It allows you to sync files 7 between computers over LAN or the Internet. It is a very simple program that 8 just gets the job done. 9 10 I use it to synchronize files between two computers and my phone. When 11 synchronizing two computers, I find it to be a much faster—and smoother—approach 12 than doing it with a USB, while mantaining my privacy and avoiding the exposure 13 of private document to companies on the Internet. I also use it to back up a 14 couple of folders from my phone, including my pictures. Every once in a while I 15 will activate syncthing on my phone, it will sync everything with my computer 16 and then I just exit it. It is fast and simple. 17 18 If you want to synchronize/back up your computer or phone privately, check it 19 out! 20 21 22 [s]: <https://syncthing.net/> "Syncthing"
