I just found out that if I type my email into Google I can match that mail with my picasaweb account, is there a way to stop this from happening? Nothing else of mine is visible this way, so I don't see why picasa should be an exception.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Do you have Google+ account? – Binarylife Aug 1 '11 at 10:55

What you are speaking about is impossible - there is no way by typing your email address you got match to your Picasa Album. Are you sure that you were not loged in to Google or any of the Google Services from your own account or any other account to which you have shared the album? Are you sure that you have the privacy settings of the album set to Only me or Private (or whatever it is called).
