Why should you switch to iCloud after the new Gmail policies?
Probably many of you will remember that Google slogan in which it said «don´t be an evil«. What he used to defend that his services were better than those of the competition. But it seems that now that they have already found the secret of success in social networks, after several failed attempts before Google Plus, being a bit of a demon is not so bad. At least in view of the new policies that have been applied in Gmail.
In case you still haven’t heard about it, in this case Google has just announced modifications to its clauses and its hand has not shaken with the abuse of Google Plus profiles. Now any user with a Gmail account, even though their email is not public, may be contacted by strangers who contact them through Google Plus (profiles cannot be private). That is, your data is more exposed than never. For this reason, perhaps now the iPhoneros lovers of the Gmail system, they should think about switching to the native system iCloud.
Google’s initiative responds to its attempt to make Google Plus the identification card. It has already happened before, in the case of the use of YouTube. And now, many who had created their G + profiles just like that, as a form of access, but had forgotten about them, are beginning to worry. The option, which is already active by default in all accounts, is a strainer of spamers, strangers, and to know how many more things.
Therefore, if already iCloud had certain advantages over Gmail, some of which came with the new update, now their superiority in terms of privacy seems evident. And if you opt for iCloud instead of the current Gmail, you can boast of having a mail service that comes completely free on any iOS or Mac OS X device that you buy.
In addition, only those who know your email address will be able to contact you through him. And as if that were not enough, Apple, at least for the moment, does not use your stored data to target its advertising. In privacy, at least now, iCloud win this game.
And for those who are not yet ready to leave Gmail and change it to iCloud, it should be noted that the option that Google activates by default can be deactivated in Settings, but that without notice they have placed it on all users, attacking its privacy says a lot about demon that Google has inside Don’t you think?
