Yeah, right. Lets hear from the security experts and not Google.Â
What I would believe is: "All the private data we have hoarded from you over the years is kept as secure as an iPhone. You know, all the data, SMS messages, search history, web browsing behavior, emails, notes etc. that we have gathered from you, its is kept very secure. I mean we can’t afford to lose it or the NSA and FBI can’t have it when the want it on a whim."
That sounds more like the Google that I know.
