Apple the mess: the personal data of your iPhone is not as safe as you think



As a technology user of the Cupertino you probably have hired the storage services of iCloud, the Apple cloud. And the free 5 GB provided by Californians are nothing to little you want to make backup copies or save your snapshots in the Fototeca.

And today we have learned that Apple uses the Google Cloud platform to store the encrypted data of users. And not only that, but it uses three third-party services for it , being the Google platform one of them. The storage of iCloud account data is under encryption, which indicates that no user identification information is included.

Apple has made it public in the latest version of its iOS Security Guide , which was updated last month. The encrypted fragments of the files are stored, without any information that identifies the user , using third-party storage services such as Amazon S3 and Google Cloud .

And it is that Apple seems to be no longer a customer, in this aspect of storage, Microsoft, which owns the Azure platform , considered a leader in this regard along with Google Cloud.

iCloud stores the data that a user saves, such as contacts, calendars, photos or documents, and since each file is divided into pieces and encrypted with AES-128 and SHA-256 keys , storage by Apple in the Google Cloud platform should not be a security concern for users.

The services of storage in the cloud are very fashionable, due to the affordability of some prices that are offered, for example, the company like Mega offers 50 GB free in the cloud . Apple, take note and increase the free space.
