Question: What do all of these have in common?
- Rainy days
- Deep fryers
- Cups of water
- Cups of green beer
- Black holes
Answer: Thaaat’s riiight. Each one of these things desperately want to destroy that shiny smart phone of yours, as well as the cherished memories stored within.
As much as we’d like to have it, there is no galactic forecast that can warn us of incoming black holes, so stop dreaming. Practicing caution, on the other hand, is a freely available resource. Let’s set up that Photobucket app to automatically back up your photos and videos, and do it before it’s crushed into an infinitesimally small singularity, or fried into a delicious snack.
BACK DAT APP UP
If you’re a first time Photobucket app user, you’ll be prompted right away to turn auto backup on. Let’s say you’ve already chosen to disable auto backup, but the prospect of terrifying black holes has changed your mind. No worries, it’s easy to turn it back on!
Fire up the app, then hit the menu icon in the top corner. For iOS users, tap Backup, then tap Enable. Only the wording is different on Android – tap the menu icon, then tap Backup, then tap Start Auto Backup.
Well done, be not afraid of losing your images! Now go out into that big world of infinite possibilities, grab it by the shirt collar, and live.
