Picasa is a web album which is hosted by the web giant Google. This web album can be used not only for storing your cherished photos on the web album but also it helps you in sharing your memorable photos with your friends and family members. As it is a well known fact that there is no guarantee of security for pics that are uploaded on the internet, as they may be easily misused by the users. So, for our safety purpose, it is better keep changing your password from time to time to avoid any such misuse of your uploaded photos or content. Moreover, share only those photos which are safe for sharing and do not use any personal photos on the net which have chances of being misused. However, the best way of sharing the photos is either through Google+ or Facebook and then have private setting as per your circle in these social network sites so that only the people you would like to share the photos can be viewed by them and not all.
