Adding a cloud service is an excellent way for Mylio Photos+ subscribers to back up and protect their photos offsite securely and privately. Users can designate a cloud service as a Vault to back up and protect their entire Mylio Photos library or add a cloud service for specific purposes such as an archive for a particular group of media (e.g., your favorite photos) using a Custom Sync Policy. Mylio Photos includes several helpful Sync Policy Presets or you can make your own
Once a cloud service has been added to your Mylio Account, Mylio Photos+ will update the drive using your selected Sync Policy whenever an internet connection is available. If you’re off-the-grid, Mylio Photos+ will update it the next time it has an internet connection.
If a device is lost, stolen, or broken, you can retrieve all synced media from the Cloud service and fully repopulate your Mylio Photos Library. Cloud services can also populate Mylio Photos+ on other devices that cannot be synced on your local or peer-to-peer connection.
Mylio Photos+ allows uploading encrypted or unencrypted files to cloud services.
Uploading Encrypted Photos
By default, Mylio Photos+ is set to upload full-quality encrypted image files. This means the Cloud service will not be able to read your files and provides the highest level of security. You must use your Mylio Account to unencrypt these images.
Uploading Unencrypted Photos
If you upload unencrypted image files, Mylio Photos+ will upload your full-quality image files without encryption. Unencrypted media and any personal data contained in that media will be viewable by the Cloud service.
