Sadly, your hidden collection of doge memes isn´t 100% safe with Google Photos.
Once upon a time, in a galaxy not too far away, everyone's favorite search engine attempted to compete with everyone's favorite social media website. Yes, Google actually tried to go head-to-head with Facebook by launching Google+ in 2011. We all know what happened: Facebook became too much of a superpower that it literally Thanos snapped Google+ to oblivion.
What seemed to be a doomed experiment for Google eventually became an advantage, as the demise of Google+ made way for the birth of Google Photos. Google knew they wouldn't be able to match Facebook's user base, so it changed its angle by creating a high-quality private library and photo storage service.
Google Photos took the world by storm in 2015, and now it has a total of 1 billion users. Not so bad, right?
Like any other web-based cloud platform, Google Photos has its own kryptonite.
From the onset, Google Photos looks and feels like a legitimately powerful tool for storing photos. Some tech-savvy critics even go as far as calling it the best photo storage platform out there today.
It´s a cross-service, web-based photo storage app that lets you store unlimited photos automatically, and for free. It even has AI functions that organizes your photos for you. All this really sounds gorgeous, but like any other platform, Google Photos has its own limitations.
For one, Google Photos still has not introduced any sort of lock code to keep your snaps safe. It also has shareable drive links that appear “private”, but any viewer can still scroll through your entire photo library once you decide to create and share a link. If you have any private photos that you want to keep to yourself only, Google Photos might not be the safest platform to use.
