It’s Time To Back Up Your Phone’s Photos And Videos

Oct 15, 2020, 1:58 PM

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – How long has it been since you backed up your photos and videos?

What if you lose your device or it’s damaged or destroyed?

You’ll want to make sure those priceless photos and videos aren’t lost as well.

According to Wired.com, there are several options you can use – starting today.

Cloud backup is the way to go.

Google Photos

Google Photos comes with 15 gigabytes for free, which can fill up pretty fast. After that there’s a $1.99 per month option.


There are automatic settings for iCloud on your device for those who use Apple products. There’s automatically 5GB of free storage. From there, plans start at 99 cents per month for 50GB and can go up to $9.99 for 2 terabytes of data.


Flickr has a $6 per month feature that allows you to automatically upload the best of your photos so others can see them, too.


If you have a Dropbox account, you can use it to automatically upload photos from your phone, too. Even though it isn’t really a storage app, it still works.

There are also other free versions of cloud storage available, but keep in mind that they offer very limited storage space.
