Sharing is…

receiving

Share some of your hard drive space, get the same cloud space in return. Store and access your data anywhere. All for free.

Secure. Private. Resilient.

We encrypt your data and distribute it across the Hive network, guaranteeing security and privacy. Only you have the key to bring it all together.

Client encryption

Your encryption key is the only one that can unlock your files. Everything is encrypted before it leaves your device, and is decrypted only when it's safely on your device again.

Privacy

We never share or sell your data, and make it impossible to access your files by anyone other than youself. Hive is engineered that way and there is no way around it.

Data resiliency

Your data is safe in Hive because it’s distributed as small chunks across many ‘nodes’ all over the Hive network. Nodes can go offline but your data stays intact.

Energy efficient

All major cloud storage companies rely on huge data centers running 24/7. Hive is different - it uses hard drives of computers like yours so it doesn’t use any extra energy.

Curious how it all works?

Simple on the outside, complex on the inside. There is a lot of ‘magic’ happening to keep your data private, safe and ready to use.
