Quick Tip to ensure your Photos never go missing
- Confidentiality is at risk, we are not saying it to scare you, but this is a fact. The Apple people have access to all the data that's backed up on the iCloud. By saying this, we don't intend to say that they are spying on you but yes, technically they can access your data.
- Another very concerning issue related to iCloud is the security. Apple's iCloud is a target for hackers all over the globe. It gives a very uncomfortable feeling that there are people who would delight jumping in the iCloud backup system.
