How to back up your photos with Google+

Google Photos

The device that people use to take a majority of photos is their phone. Even when smartphone cameras weren’t that great it was still better than lugging around a camera. The result of this convenience is people carrying around all of their personal photos everywhere they go. That makes losing them all that much easier. Luckily there are plenty of ways to back-up your photos for safe keeping. A popular method for Android devices is through the Google+ app. We’ll show you how.

When you download the Google+ app from the Google Play Store it also gives you a companion “Photos” app. The icon should look like this:

If you’re not already signed in with your Google account it will ask you to do that now. When you are signing in for the first time it will ask if you want to automatically back-up your photos. You can enable it right there. If you haven’t already done that, or you want to adjust the settings, follow the steps below.

  1. Tap the Menu button in the top right corner and select Settings.
  2. On the next screen select Auto Backup at the top of the screen.
  3. Now flip the switch in the top right from Off to On.
  4. That’s it!
