How Do I Enable or Disable Camera Upload on Android?

Dropbox is cloud storage & synchronization service which allows you to backup photos, videos & important files to access them from anywhere on any device. By using "Camera Upload" feature, you can automatically upload photos and videos from your Android phone. During the initial setup, Dropbox will prompt you to setup your automatic photo & video backups. Choose any of the two options available i.e. upload photos on your data connection and Wi-Fi, or only Wi-Fi. All of your uploaded photos & videos are stored in a ‘Camera Uploads’ folder in your Dropbox account. You can access your account from dropbox app or from any other browser on any device. If you skip to turn ON Camera Upload feature during the initial setup, then you can turn it ON from the Dropbox Settings.
