This package was approved as a trusted package on 9/3/2019.

Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the Internet

If you want to add syncthing as a service that runs at system startup, execute the following command from PowerShell with administrator permissions.
