Data can be leaked on selling old phone
Many times we sell our old phone to someone. While selling the phone, we do not delete our data or reset the phone, so that all our data, videos and photos go to the person who bought the phone. In such a situation private videos and photos can be leaked.
Data can be leaked from the cloud
Often we save our documents, videos and photos on the cloud like Gmail and Dropbox. Most videos leak from here. Also, many times we keep easy passwords so that we can remember it easily, but such passwords can be easily hacked. Sometimes we share our password with someone else, which increases the risk of our data being leaked.
