Take your tinfoil hat off, go to the Google+ app, turn automatic upload offin the Google+ settings; then go to https://picasaweb.google.com
, find therelevant folder, delete the files, logout, and after that, learn that "Google" is not spelled "Goggle." Then put your tinfoil hat back on.
1. When you sign up for a Google account, you don't have to give Google accurate information, so what does it matter?
2. The pictures that are uploaded are not shared with the world unless you share them, so whatever incriminating photos you took will not be availablewithout a search warrant, assuming Google keeps them past your deletion.
3. Get used to living with limited privacy, anyway. There's little alternative not to.
