A project is a file with the file extension "qpp". QuickPlan follows the latest best practices and has the highest privacy standards because it is not server-based. QuickPlan is a very privacy friendly application. We (SwiftApp) do not have a server where user created project files are stored. User created projects are stored directly on the user's device or in the user's cloud storage, at the user's discretion. The user has full ownership of the files created by the QuickPlan app and is also responsible for the safety of their data.
Although the risk is not very high, users should be concerned about the risk of data loss or misuse, especially for critical projects. Risks can arise from
The device may be damaged or lost.
Projects are accidentally removed.
Project data is accidentally changed and automatically synced to other devices via iCloud Drive before you know it.
Our suggestions for critical project files stored on iOS devices:
Save the project to iCloud Drive, AND save a copy to the device.
After each vital change, manually back up the project file and copy the backed up files to the cloud storage. You can also create the backup file under a different name at another time - as if you had multiple versions of the backup.
Duplicate the project as a temporary backup on the device to another project group (for example, to create a specific project group for backup purposes).
Our suggestions for critical project data on macOS devices:
Multiple copies of project files in various directories.
Install the Dropbox app (or Google Drive) on the Mac and automatically sync between the directory on the Mac and a folder on Dropbox.
