    Opera's "LINK" feature security opinions


    Moderator's Note:

    I have changed the main title to match instronics' wishes. (nihil)

    Hello everyone.

    Not sure where to post it, so move it if its in the wrong section. My question is more about policies and privacy concerning the Opera Link feature.

    I need a solution to share my browser's 'everything' on multiple machines. Opera LINK seems to do exactly that, but for the people here on AO that know me, you know that i am extremely paranoid most of the time. My main concern is PRIVACY.

    For example, i have many bookmarks, that i really DON'T want other people seeing. So my questions are:

    1 - How secure is my data if i choose to use opera LINK (data as in bookmarks, history, saved passwords)?

    2 - Does opera filter out, or 'spy' or look at my settings/bookmarks/history etc....?

    3 - (again for the people that know me) Should "I" trust it and use it without breaking my head of these thoughts?

    4 - From a security point of view..... does anyone else use and 'TRUST" this feature?

    5 - Any alternative solutions (without having to carry stuff with me on USB sticks, etc...)?

    Any advice would be appreciated.
