Google Photo Storage Free, But is it Secure?

1449868160_d560bbfeac_zGoogle Photos, a new service of Google, rolled out recently as a free option for users to store and share photos. It’s free to use, but it may not be the most secure option.

Once photos are uploaded to the app, they are stored across all of a user’s mobile devices. Unlike the original app within Google+, Google Photos allows users to share photos directly to Facebook and Twitter rather than exclusively to Google+.

A Google spokesperson said the app has the same privacy and security as any other Google service. “We don’t share your information with others unless you explicitly choose to share it with them,” she said.
