Backing up my pictures is hard. There has got to be an easier way.

The last post showed you a way of manually backing up your photos. We live in the age of automation and this post won't let you down. Follow these steps to have Google+ automatically backup your images and videos. Just set it and forget it.


Open Google+ on your iPad.
If this is your first time opening the app you will see the above screen. Click Turn on Auto Backup.
Already using the app? Skip to the third image.



If you see this screen click OK.



1. Click the hamburger icon (three lines) in the upper left corner of the Google+ app.
2. Click the small gear icon in the screen that pops out.



Click Camera and Photos.



Click Auto Backup.



Make sure you have Auto Backup selected. This will automatically backup all photos, videos and screenshots you take with your iPad.

Click Back up all photos and videos to start the backup process. This will backup all the media listed above right away.
