Privacy
[MUSIC] As photos of nude actresses hit the internet starts are vowing legal action, while others wonder how they can protect themselves. The best theory is that some hackers. They just sort of use brut force,right, like they just tried and tried and tried to hack individual user names and passwords. It's believed the composing images were stolen from iCloud accounts, Apple's storage service boasts more than 300 and 20 million users but they aren't required to enable the feature. Your device will prompt you to set up iCloud before you just say yes to everything. Think about whether or not you want to store your photos. To make those adjustments on your device go to settings and chose ICloud. Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Evernote and OneDrive are a few of the other services that have become vital for both business and personal use. The user should still be thoughtful about what they upload to the Cloud. The second your information leaves your device and goes up to another computer in the Cloud. There is a small possibility that it can be intercepted use best practices like, two factor authentication which basically means that you have to have a physical device with a special code on it in order to get past the user name and password settings. If you find yourself in the same boat as Jennifer Lawrence and Rhianna, act immediately. When you change your passwords you change them to different passwords for all major services. And the most important one is your bank. Plenty of hackers are hunting for more valuable information, access to your finances. In San Francisco I'm Sumi Das for CNET News
