Online storage…Is it worth it?

Recently there has been a massive uproar about online storage security, with celebrities Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlet Johannson to name a couple, suffering nude photo leaks onto the web. It has spawned another debate about how much it costs to maintain your right to have that storage. What happens to the images if you just stop paying?

As some of you may already be aware, Apple’s iCloud storage system has recently changed its price plan, and allows just 5GB free storage, before you have to start paying a monthly fee.

Now for smartphone users it may be a worthy investment to pay for more cloud storage. However in the long run it would be cheaper to just buy a hard drive and store all your private photos, videos and files on.

At dabs.com we see the pros and cons to both sides of the argument. Online storage can be very convenient and easy to use without having to transfer files to physical hard drives.  But, do you fully trust the security measures the large cloud storage companies have in place to protect your data?

So we thought we would try to help and point you in the right direction to some products that may help you to solve your storage concerns.
