Google (android) stores wifi passwords "in the cloud"


2 months ago I bought a Nexus 7, and laboriously entered my 63 character wifi password.
Today, I brought my shiny new nexus 4 into work.
Guess what? It connected automatically.

Convenient, sure, but a massive step too far IMHO, I trust no one with my wifi password, yet google have it in their database.

BTW - I know realise this is not new, I find blog posts about this dating back to 2011.

An instructive post. People to really know who they want to reach and why or else, they'll have no way to know what they're trying to achieve. People need to hear this and have it drilled in their brains..
Thanks for sharing this great article.
