Koofr Features / Mar 03 2020

How is Koofr different from other cloud storage solutions?

Cloud storage is becoming increasingly popular for both personal and business use. It helps you organize your data and keep it safe, making it easy to access your files anytime and anywhere, as long as you have a working internet connection. There are many different providers on the market, so we want to tell you what makes Koofr stand out.

[Updated in 2020 and 2024: We added information about Microsoft Office for the web, the Facebook and Instagram transfer tool and new screenshots for Receive files option.]

[2022 update: You can now use Koofr Vault, an open source, client-side, zero-knowledge encrypted storage application by Koofr, providing an extra layer of security for your files.]

There are many providers in the cloud storage market, which is constantly growing and expanding. That is why it can get tough to choose the right provider, which will cover all your needs.

We want to tell you how Koofr stands apart from other cloud storage solutions that you can see on the market, and perhaps make your choice a bit easier.

(1) No tracking

We can proudly say that Koofr does not track its users in any way. We are a security and privacy-focused company. Read more about our views on privacy and tracking in our blogpost.

(2) We support WebDAV

While some of the other cloud storage solutions on the market are abandoning their WebDAV support, we are sticking to it. Since WebDAV is an older protocol it can be slow for large amounts of files, but that does not make it an any less useful solution for many different problems. Check out our blog for our many suggestions on how to use WebDAV with Koofr.

(3) No limits on how many devices you can connect

We do not have a limit on number of devices you can connect to your Koofr account and we are not planning on adding one.

(4) The new and improved Koofr text editor

With our new in-app text editor, you can now write, edit and view short or long texts and meeting notes directly in the Koofr web app, or even work on your programming projects without leaving Koofr. The new text editor enables also syntax highlighting in various languages, autosave function, the transformation of letter cases, folding and unfolding of the text, a quick overview of the document in the edit mode, opening the available Command Palette with right-click and other awesome features.
