​Is It Safe to Store Personal Data in the Cloud?

The good news is they're actually completely secure, and these so-called leaks are usually the result of users being tricked into handing over their details by hackers who send emails, text messages or even call, claiming to be from the storage provider.

2. Be wary of phishing emails that claim to be from the company you have the account with (such as iCloud and Google) and encourage you to click a link and enter your username and password, often by claiming your account has been deactivated.
