What is your choice about cloud?

Which cloud service do you use for family photos? I know some of you use externals, but it isnt easy for me.

iCloud for new ones, by default because most of our photos now are taken on iOS devices. For the old ones, nothing, but I should get around to this. (The digital ones are on 2 PCs and a backup to a FreeNAS server, and 1 PC is backed up with Acronis to a rotating pair of USB drives, but I will lose them if the house and shed are taken out by the same airstrike. The older analogue ones aren't even scanned in :( let alone cloud-backed up )

Google for the backup copy, local FreeNAS for the other backup copy, and cold external HDDs for the third and fourth backup copies in a safe.
Victory requires no explanation. Defeat allows none.

when you upload copy to google, do you use encrypt or normal? I think google photos' tag doesnt enable when crypted.
