When “the cloud” was first introduced, most were not really sure if it would be a good investment. While backing up files and photos online that could be accessed anywhere seemed useful, that also meant that it could be hacked. Of course, it’s much harder to hack a random cell phone from anywhere in the world, so saving stuff to Apple’s iCloud seemed problematic. It went further though, as Apple introduced a computer-based algorithm that scanned iCloud Images called CSAM. It would compare them to codes of known child sex abuse images. Apple also admitted to scanning iCloud emails for the same purpose. However, this is a massive invasion of privacy and could easily be misused. There are also infamous iCloud photo leaks of celebrities and many others, making iCloud security kind of a joke at this point.
