    That covers most of the reasons I won't use cloud computing and storage. Unless you actually need to share files/data with other parties, there's no real advantage to it. If all you need is to be able to access your own data from other locations, that can be done without using a 3rd party server. AFAIC, there'd have to be a very real and legitimate need before I'd make someone elses server part of my attack surface. It might make sense for some businesses that would rather rely on someone elses infrastructure instead of using their own. For myself, I don't see it offering anything I need that I don't already have.

    Agreed! I don't get the "cloud" myself I only use it to share files (mostly pics) with people. Anything else I upload is encrypted and is only a small backup from my phone. Cloud = security nightmere/data leaks galore.

    So don't trust them with your data. Encrypt. It's easy.

    The entire point of encryption is that anyone can access the data but no one can get into it.
