    I have a 5th gen iTouch and an Iphone 5c, and I am very fond of the new "Favorites" folder in my photos app. However, I dont want these photos( or any other photos on either device for that matter)to be shared via cloud/wifi/etc. Id like to know if there is a surefire way to make sure none of my photos are EVER shared to ANY other devices for any reason. Im a bit cautious to Favorite pictures for this reason. I have Icloud photo sharing off, but im still a bit curious. How can I COMPLETELY avoid sharing any of my photos?

    As long as you have these toggled off, you should be fine.

    However you photos will be included in an iCloud backup unless you also turn that option off. If you do, I would encourage you to backup via iTunes (which keeps the backup locally on your computer) and optionally encrypt the iTunes backup for extra safety.
