What Is The Latest pCloud Update About?

With the latest update, pCloud lets you select the server location where you want to store your data in the United States (Dallas, Texas) or European Union (Luxembourg). As pCloud is based in Switzerland, it complies with all the EU and Swiss privacy laws — some of the strictest laws in the world — like GDPR and Zero-knowledge privacy.

So once selected, the data from the server location cannot be moved or transferred to any other server without the knowledge or specific permission of the user, making it completely secure. That means there is no way for US law enforcement and government authorities with legal access to compromise user data if the user selects the EU server location.
