PostSubject: stop icloud   using macOS noob friendly walkthrough EmptySun Mar 17, 2019 3:39 am

icloud is a degenerate service to say the least

it always sends notifications asking you for money to increase its storage

it is dependant on internet access to access your own files

it deletes your files from your machine when you disconnect as if holding you hostage.


bye garbage service bye bye :frustration:
