There is another method to backup your photos to Google servers without getting your gallery filled with photos from your past i.e. cached photos. Using the Google+ Photos App (which is an extension of the app Google+) on your Android phone you can easily remove unwanted cached photos from your phone. To begin with, download the Google+ app if you have not and you will find it in your app drawer.
To backup photos via Google+ 'Photos' app follow these steps:
- Open the Google+ Photos app from your app drawer.
- Click on the options menu (three vertical dots or dashes).
- Click on Settings.
- Click on Auto Backup.
- Turn the option to On.
You will also be able to customize different options like photo sizes to backup, backing up photos via Wi-Fi only, backing up while charging only and so on.
This way, your photos will be backed up to your Google+ photos. They are always set to private unless you decide to change the privacy settings. Quick Tip to ensure your Photos never go missing
