My Cloud Camera offers free, unlimited storage of camera phone photos and videos. It solves the “Out of Storage Space” problem when taking cell phone photos or videos. My Cloud Camera automatically uploading all photos and videos to the cloud. It is available for iOs and Android.
I downloaded the app.
Then I got scared.
I read the terms and conditions:

With My Cloud Camera, the possibilities are endless.
My Cloud Camera scares me.
I deleted the app.
Wow, Mark! Just a reminder that, on line, nothing is “free”. Thank you for the reminder.
Horrifying! The other day, I heard a statement by Gary B. Smith, a Fox news contributor, that really resonated with me. “I’ve never been a fan of a service I don’t pay for.” This My Could Camera is a perfect example of what one gets for “free.”
Thank you Mark so much for writing this blog! It is an excellent reminder to read the fine print! Wow, that is totally scary!

Yikes! Just sign your life away. I’ll pass, thank you anyway. 😳
Great article. Amazing how you private information
can become public domain.
When you use FREE – YOU are the product! This same concept applies to all the free services out there… google photos, amazon prime photos, shutterfly, etc… bottom line, you get what you pay for and so do the “free” providers who offer you storage. Read the fine print of all the service offerings on the market today – they are equally as scary.
The only thing I would disagree with is that they are all equally scary. I have read the fine print for many of the services including some that you mention, and none of them hit the same level as My Cloud Camera.
