Cloud storage

What is cloud storage?

Cloud storage is like having a virtual locker where you can store your digital files and access them from anywhere with an internet connection. Instead of keeping your files on your computer or other physical devices, you store them on servers owned and maintained by cloud storage providers, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or iCloud. This means you don't have to worry about losing your files if your computer crashes or gets stolen and you can easily share your files with others. Cloud storage is convenient and flexible, but you need to be mindful of the security and privacy risks associated with storing your data online. It's important to choose a reputable cloud storage provider and use strong passwords and other security measures to protect your files.
