Syncing with Mobile Devices

To sync photos and videos on your phone with PhotoPrism, you can use any app that supports WebDAV.

You can disable WebDAV in the advanced settings. Since it requires write permissions and authentication, the built-in WebDAV server is automatically disabled when running in read-only or public mode.

PhotoSync

We recommend PhotoSync which is available for Android and iOS.

Set PhotoPrism as Target

If you are using PhotoSync on Android you need to choose WebDAV as target.

  1. Open PhotoSync and click
  2. Click Configure
  3. Select PhotoPrism as target

Because PhotoSync uses WebDAV to send files, PhotoPrism automatically starts importing/indexing when it receives new files.

Other Apps

As long as you run PhotoPrism on a device where it is possible to enable Samba (Windows File Sharing), you can use this free opensource Android app:
