You can have the best encryption in the world, but if your password gets leaked, well, you just compromised your ecryption yourself.
Data in icloud is encrypted and cannot be accessed by anyone else other than the person(s) who know(s) the password/encryption key.
If you think android even comes close to protecting users' privacy, boy you are going to be disappointed when you learn the truth.
The only mass comercial way to protect your privacy, personal info, and stored data, is through Apple's devices and services. Otherwise you can go with linux, create your own encryption, create your own encrypted cloud and local storage. That takes care of the basics, but you would still need a phone: either a feature phone or an iPhone.

Apple can't access your data even if they want to.", and this is also not true- case in point: "fappening" in 2014. the truth of the matter is, android is quite secure and probably even more secure than ios; this is because apple gives you this false assurance that your information is secure with them but has been proven otherwise and is usually delayed owning up to data breaches, while android let's you know it does face external security threats and devices/discloses the measures they take to counter it as soon as possible.
What I think would be amazing is if Huawei takes their Android fork, innovates the hell out of it, and others started adopting it. Not likely, but one can dream.
Lynx, 10 Jun 2019Can you trust in US-made Operative Systems? Or other Operative System? I don't think so.No, they have similar 'must comply', 'must not reveal' laws - but at least there's /supposed/ oversight/checks & balances instead of totalitarian authority behind it.
LOL, 10 Jun 2019And use an Apple devices instead right?? A company and works with the US government to spy on you.Evidence..?
John, 10 Jun 2019The truth is that everybody spy on everybody, it doesn't matter it is US or China,
this is ca... moreApple doesn't spy on its users, as they don't sell ads. Collecting information requires resources, and if it doesn't generate any income, it's then making Apple lose money for nothing.
That's why Apple is about to introduce the 'Sign in with Apple' option, so you can use different relay email addresses for each service you log in to, and thus never let different businesses connect the dots which lead to you, as a consumer. That's why Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac OS don't have an option for always-on GPS tracking.
The only data which Apple actually collects is app crash logs which allows them to either get rid of apps which are not stable (unlike android's play store) or fix out bugs in the OS if that's the cause of the app crashes.
Everything else that you wish to back up and store on your icloud is 100% yours and it's encrypted with the key being entirely with you. Apple can't access your data even if they want to.
Let's face it, the only trustworthy and reliable OS right now on the market is iOS/MacOS. And all Apple devices of course.
You either are your own person or you are google's/facebook's/chinese government's person. The former you pay for with money, the latter you pay for with your own person. Your choice.
The truth is that everybody spy on everybody, it doesn't matter it is US or China,
this is called Big Data business, or you also can call it "the best democracy money can buy" ....

[deleted post]Once you are woke about technology, you will never touch an android/chinese/facebook/google product or service ever again.
And it's awesome that more and more people are waking up and stop allowing companies to control and manipulate them through piping specific information to specific users.
If technology were food, it would be like this:
Chinese products = fake eggs, plastic rice, genetically modified meat.
Google/Facebook products = better than chinese products, but full of E210, E220, E31 and the likes, stabilizers, preservatives, aroma intensifiers, etc.
Apple = the half vegetarian half meat, organic, 99% healthy, no chemicals, no preservatives, no added sugars.
If technology was food vendors:
Chinese products = street food in china, made with gutter oil and all kinds of highly carcinogenic ingredients. Cheap and satisfying.
Google/Facebook products = food chains like McDonald's and KFC.
Apple: high end restaurant which uses only the best organic ingredients, the best chefs, and offers awesome interior design, with incredible attention to detail.
If techology was car brands:
Chinese = they copy car models from Europe and the US. Will sell them with an appointed chinese official in the trunk, snooping in on your conversations inside the car.
Google/Facebook products = the Ford and Chevrolet of the car industry. Each model comes with one official from the company in the right seat who is there to act as a sort of co-driver giving you navigation instructions, but watching your every move, documenting the way you driver, where you drive, who you meet with, what you talk about, what your desires are, etc.
Apple = Mercedes. You get the car and the keys.
If technology was apples:
Chinese = plastic apple.
Google/Facebook = red apple with rotten insides.
Apple = yellow-golden colour apple, sweet and organic.
If technology was alcohol:
Chinese = cheap and makes you go blind.
Google/Facebook = makes you go blind if you use more than once.
Apple = properly distilled, aged naturally if needed.
If technology was non-alcoholic drinks:
Chinese = the big plastic bottles of cola knock-offs, on the bottom shelf of the supermarket.
Google/Facebook = Coca Cola and Pepsi.
Apple = fresh smoothies made out of organic fruit and greens.
If technology were clothing:
Chinese = plastic clothes.
Google/Facebook = cotton died in dangerous chemicals. Also natural fur clothes.
Apple = cotton and other fabrics died in organic, environmentally and user safe dies. All naturally renewabale and sustainable.
If technology was power generators:
Chinese = wood and coal power plants. Cheap, but heavily polluting.
Google/Facebook = nuclear and hydro power plants. One has the potential to damage the environment for hundreds of years and impact the lives of millions of people in case of a core meltdown, while the other impacts aquatic life and doesn't allow fish and other water creatures to travel upstream/downstream and reproduce.
Apple = 100% wind and solar energy.
If technology was walls:
Chinese = urine stained walls.
Google/Facebook products = graffitti and urine stained walls.
Apple = freshly painted wall with environmentally friendly anti-stain, anti-graffitti paint.
If technology was safe boxes:
Chinese = the government allows you to use their safe boxes and they have full access to them.
Google/Facebook = you own the safety boxes, but they come with a clerk that makes a note of everything you put in and take out of it, and then sends the list back to headquarters so they can "provide better safe boxes in the future".
Apple = you own the safe and that's it.
If technology was socks:
Google/Facebook: 80% cotton, 20% polyamid.
Apple: offers you shoes that don't require any socks. But also provides you with 100% cotton socks just in case.
If technology was TP:
Chinese = single sheet.
Google/Facebook = double sheet.
Apple = wet wipes.
If technology was digestive waste:
Chinese products = watery diarhea.
Google/Facebook products, services = fiery and stingy.
Apple = normal consistency log with good fibres content. Leaves no marks on TP. Just on wipe and you're fresh and clean.
hope ark can run both android and ios apps (and huawei shouldnt care about anyones complaining anymore)

Huawei & it's communist propaganda OS is good for Chinese & should only be sold in China...
don't get me wrong, i like huawei for their forward looking smartphones, but samsung- the world's number one smartphone manufacturer, have attempted to break away from android with its own os- tizen. prior to tizen, samsung launched its precursor- bada os, in 2009 to compete with android. both oses were not successful because of lack of support from developers. the same was true with blackberry10, windows phone, sailfish (jolla), webos, and meego. efforts for oses alernative to android have all been based on linux to facilitate utilization of apks for app installation packages, but still they failed. samsung had already built a sizeable app store of its own (galaxy store) that was accessible on tizen phones as well, but it too failed.
really, the success of an os is greatly dependent on apps, developers, and a sizeable apps repository; and the fact is the majority os smartphone apps developers (either ios and android) are based in the united states and the rest of the western world. there are big chinese developers like tencent, but majority of them simply ripoff legitimate apps (if you can remember the flurry of fake BBM apps that came out before the official BBM app was launched, all of those fake apps were from china). there is nothing that would stop chinese developers from copying legitimate apps, say facebook, but it would not work because APIs will not be given to them.
so, yeah, this early i can say that huawei's own os will be a success, however in china only.

You claim everything cannot be trusted but Apple can be trusted lol Do you even know that phone companies might collect your data and you say that it's only safe for Apple lmao
All people who don't understand technology or have just basic understanding of it, will support huawoi just because they offer cheap devices.
I really wish people would learn more and get more knowledge on the matter. Chinese devices and technologies are not to be trusted.
Google is not to be trusted and any of their services and tools either. Facebook, instagram whatsapp, etc. not to be trusted either.
The only solution is to use something that is not designed in china, does not use google services, does not offer APIs for user surveillance, and can function in total anonymity.
Can't wait for 'Log in with Apple' to be released!
