You have probably uploaded tons of photos and videos on Facebook, and you probably have forgotten most of them until they show up as Memories. But what if you want to download all those content and store them on a free cloud storage platform like Google Photos for safekeeping? Let us show you how.
The method can be done via the web browser or from the app. But for this guide, we’re going to use the former.
Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account and go to Settings.
Step 2: Click on the ‘Your Facebook Information’ tab on the left.
Step 3: Look for ‘Transfer a Copy of Your Photos or Videos’ then click on ‘View.’
Step 4: Enter your password to continue.
Step 5: Choose a destination where a copy of your photos or videos will be transferred to. In this case, click on Google Photos.
Step 6: Choose to transfer a copy of either your photos or videos you’ve uploaded to Facebook. After selecting, click on ‘Next.’
Step 7: Log in to your Google account and give Facebook access.
Step 8: Confirm transfer.
At this point, Facebook will proceed with uploading a copy of your photos or videos to your Google Photos. The photos are organized based on the name of the albums you have on Facebook. The transfer time might take a while depending on how much photos or videos are being transferred, so check back on this later.
You can also choose to stop the transfer. Take note that it will not pause the transfer so if ever you want to resume, you’ll have to start all over again.
And that’s it. We hope that you find this guide helpful. If you have tips or recommendations, let us know in the comments below.
