Bitcoin. The challenge will be opened for hacking attempts until December 28, 2015.

“The pCloud Crypto protection is a revolutionary way to keep users' personal data safe and secure,” said Mr. Zafer. “Only the user and no one else has access to their files. Even pCloud's administrators are unable to see what is inside the encrypted folders.”
