Google Photos Won't Back up Social Media Folders by Default

Google Photos Won't Back up Social Media Folders by Default Google Photos will no longer back up images and videos saved from folders created by social media apps. Previously, the tech giant's photo backup service would automatically upload all images saved to iOS or Android devices, including those stored in folders linked to apps like Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp. The company has now confirmed the feature is turned off and needs to be toggled on for specific apps or to run manual backups.
