Once you’ve tagged a person in your Mylio Photos Library, you can add a wide variety of information about that person, from contact information (for easy photo sharing) to relationships and even pertinent dates. This information can be added manually, imported from your computer or mobile device’s address book (macOS, iOS, Android), using a standard v-card or VCF file, or downloaded from FamilySearch.org.

Adding information about the People in your Mylio Photos Library helps preserve essential details about the most important people in your life. It also makes sharing photos with friends and family via email, text, or as Memories on FamilySearch.org quick and easy.
