The cloud

The cloud

It’s a logo that smartphone users know well: the “cloud”. This symbol represents the latest internet revolution, supposed to make life easier, with the at-distance storage of data. Photos and music are no longer stored in the memory of your smartphone, tablet, laptop or tower, but on a “cloud” accessible through the web.

Behind this cloud concept are huge electronic warehouses, data-treatment centers, which are implanted in the four corners of the earth. When you read your e-mails, make your tax declaration or post a photo on Facebook, personal data is stocked on a cloud, often without us even being informed… But is this data well-protected? Who really has access to web-users’ cloud?

A journey into the heart of this new practice which still remains relatively unknown to users of the internet.
