What is luckycloud?

luckycloud is a German cloud storage service that places special emphasis on security and data protection. With luckycloud you can store files, folders and documents online, synchronize them across all devices, share them with friends and colleagues or work on them together in a team. Thanks to the web version, the mobile app and the sync clients, you can access them from your preferred device, regardless of time and location.

This is our History

The story of luckycloud begins in 2007, when Luc Mader, the founder of luckycloud, created an online platform at the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin for friends and fellow students to share study materials. With the support of the university and many committed students, this developed into a cross-university archive with mutually shared content from different courses of study. On the basis of this archive, luckycloud was created after a year of intensive work - a "big hard drive" has become, we hope, a great platform for the exchange of information. luckycloud makes it possible to protect the exchange of ideas of the users from foreign eyes - including those of the developers of luckycloud.

Our Principles

We at luckycloud want to contribute to a free and secure internet that lives up to its original idea. In doing so, we are guided by 4 principles:

Transparency promotes trust and is the basis for a good working relationship. We believe that services should therefore always be transparent and comprehensible. That`s why we work exclusively with open source software at luckycloud. In this way, we also want to enable everyone to participate in the design.

Icon: In a PC a small hook can be seen. From the PC, an arrow goes up to the left to a memory. From it, the arrow goes back down to the right to the PC.


The Internet stands for freedom and unlimited networking opportunities. To keep this promise, clear regulations are needed for online services. Providers should not be able to access, view or block customer data. We at luckycloud do not have access to your data at any time.

The Internet should be a safe and open space for all. To ensure security, data protection must come first and must not be monetized. That is why the privacy of our luckycloud customers is the focus of all our considerations.

It is important to take responsibility for present and future generations. This means paying attention to sustainability. Our ISO-certified data centers in Germany are therefore operated with 100% green electricity. Also in terms of society, we want our cloud to contribute to sustainable coexistence, promote collaboration, and enable and simplify secure exchange.
