end-to-end-encryption for some types

Proton Drive constitutes part of Proton’s grand plan to bring secure, privacy-focused Google-alternative products to market.

Or, perhaps more accurately in the case of most Mac users, an alternative to Apple’s iCloud.

Indeed, Proton Drive promises full encryption for files and folders by default — although Apple did recently introduce end-to-end-encryption for some types of data on iCloud, it has to be manually activated by users. Proton Drive, on the other hand, says it uses full encryption across all data, including metadata and file-names, by default.
