BoxConnect is also concerned about your security. In their FAQ, they’ve stated
“We only store tokens from YouTube or Dropbox in a session (in our database). After the files have been successfully uploaded to YouTube or the FTP server they are deleted on our site. Additionally the session values are discarded. The FTP part is as secure as a normal ftp session (the username and passwords are transferred in plain text). We are working on a solution to provide FTPS but not every server accepts this method.”
The service is free of cost and works very well.
