Say hello to Bix
Bix makes your life easier
Imagine having unlimited mobile access to your files or listening to your entire music collection on your smartphone. Imagine if you could share photos with one click on a link. Or imagine that Bix secured your computer’s important files with automatic online backup.
Bix can make your life both easier, more enjoyable and safer.
Bix is where your data is stored online. Data that is available in Bix is placed in Bix’ secured data centers. From there, it is all accessible via the Internet.
In Bix, you can choose from two different levels of accessibility for your data:
- Available in the cloud and on device
- Available only in the cloud
In this context, the device is your computer, your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone.
The green icon indicates that the resource is synchronized, and that data is available in the cloud and on your device. The blue icon indicates that the resource is not synchronized and that data is only available in the cloud.
Data being available in the cloud and on your device means that the data exists in identical copies in both the cloud and on your device. The device could be your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone.
Data being available only in the cloud means that there is only access to that data when you are connected to the Internet. The data is not synchronized with your device and therefore unavailable on your device.
The primary benefit of making data available from both the cloud and the client is that you always have access to the latest updated version from all your devices, whether you are online or not. Additionally, you can read, edit and share data wherever you are.
If you do not need unlimited access to a resource, however, you can save space and data traffic by setting a resource to be only available in the cloud.
You can always make a folder on Bix accessible from your computer and select which folders to sync on the computer. It is also possible to decide which folders should no longer be available on the computer.
Synchronization and backup
Bix creates identical sets of data and keeps them continuously synchronized with each other, across devices and operating systems. In practice, the contents of your smartphone mirror the contents of your computer and of Bix and vice versa.
When you add a file for synchronization on your computer, the file will also automatically be added to your smartphone, your tablet PC or any other device that is configured to synchronize in Bix. The same will happen every time you edit or delete the file.
Bix features version control. Version control detects any changes to your files and makes sure that you always have the most recent version. Version control ensures that all your changes are saved and it continuously checks that your latest changes are saved and synchronized to your device.
Bix keeps track of the latest version of your files, regardless of where you created or saved a specific file. Your data is also protected by automatic real-time backup.
From Bix File Viewer, add folders to sync so you can access them from all your devices. For example, add the Windows folder "Documents" in File Viewer.
All your documents will be immediately accessible from your mobile phone, your iPad or any device with Bix installed.
Easy to use
Bix comes with advanced features but is easy to use for everyone.
It doesn’t take more than a few minutes to get started with Bix. After a few clicks you have installed Bix on your computer and are ready to go.

To get access from your mobile phone, download the app for iPhone, iPad and Android in App Store and Google Play. Once you have installed Bix and set up the resources you want synchronized, Bix will run in the background, unnoticed and without interrupting your work. The system requires no maintenance or other actions on your part.
Mobile access to your data
When you open the Bix app on your smartphone and log in, you will see a list of drives available to your user.
Each drive can contain multiple folders and files. Access your favorites, music and pictures with one touch from the top bar.
To access data that is in Bix only, you need Internet connectivity. Data that is both in the cloud and on your device can be accessed from your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone when you are offline.
Security in Bix
Any transfer of data between Bix and clients takes place via SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is a protocol for transferring private files, which uses keys to encrypt data. SSL protects your data, so that no unauthorized person can intercept data during transmission.
All data is encrypted before it is placed on Bix’s systems. All data that you place at Bix will be stored in replicated data centers to achieve the highest possible level of security. Data replication means that the data is placed in two separate data centers.
Our extensive security measures contribute to providing the safest and most stable web hosting and storage solution of the market.
