Is user data safe and secure in the Cloud?

Episode 984 (1:14:10)

Andy from Tacoma, WA

Andy has a Windows Phone that he really loves, but when it comes to cloud usage, is his information still owned by him? Leo says yes, always. Blogs anxious to get clicks are freaking people out with doom and gloom scenarios, but that doesn't mean it's accurate. The rights that cloud hosts assert are merely for transmitting his data where it needs to go. It's understandable, Leo says, that people are concerned when they read the legalese, but he'll always own his information.

There's always a risk that his data could be accidentally exposed or that third party cloud services could be required to hand over information without a warrant. Leo says that the US government is overreaching with it.
