    Hey Rene,

    Looking to use more iCloud storage for things like photos and documents but I am just curious about what Apple encrypts and does not encrypt. I know they will hand over backups to the government so I back up encrypted to my mac. Will my photos and docs be safe in the cloud?

    As far as I know, the only thing that is encrypted are your backups when you choose "encrypted backups" from within iTunes. Encrypted backups include your saved passwords, wi-fi settings, website history, and health data. Encrypted backups are not on by default, you have to choose the feature.

    Otherwise, there is nothing that is 100% safe if it is online. Your best option is to backup things you want to keep in a safe place either on your hard drive, micro sd, or burned to a cd and placed in a safe.
