How do I prevent pictures from going to other devices?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To prevent pictures from being shared across devices, you can disable the Photo Stream feature on your devices. Here’s how you can do it on iOS devices:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Scroll down and tap on “Photos & Camera.”

3. In the “Photos & Camera” settings, you’ll find options related to photo sharing. Make sure that the “Shared Photo Streams” option is set to On. This option allows you to share specific photo albums with others.

4. To disable the Photo Stream feature, slide the toggle next to “My Photo Stream” to the left. This will turn off the automatic syncing of photos across your devices.

By disabling the Photo Stream, you will no longer have a shared album of photos that syncs across your devices. However, it’s important to note that this will not delete any previously shared photos or albums. They will still be accessible on the devices they were shared with.

If you want to ensure that photos are not shared with other devices at all, you can also consider disabling iCloud Photo Library. This feature syncs your entire photo library across devices, including any edits or changes made to the photos. To disable iCloud Photo Library, go to the “Photos & Camera” settings and toggle off “iCloud Photo Library.”

Remember that disabling these features will only prevent new photos from being shared across devices. If you have already shared photos or albums, you will need to manually remove them from each device or album.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions or if there’s anything else I can assist you with.
