Welcome to Mylio – the new home for all of your photos, videos and documents. This guide will teach you the basics of Mylio and walk you through the first five steps in getting your files imported, protected and synced across all of your devices.

On a computer, visit mylio.com/get-app to create an account and download Mylio. Be sure to check your computer’s Downloads folder to launch the Mylio installer. On your mobile device(s), download Mylio from the iOS App Store or Android Play Store. Using your Mylio newly created account email and password, sign in to Mylio to sync your pictures, videos, and documents across all the devices you want.

Mylio uses a Wi-Fi network to move your photos between your devices. In order for your photos to sync across all of your devices, they must meet three criteria:

  • All devices signed in to the same Mylio account.
  • All devices on the same Wi-Fi network.
  • All devices have Mylio running at the same time.

Mylio syncs with your calendar app to automatically organize your images across your devices. When first setting up Mylio you’ll be asked if you would like to import your calendar, doing so will create your Life Calendar™ – a unique view that couples your photos with your calendar events to show you the visual story of your life.

You can add a variety of file types to your Mylio Library including photos, videos, and documents. These files can originate from many different sources, bringing all of your files together in one library that syncs across all your devices.

Mylio’s setup wizard will help you with your first import. Additional imports can be made by selecting the import button at the top right of Mylio. Mylio’s import options include:

  • This Computer: Mylio will add a folder on your computer to your Mylio Library without moving it from its original location. This is also known as adding a Source Folder.
  • External Drive: Copy or add folders from the external drive to your Mylio Library without moving them from their original location.
  • Online Services: Mylio can import from a variety of online services such as Facebook, Flickr, Google Photos and Picasa.
  • Apple Photos, iPhoto and Aperture: Copy the information out of your Photos, iPhoto or Aperture library directly into your Mylio Library.
  • Copy: Copy files from assorted locations on your computer directly into Mylio.
  • SD Card: Easily import all of the images on your SD card into Mylio.
  • Source Folders: Add folders to your Mylio Library without moving them from their original location using the Add Source folders option in Mylio’s Settings.

Protecting your memories is an integral part of Mylio. Files imported into Mylio can be automatically protected to Vaults for safe keeping. Vaults are devices designated to hold all of your original files in Mylio.

External drives, NAS devices, and online services like Amazon or Google drive make great Vaults.

To add a Vault, open the Mylio Dashboard and select the plus sign at the top right corner of the Devices section. Here, you can choose your desired Vault type. All files within Mylio will sync to the Vault in full, original quality for safe keeping.

From your phone or tablet, you have two options when importing:

  • Online Services: Copy photos directly from your Facebook albums, Flickr account, or Picasa and Google Photos to be displayed in Mylio.
  • Add Camera Roll/ Media Library: Importing your Camera Roll happens automatically. However, if you need to add your Camera Roll again you can do so from the Import menu within your device’s Mylio settings. If Mylio alerts you that the Camera Roll or Media Library is already added, it may have been done during initial setup.
