So some celebrities thought a good place to store photographs of themselves in various states of undress was somewhere online! I guess they could be forgiven for believing that online cloud storage like Apple’s iCloud should offer them security and that other people should not be able to tap into it. So what could they have done about it and it makes sense for us normal people to follow the same rules.
The first thing I would say is don’t store images like this of yourself online. That should be the first rule of not letting delicate information like this getting out there. Same applies to banking details, be careful what you store online.
Secondly make sure you have a really good password, I did a blog a while back about creating a good password, click here to read it.
The other thing is something known as two step authentication which Apple has and you can think of it as a double check to make sure you are who you say you are. Aside from your usual login you will have another code or password that is sent to one of your devices. You only need to do this once. Now some cloud storage systems do this automatically but at the time of writing Apple have it but you need to switch it on.
