If anything, internal storage is more private that external storage. If someone steals your phone, it's quite easy for them to just pop your external sd card out and have access to all your files. If you bootloader is locked, stock recovery is installed, usb debugging is off, and you have a password in order to login, you're files are protected from someone who steaks your phone.
