Google May Have Shared Your Videos With Strangers (betanews.com)

If you used Google Takeout to download an archive of your Google Photos content, there’s a chance that someone else may have ended up with your videos. From a report: The company has admitted that for a few days in November last year, “some videos in Google Photos were exported to unrelated users’ archives.” This means that not only could your videos have ended up on a stranger’s computer, but also that you may have received random videos belonging to someone else. Google is not making much of the “technical issue” which it says has now been resolved. But the company apologizes for the “inconvenience” that may have been caused for people downloading their Google Photos archive between November 21 and 25, 2019.
