hubiC is a service developed by OVH which enables you to save documents such as photos and videos online, in a totally private secure space, to share them with who you choose, and to make them available on various devices: computers, tablets, smartphones.
Synchronisation is the process of locating identical files on several computers and updating them to reflect any modifications made from one or more of your devices.
Sharing a photo or any oher document means allowing the people of your choice to access it via a URL address (or link). Those that receive the share link can then view your file (in the case of photos), and download it using a simple web browser. You can create a share link for one of your documents from any of the hubiC applications, and then you can send it by email or SMS, or share it via the social networks. There's no limit to how many times you can share your files. You can cancel a share at any time, so that the share link no longer gives access to your document. If you don't cancel it, the share link will have a lifespan of 5, 10 or 30 days, depending on the option you chose at the time of creating it.
