An image speaks a thousand words, one thousand images speak Google Photos and Google Photos is here to stay even if one day you decide you don’t need it anymore. Overall, the feature is amazing, as it has a giant storage space, it creates slide shows, collages, movies and many more, to add it all in your personal library. Google photos is one of the most efficient, entertaining and widely-used photo platforms, as it offers a wide range of options and possibilities for all the photo lovers out there.
Every up has a downside too and Google photos is no exception to the rule. Uninstalling Google Photos won’t stop your phone from uploading pictures to your account. So, once you go Google Photos, you can never go back. Nashville Business Journal highlighted the issue which can become controversial, to say the least. Our personal photos are a matter of privacy and sharing, storing and using them publicly should be a question of choice.
There’s a trick here and if you want to get out of the Google Photos world for good, you must tell Google to switch off the Google Photos backup syncing feature. Google must know it all, you cannot simply escape the claws of the tech giant by simply deleting the app from your Android service. Anyways, getting rid of Google Photos is not simple at all. Android users who want to uninstall the app and have their pictures stored somewhere else need to know how to access the Google settings page on their phone in order to toggle the backup function off.
Daddy Google has its way when it comes to user retention. He wants us all in and if we want to go back or further to better or more private places, the tech giant needs to know.
The photo feature doesn’t keep it all localized within its app, farming out the task of managing uploads to the Google settings app, which is known to operate with location data, ad settings, search functions and so on. So, if you decide to simply delete the Photos app, you don’t kill its setting as well. A backup settings function rolls out on the background and keeps on storing your personal file of photo images. To completely disable the application, you must go to Google Settings and tap on “Google Photos Backup”.
