CNET has reported that Google is trying to keep the government out of the Google Drive-stored data, by encrypting the files, so that all the concerns related to the privacy of data rest easier in a post-PRISM context.
One of CNET sources claims, “This isn’t some flight of fancy. A small percentage of Drive files are already protected. Of course, even such digital protection is not guaranteed to keep your files private, but it would force those who would like a peek to obtain your login credentials first.”
This reactions has come in response to the constant allegations on Google against Skype Spying.
