Our smartphones are nowadays an essential tool and where we keep a lot of our information. This can exist in several formats, but especially important are the photographs and images that we keep there.
If we have all heard of backups and protecting our data. We have to include our images here again, which we don't want to lose and hope to keep for many years. Today we explain how you can add an image folder to your Google Photos backup.
Use Google Photos for backup
Google Photos is the place where we can store our photos and images. It is about keeping synchronized between the smartphone and the Internet, giving users access to any images on any platform.
Of course, you can use this service to create backup copies of all the images that are on the smartphone, whether they are photographs taken or any other that was received in a message, or simply downloaded from the Internet.
Any image is safeguarded
Start with Open Google Photos and open your menu. Then choose the Settings option and proceed with choosing the top option. This is called Backup and sync. It will be here that you can put a new folder for backup.
The next step, already associated with the user's account, is to access the zone where they can create backup copies of Android folders. Upon entering they will have the list of folders where Google Photos found images.
Choose the right folder to back up
They only then need to activate the folders they want to keep in a copy outside of Android, also remaining here. Google Photos handles this automatic process, without the need for intervention or even starting the process.
In this simple and quick way, they can start saving the images they receive on messaging services or other channels. Automatically, quietly and securely, users gain protection of their data here. They just need to add the folders to the backup.
