Google accidentally shared your cloud video backups with strangers

Yesterday, Google alerting users that a “technical issue” in Google Takeout, an app that lets you download backups of your data from other Google software, caused videos stored in Photos to be incorrectly exported to other people’s archives

The company is now asking users to delete any archives they might’ve downloaded between November 21 and 25, and perform another export.

“We fixed the underlying issue and have conducted an in-depth analysis to help prevent this from ever happening again,” the statement further read. “We are very sorry this happened.”
