How to Automatically Back Up Your Photos

May 24, 2013 | By | Comments (3)


Whether your smartphone took an accidental dip in the pool or got stolen while you were strolling the boardwalk, saying goodbye to your phone is never easy. Perhaps the worst part of the whole ordeal? Losing all of your information and those precious photos. No matter what happens to your phone, ensure you keep your photos safe by programming the free Dropbox mobile app to automatically back up your pictures.

Using Wi-Fi or your data plan, the app automatically uploads pictures at original size and full quality, and saves them to a private folder in your Dropbox where they’re ready to view or share.

    I’m an avid DropBox user for my home staging business, but I had no idea you could schedule the mobile app to automatically backup photos on your phone. Great tip! Thanks!

    would much rather have them safely off my phone and organized than on the phone and have to scroll through tons of them just to find “the one” you were looking for – on my way to download now – thanks for the tip!

    Once they are on Dropbox, can I delete them on my phone (to have more memory)? Thanks from Germany :)
