Lightroom: Privacy of cloud-stored photos

I am thinking on moving from iCloud to Lightroom CC as my primary photo management and backup system. The app still has a long way to go to match the classic CC, mainly the iOS version but already in a very decent state for my adoption. Still my main concern is about my photo privacy.

I would like to know how my photos are stored and what security measures are in effect to protect my information. Are my photos encrypted on adobe servers with a private key owned only by me, stored in my system, so only me can actually access to them (like iMessages, WhatsApp, etc) or anyone with server access can see my files? If the latter, in case of any security breach, files are exposed to the hacker and that might be a no go to me and you are not respecting GDPR directives.

Is there any place I can read properly about your security infrastructure? Privacy is a right that I care a lot and Adobe has been hacked in the past, so my trust in Adobe engineering systems is not the best.

Thank you!

I could not find any specific answer there to my questions. If you could point me out where I can specifically find useful information that could answer my questions would be great.

Or does adobe team thinks that obfuscation is a method of security? (lol)

also, could you please re-add indentation again to my question so it stays easy to read?

I think you will find the answers to your questions through the security links on this page:

I hope the display of your original question is to your liking.

Cheers!

Hi,

Just curious Marco if you ever did get sufficient information to answer your question? These are big questions for me as well, and I'd prefer not to have to dig through countless websites to find the specific answers to the questions you've asked.

Thanks
