Your iPhone will no longer automatically send its images to iCloud. Should you later wish to share an image, do so via email, message, or a social media account where you select specific images to share. Note that if you have photo sharing enabled on other Apple devices—your iMac and iPad, for example—those images are still in iCloud and could be retrieved by someone who has access to your account. But hang on, those image may still exist in another form.

Smart data image recognition technology allows devices to see what is in your photographs - storing them under groups including "brassiere". Snoopy mobile phones are beginning to stash away your photos - by category.

With Google Photos, snaps are stored on the cloud, in Google's own servers, the Plymouth Herald reports. But iPhone users are only finding out now that their devices have been doing the same for over a year - albeit on their own phones. Thousands of people have been tweeting about the hidden feature after some prominent US-based websites picked up on it today. The sheer scale of the number of categories appear to have shocked some users - especially those with a more personal edge.
Naughty pictures are meant for private eyes. You know the ones we're talking about. As proven time and time again in the news, someone is either getting their phone hacked or getting tricked into doing something that results in private photos being shown all over the internet. Here are five ways your intimate photos might end up on the internet if you're not careful. Remember those naughty photos you let your significant other take during a passionate encounter? You can go through the process of requesting they be removed from a website, but that is not always necessarily going to be successful. It's not a guarantee, though, that your photos haven't already been lifted and sent out to the Dark Web.
