The ONLY cloud storage that is truly private

Hesitant about prying eyes viewing your files? Well, we’re beefing up your mobile security.

Time to Get Organized

Drag and drop. How much simpler can it get? With the new browser file management, you can upload files by dragging any file directly into your browser. You can also create, rename and share your files and folders directly at my.bitcasa.com. Now if only organizing your house was that easy! Don’t forget, you can stream your music and videos from the web without any wait time or making space to download files.

A Fresh New Web Experience at my.bitcasa.com

Over the last few months our developers have been heads down working on creating a more intuitive and higher performing Web experience. Many of these changes were the direct result of what we heard from you and the stuff you care about.

For those of you that haven’t used our Web access you should check it out. Go to my.bitcasa.com from any browser (you don’t need to install Bitcasa first) and use it as a fast & easy way to stream your music, videos and photo albums anywhere you might be. The Web interface not only gives you access to all your content, but it also plays videos natively in your browser.

A Better Web Experience

Here are some of the latest editions to the new Bitcasa Web experience at my.bitcasa.com:

1. A Crisp New Look

We are now optimized for mobile phones and tablets, creating a really great experience for anytime, anywhere instant access to all your digital goods (music, videos, photos, etc.).

3. Shorter Send Links
We have taken a hint from the folks at Bitly and shortened our sharing links so they’re easier to include in your emails, Facebook posts, and tweets.

4. My Drive is the new Folders

We have renamed the “Folders” view to “My Drive” to better reflect all the content you have on Bitcasa. Click it to see what’s on your Infinite Drive. We will be doing this across all our applications for a more seamless experience.

5. A Better Photo Viewing Experience

We know that album art from your music collection can clutter your Photos view. We now filter for any small photos under 50kb in size to be excluded from the “Photos” section.

If you have questions about how my.bitcasa.com works, please check out this post which highlights some commonly asked questions and gives advice on how to get started.

An improved Web experience is one of the many things we are working on and you’ll be the first to know as soon as we have any new updates.
