    Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide insight to my question:

    Are photos that are backed up via Google Photos on a Pixel device secure? Meaning, is there someone on the Google/server side that can access them, see them, download them, etc.?

    Also, is Google mining information from our Photos, and if so, to what extent? Are they simply mining location data or time stamps or whatnot, or are they actually looking at the photos (either with employee eyes or AI) to gather data?

    I love Photos, but have always had this concern. Given today's G+ breach, I'd like to get a solid answer to my questions.

    Thanks again!

    Well Photos is cloud storage and does use AI though out.

    the answer: the security provided by Google. what it means, depends on them, from you, change passwords frequently and put a password on app photos
