The "Automatic backup" function can be found in your settings. Activating this function means your photos and videos will be backed up in myCloud on an ongoing basis. This avoids having to upload anything manually and protects you against loss of data that may, for example, be caused by a fault in your mobile phone.
This function provides you with the following settings options:
- You can choose whether photos and/or videos are uploaded.
- You can choose whether backup should take place over WiFi or mobile data.
- You can activate "Upload in background" (iOS only).
It usually takes a few minutes for photos and videos that have just been taken to appear in myCloud. If you don't activate the function "Upload in background" with iOS, photos and videos will only be uploaded while the myCloud app is open. There's more information on this in the next question.
