Default Are "Google Drive" and similair services safe?

My phone storage is full and I'm considering using Google Drive (have done in the past) to store images and free up phone space.

However, I haven't done this for a long time and I'm more aware now of the risks of these cloud sites. Not only are they not fully secure (remember The Fappening?) but more concerning for me is the possibility of my personal photos being used by Google. There's nothing lude in the images, mostly images of friends, dog, etc but I still wouldn't want them passed around amongst strangers.

Are there any friendly equivalents to Google Drive that are more trustworthy? I generally just don't trust Google with anything these days...

Similar dilemma for me though I'm damned if I'm voluntarily giving Google any more of my personal stuff....

What's wrong with local backups?

You can't really trust Google with anything and if you really want to have your photos somewhere in the cloud i.e. someone elses computer, then you should probably encrypt them before uploading?

Just not very convenient. I like the idea of having the photos on me if I need them. So if someone asks me about photos of x, I simply just need my phone rather than having to say "they're on my computer at home"

The way I see it:

1. buy large sd card for storage, newer phones support larger than 64GB
2. upload to 'cloud' if you're okay with the fact that someone's going to probably use those files for something. I believe Google used/uses photos for deep learning etc.

Also, their ToS allow them to analyse the files stored in their Drive service, to keep copies of your data and to use it in any way they see fit.

It's up to you if you find those terms acceptable for convenience they provide.

There must be other Cloud sites that don't have this ToS agreement

There is a good point in using cloud storage. In case if your house goes up in flame, your file is still safe somewhere on the internet. But you'd be best not to upload indecent pictures or else you will probably get arrested. Also, will you still hold copyrights or your file if you give it to big G? Re: deep analysis...probably right. Your selfie could be entered into Da Database e.g. facial recognition programme without you knowing. I know they'll deny they do this but....

Amen to most of this. Looking for any cloud sites with reasonable terms of service.

i bought a pogoplug device years ago. connect it up to your router, plug in a usb hdd, your own personal cloud thats local to your network. yet you can access it from anywhere. i use it to back up my 10,000 song music collection on itunes.
