    OMG icon_eek.gif

    I found where peoples phone pictures go into the cloud, the place, cloud, everyone is talking about, the cloud where phone hackers probably got celebrity photos. I just cleaned up my android phone photos, all adult photos have been removed from my phone and this cloud thing, at least I hope so, I am looking at hundreds of peoples photos that I have no idea who they are!!! icon_redface.gif

    cloud-front... profile, private icon_eek.gif

    The amount of photos marked 'private' are way less than 'profile' ones so they are easier to find, and when you do find 'yours', delete it from the cloud, this is shocking!

    Even though theres been that huge iCloud scandal of leaking and its security isn't the best, you are a tad bit more in control of what gets on the cloud on an iPhone. Google totally ignores their users privacy without their consent.

    My friend found the link his accounts to where google stores media on the cloud. We saw videos uploaded to the public without him knowing, one particular one of him and his friends doing a naked mile to his apartment blocks swimming pool icon_redface.gif Glad i didn't participate.

    Please review all phone settings and cloud settings before continuing use of any smartphone.

    You gave zero information about where we find this cloud or how to go about doing any of this.

    So does this mean there is no way to stop these cloud photos from appearing in my android phone settings? All I see that would even remotely control any content is the Web History in Google account, I will have to do further research into my android jelly bean

    From what I have found, its not an individual phone hack, its the cloud, where EVERYONES photos are stored!!! There must be billions of photos or videos on different cloud networks icon_eek.gif

    if you put something on iCloud or dropBox at least encrypt the information; provide a secondary hoop some hacker must jump.

    We use Apple's iCloud, but only to share our contacts, notes, calendar and to-do list. Not for photos, email, or other documents,

    I know it's not terribly secure, and Apple will honor warrants from law enforcement and the NSA to release data they store. But a risk I take, for the convience of all 6 of our devices continuously syncing automatically, with the data we need to share between us.

    Photostream is pretty safe if you look at how it works... Nothing is stored online... Its sent via a web server to your other Devices where it is to stay. There is now online storage facility for that.

    Making use of ANY cloud storage is potentially riskay

    Those celebs photos didn't leak because Apple has flawed security measures. Those photos ended up in the wrong hands because a specifically targeted attack on celebrity accounts/user-names was made by hackers and those that got leaked are the celebrities that weren't smart enough to enable two step verification. Good thing is it did make Apple further increase security to put users at ease and more security is always great.

    Granted no company can truly promise you security for your personal data/media.
