Accounts are generally somewhat sensitive data. My preferred approach would be to somehow encrypt the file before sending it into the cloud. This could be as simple as a zip file with a password. Other approaches would be using GPG, truecrypt containers etc.

I'm a bit of a propeller-head, so I'd write a script to encrypt the accounts file, and then move the encrypted one to the directory which is being synched to the cloud. Then I'd schedule the script daily, or just run it on demand.
