    Need advice on the best free cloud/online storage with a lot of space for a android phone.

    1. Secure with password or passcode.
    2. storage for everything on phone.
    3. Be able to automatically scan for files or folders with this software.
    4. Completely FREE.
    5. Be able to move any data into it.

    When you say secure with password, they all are but once you log into them they stay logged in and they have to if you want automatic access. Say if you want to upload your pictures as you take them, the program would need to be logged in for that to happen. If you want to secure something you need to secure the device with a password.

    Google already provides you with a backup when you sign in with your Google Account on your phone, they also offer photo uploading to the Google Drive and music storage

    You don't need to store everything on your phone in the cloud, only some of your data. Your apps will re-download or be available to download as soon as you log into your Google account linked to the phone.

    One Drive, DropBox, Box.Net are a few other examples. All can be use on both your phone and PC. All can be used to store whatever data you like.

    Most have free versions that give you a set limit, like 5 or 10GB's but you can pay for more storage.

    No service has unlimited free storage. You need to think in terms of app data and not folders with Android. If you want security, use a 2 factor authentication service.
