Tapnet Review

Based in Alberta, Canada, Tapnet was founded in 1990 initially as a software development company.  They subsequently expanded their service repertoire and have been offering backup services since 2009. They currently have offices across North America and operate servers in several countries worldwide. With Tapnet, what you see is what you get. With one click social sharing, large storage space and the best security there is, TapNet is ideal for every student, novice, home or small business user.


Tapnet have managed to make online backup as easy as using an online USB, which also has valuable features. One standout feature offered is file monitoring. The application monitors your files as you work and backs them up as soon as they are saved. Therefore, there is no need to remember to back up each file separately as it does it for you. It is also important to note that the service is suitable for both windows and mac computers. Further and perhaps most importantly, Tapnet offers true unlimited storage space. Other important features include:

  • Automatic synchronization across devices
  • Mobile applications
  • Online video and music streaming
  • Accessible via computers and tablets
  • File sharing
  • Online file viewing and editing
  • File versioning for up to 30 versions (only if activated)
  • File restore if deleted

Another feature that makes this service stand out is the one click social sharing. Whilst backing up all of your recent photos or videos, it is as simple as ‘one click’ to upload them all to Facebook or Flickr.

Ease of Use

Once you sign up for an account on the Tapnet website and have verified your email address, you can select which of the four offered packages are appropriate.  There is no delay once you have bought your package, and you can immediately install the application and begin backing up your files.
Installation could not have been more straightforward, but for anyone unfamiliar with the basic installation process, Tapnet offers video support with step by step instructions. Once installed, there is a ‘manage backups’ folder that is specially designed to be as easy as using a USB. All you will need to do is select the file or folder you would like to back up and click apply.
