Rabindra Dhungel, 27 september 2020. You definitely want to share photos from your smartphone with friends and family. Many people use Facebook and Instagram to share their photos. But this year they have been caught in data scandals many times. People are worried about their privacy after the Cambridge Analytica that came out earlier this year and the hack that took place in October 2018 affected 30 million people. Those who consider their photos to be sensitive personal data are even more afraid to upload photos to such sites.
There are other means of photo sharing. In this article, we are writing about the security of sharing photos from iCloud. If you have an iPhone, you can be largely free from security risks. Instead of Facebook or Instagram, you can share photos with your friends and family from Apple’s iCloud. Built in the cloud that only works for Apple devices, it also works for devices other than Apple on the web.
The biggest advantage of using iCloud is that it is secure and confidential. Users can choose who to show their photos to, and Apple does not use users’ photos, scan for more information, or target ads. See Apple’s web page dedicated to security and privacy.
Apple does not sell your photos and personal details to any third party, and it also encrypts any login and transaction data. Even if the person viewing your photo post does not have an Apple device, they can view and comment on the photo by visiting iCloud.com through Apple ID.
You can also click on a comment, add or post. This way you can share photos on iCloud. The best thing about iCloud is that you can select the people you want to show your photos on, and others can contribute photos to your album. Go to your share album for this. There you will see a toggle button with two options. In which people are written in one and photo in the other.
When People click, a list of people you want to invite will appear. For this you need their email address and phone number. You can also give others the right to post photos and videos to your album.
