Okay but seriously this whole “don’t put nudes somewhere people can find them” thing is bullshit because they ARE putting them somewhere where nobody can find them which is their own personal phones and computers and it is nobody’s fault but the piece of shit who hacked into them and invaded their privacy so anyone who says it is their own fault can go get run over by a car
almost - in fact this is more of a matter of security and privacy than anything else as, as reported elsewhere, the pictures were found on the cloud, which is on the internet. now I’m not at all saying that it’s their fault for putting them on the cloud. rather, when you take a picture with an iPhone or such, it is automatically uploaded to your iCloud account. this behaviour is enabled automatically, and a lot of people are unaware it even happens. the idea I suppose is “get all your photos back if you lose ur iphone” but the implications are far more worrying as this has shown - one person (can’t remember who it was) said the pictures were deleted ages ago, but clearly they were still present on her iCloud account. now I don’t know about you but I find this REALLY REALLY scary. with this in mind, if you delete something from a cloud-enabled device how do you really know it’s actually been deleted? what other stuff of yours has been put on the internet without you knowing for all with the know-how and malice to see? imo this is more of an indicator that awareness needs to be raised about the security and integrity of online services, especially ones owned by big corporations with questionable motives such as Apple and Google.
I could write more on the matter but I suck balls at writing and my pasta is ready
