No company out there wants to admit it, but there’s always a reasonable chance that some of them will get hacked sooner or later. If they don’t encrypt your data, those hacks reveal all kinds of information about you. So, to see who’s doing encryption well, the Electronic Frontier Foundation made a chart that looks at some of the big names.

The EFF looked at major companies like Apple, Amazon, Dropbox and Google. It then looked at what type of encryption options were offered to users and what is used to keep your data out of the hands of hackers. The results are somewhat surprising — Microsoft, for example, doesn’t do very much at all to keep your data safe. You can find the full infographic below, as well as the EFF’s full report.
