As more people come online, dangers of being online, and the dangers of being attacked by someone you don’t even know from a country you’ve never even heard of become more apparent. It then becomes paramount for tech giants like Google — on which a lot of us have most of our lives stored — to push for a safer internet environment.
However, the security that they implement can only do so much if you don’t take this seriously too. So, here are 5 tips Google’s shared to help you stay just that little bit safer when you’re browsing online.
If you happen to have a Google account and be using an Android phone you might be having a problem on your hands, as its just been discovered that Google Photos will keep uploading your photos to the cloud even if you’ve deleted the app.
This is mostly because if you are using a Google account (which most people on the internet are likely to own) the entire system has a habit of zealously syncing everything you do with said account to you devices and any other service you use. Considering this is a huge privacy concern because it pretty much affects any Android device, there’s thankfully a way to stop Google Photos from continuing to save your data to the cloud.
