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.


We recommend PhotoSync which is available for Android and iOS.

Set PhotoPrism or WebDAV as Target

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

    Login: Your username, e.g. "admin".

    Password: Your admin password.

    Directory: /import/ or /originals/ depending on your preferred ingestion method.

    Use SSL: Should be enabled.

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 with Windows file sharing (on Linux, for example, via Samba), you can use this free open-source Android app:
