Proton Drive’s photo backup feature lets you backup images from your mobile device. If, for whatever reason, you need to turn off this feature, you can do so in just a few simple steps.

Note that even if you disable photo backup your pictures will remain in Proton Drive. You can once again enable backup whenever you’d like. To remove photos from Proton Drive entirely, you must delete them in the app.
