Saucy snaps at risk as embarrassed users shun safe backup
Easier Technology writes: One in 10 people don’t make safe and secure copies of photos taken on their digital cameras as they are too saucy and want to reduce the risk of other people seeing them, according to a new survey. A further one in 12 is failing to back up photossnapped on their mobile phone because they fear they might go viral.
The poll by One.com, the supplier of web hosting services, found that less than half (44 per cent) of those questioned back up pictures taken with their mobile phone. Most of those that don’t (92 per cent) claim it is too difficult or that they don’t have time to do so. This is despite the fact that 81 per cent say their biggest fear about losing their personal image bank is the loss of once in a lifetime memories.
