Mylio Quick Start Guide

 

 

Welcome to Mylio, the home for your photos, videos, and documents. This guide will help you set up Mylio, add files, and protect them.

 

Download and Sign In on a Computer

 

We recommend starting on a computer, to do this visit mylio.com/get-app to download Mylio. Open the installer. Sign in with an email and password, then verify your email. Alternatively, you can sign in with a preferred third-party on the left.

 

 

 

Add Files using the Setup Wizard 

 

The Setup Wizard helps you add files to Mylio. Click “Add Files”, then choose one of the four options to where your photos are currently stored that you want added to Mylio. Most new users start with “This device”. When you select this option, Mylio checks your computer’s drive for photos. It shows you the folders that have photos and lets you choose which ones you want to consolidate in your Mylio library. This process will not move the photos from their existing locations nor will it duplicate them; it simply presents them in one convenient, unified library. Click the circular ( BEGIN ) button to get started.

Take the Welcome Tour 

At the end of the Setup Wizard, select the option to “Take the tour”. If you already finished the Setup Wizard, you can relaunch the tour by going to the View menu (the three vertical dots in the top-right), selecting “Help”, and then selecting “Show Welcome Tour”.

 

Add a Protection Device 

Protecting your memories is an integral part of Mylio. To protect your files, your Originals need to be stored on at least one device. This device should have a significant amount of storage space. External drives, NAS devices, and online services like Amazon, OneDrive, or Google Drive make good protection devices. 

You can add a protection device through the Setup wizard or you can open the Mylio Dashboard, and select the “+Add” button

 

 

Sign In to Mylio on Your Mobile Device

 

Mylio is engineered to connect multiple devices. When you add Mylio on your phone and tablet, you’ll be able to manage your library conveniently from those devices. The photos you take on those devices can also be automatically added to Mylio. 

 

To get Mylio on your mobile device, download Mylio from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Sign in with the same email and password (or third-party method) you used on your computer and follow the prompts of the setup wizard. Mylio will sync optimized versions of your files on mobile so you don’t run out of space.
