I don't use any of them to store my health details, and by law (U.S.) none of the companies listed are licensed or setup to store health information anyway (PHI) as far as I know. So, why use them for that?

Google and Amazon have some credit card info for fast purchases, and I have not had any issues with that "yet", but I still don't "trust" them as far as I can "throw" them. Smile | :)

I use Keeper to store the important stuff, and I do trust them explicitly.

I don't store my important stuff on my computer, never have, never will - Keeper, along with info on paper stored in my secret lair 5,000 feet underground. Laugh | :laugh:

Personal photos are stored on Google servers, but since I don't take naked selphies( Dead | X| ), I really have nothing to worry about there, hack or not. So, they get pics of my dogs and backyard, big deal.
