iCloud will help you to keep all your Apple devices connected in an amazing way, so if you have photos on your iPhone you can have them on your tablet or on your Apple computer at the same time. You’ll always have the latest versions of your photos, your documents, your applications, notes and contacts… and you’ll have it all on all your Apple devices. You can also share your photos, your calendars, locations and whatever you want with your friends and family. You will be able to find your device if you lose it… and also iCloud does everything automatically, sounds good, right?
The dangers of iCloud with privacy on the Net
- It is true that it sounds good, but perhaps it sounds “too” good. Is it safe for you to have iCloud do all of this automatically? Is it safe for me to share your stuff with more people? How do you make sure that your privacy is not circulating around? I don’t know if you will remember how many celebrities’ intimate iCloud photos were leaked and posted for the whole world to see because of hackers. This makes it clear that there are hackers who may have access to the photos due to possible iCloud security flaws. And although Apple never raised its hand as guilty, it did strengthen its security system.
- So you must take care so that your iCloud photos do not circulate where they should not. That is why you will have to verify the two steps that Apple asks you for all Apple ID and iCloud users. You will have to enter your username and password and also a verification code that will be sent by text message to the device of your choice.
- iCloud, with its ability to interact with other applications, is really a useful tool that helps us keep all our documents, photos and everything you want well saved. but you will have to be responsible for your passwords and your privacy. Although of course, maybe if the famous hadn’t had those hot photos in their iCloud there wouldn’t have been such a problem, don’t you think? It’s not a bad thing to take hot pics and save them, but you’ll have to keep them from being seen by your mom instead of your boyfriend. Also, if you prefer, one option is that once you take them, save them on your computer in a folder with a password, so no one will be tempted to see photos they shouldn’t see.
