Last year the big G took us by surprise by announcing that Google Photos Free and Unlimited is over. This surprised many users of the cloud photo storage service , and there are even still people who have not found out about this change.

And speaking of things that people usually do not know about Google Photos, surely you do not know that this app may be consuming your mobile data without you knowing it. Google Photos automatically creates a backup of all the photos and videos you have on your phone, and if you don’t have it turned off, it can do so using mobile data. Do you want to avoid it? Well, we will tell you the adjustment you must make right away.

How to disable the use of mobile data in Google Photos

Como desactivar el uso de datos moviles en Google Fotos

With the end of the free era of Google Photos, those of Mountain View have taken the opportunity to make a series of important adjustments to this app. Many of these changes have greatly increased the use of mobile data . For example, until recently you could restrict the uploading of videos to the cloud using data allowing only photos to do so.

Now this is not possible, so if you have activated the use of data for backup, both images and videos will consume data when uploaded to the cloud. But don’t worry, there is a way to completely disable the use of data in Google Photos and for this you just have to follow these steps:

  • Open the Google Photos app.
  • Click on your Gmail profile picture in the upper right corner.
  • The next thing is to click on Photo Settings .
  • The next step is to enter Backup and Synchronization .
  • Now, at the bottom you will find the option Use of mobile data which you have to press.
  • Here you will find a section for the data usage limit, and you will need to activate the No data setting.

In this simple way you will ensure that Google Photos does not exhaust your mobile data again by uploading photos and videos to the cloud . If you want to learn more about this app, take a look at this article where we explain the quality of compression that Google Photos does.
