All data Clipà.Vu ever uploads to Dropbox is encrypted. There are however privacy aspects you should think about. For example: Do you want to mix your private clips with your work related ones? Think about those before adding just another computer to Clipà.Vu Cloud Sync flow.
To use Dropbox as the underlying cloud storage service Clipà.Vu does not require Dropbox desktop client (the one that normally sits in your tray area) being installed on your computer. All you need is a valid Dropbox account and a successful connection procedure that Clipà.Vu application offers.
You might experience many annoying Dropbox notifications…
Dropbox is an amazing service with many useful features but one of them can become a problem for you. If Dropbox desktop client is installed on your computer you will be notified about every single Dropbox change. That is very useful if you work with your Dropbox files directly, it can however become quite disturbing if used by any 3rd party app (Clipà.Vu in this case) as its underlying cloud service. We have contacted Dropbox support with the request to mute these notification. Unfortunately this request does not seem to get much priority yet.
