Do I need BitBucket?

I just installed Git and SourceTree and find it works well with Xcode. I am considering BitBucket, but wonder if I really need it.

I work alone on the project and I worry that my source code may be looked at on a server "in the clouds". I probably am too paranoid, but I would have no worries if I just stuck to SourceTree locally and some online backup method which encrypted the code whenerve there was a change.

Am I right? What features would BitBucket provide?

If my project ever went beyond one developer, I see I'd need a server. But how about until then?

Thanks.

Don't bother with BitBucket .. there's no advantage other than having an Internet-based backup ... which you can achieve in lots of other ways.  BitBucket is more relevant if you are sharing with other developers .. simply have something like a local USB drive and use TimeMachine or an alternative backup software app to keep snapshots of your code.
