Synchronizing your Android device's contacts, Outlook files, notes and other important files with your PC can be risky if it's done via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or other wireless systems since the transmission can be hacked by cybercriminals to stole your information.

Supposedly, this program lets you make this process more secure using the USB connection of your Android device to transfer your files securely.

It may sound like a good idea, but it is not that easy. First of all, you need to enable the Developer options on your phone and then enable the USB debugging feature. Then, the program will install several apps on your device in order to connect it securely to your PC.

Although the process is pretty easy, if you are like me and don't want to mess with the advanced configuration of your devices, this may sound strange to you. Also, despite the fact that I followed faithfully all the directions provided in the program's tutorial, I wasn't able to complete the process. The apps did install on my phone, but an error message appeared on my PC screen every time I tried to connect my device. I used a Huawei smartphone with Android 5.0, which is a pretty standard device, so it is possible that the program can work only with some device models but not with others.

Thus, if the supposed features of the program catch your attention, then you may want to download the shareware version and check if it is compatible with your device.

Review summary

Pros

  • Supposedly, the program reduces the risk of your information to be stolen

Cons

  • I couldn't make it work, although I followed faithfully all the directions
  • It is not a plug-and-play application. You need to modify the settings of your Android device before using the program
  • Given the fact that wireless connections are increasingly secure and that many phones and devices have their own sync managers, this program can be redundant
  • The cost is not very affordable
