[SOUND] If you're hoarding photos on your smartphone, you're doing it all wrong.
If you're like me, your smartphone is your primary camera.
No matter what happen, it's always there to capture the moment.
It's so convenient, in fact, that you might have 100 of photos on your phone, right?
So when was the last time you backed them up?
Or ordered prints?
In the best case scenario, those photos are hogging memory.
But, if your phone is lost or stolen, well, you know how that story ends.
To avoid the hassle, back up your phone often.
Just plug it into your computer to off-load the photos, videos, and everything else you have there.
You can also use an app like Flickr or Google Photos, which can automatically back up your photos to an online storage site or if you have an iPhone, you can enable iCloud Photo Library, which will also automatically back up your photos.
But unless you're paying for extra storage, you'll probably run out pretty quickly.
By setting up these services, not only will you make space on your device, but you'll also rest assured knowing that your memories secure.
And now you're doing it right.
