Backup to SFTP servers
SFTP, or secure FTP, is a program that uses SSH to transfer files. For SSH's part, this is a network protocol allowing to exchange data using a secure channel between two networked devices
Unlike standard FTP, SFTP encrypts not only data, but also commands, extremely preventing your passwords and sensitive information from being intercepted over the network.
SFTP protocol is necessary for online connection since the main risk is that your data might be caught during the transferring. Encryption and password lets you be sure that your files remain inaccessible, but you must protect your data en route.
Also note: SFTP functionally is similar to FTP, but since it uses a different protocol, you cannot use a standard FTP client for connection to an SFTP server. And vice versa: it's impossible to connect to an FTP server with a client that supports only SFTP. Therefore it might provoke some conflicts - but it's not related to you using Leo Backup
