December Update: Proton Drive’s new photo backup feature for Android protects snapshots of your life | Proton



Now available for all Android users.
  • Lacks customisation options
  • More features coming soon
  • Photo Backup coming to iOS soon

This is just the beginning. Photo backup is already in beta on the Proton Drive iOS app and will be released publicly soon. Next on our roadmap is the development of support for albums and automatic categorization based on photo types, such as screenshots. We are also working on integrating on-device machine learning to ensure that you can enjoy all the smart features you’ve come to rely on while maintaining end-to-end encryption.

While i mainly use Google services "chromebook/android" and mostly its cloud, photos are something that no one wishes to lose or have compromised. This said, i do not store photos in the cloud but on external devices that can be plugged in when the need arises to grab them for what ever purposes.

Encryption for now is fine, but like everything else, the future will tell if it will be enough.
