Your Amazon Prime membership has another often underused perk: free, unlimited photo storage.

We see a lot of data loss here at Tech Authority, so we are always big advocates of prevention and backups. Almost two years ago, Amazon unveiled Prime Photos, which lets you automatically back up all your photos to Amazon Drive. Backing up your photos through Amazon is an often overlooked solution that could save your pictures–and you a lot of stress—in the event of a crashed computer or bad hard drive.

What really sets Amazon apart is that the photo storage is unlimited storage. Prime Photos works on computers and also on mobile devices such as iOS, Android and Fire phone via app download. PC users can access it from the Amazon Drive website or a computer program, while Mac users are limited to using it in an Internet browser. It also works with Amazon Fire TV, Roku, the Sony PlayStation, as well as some smart TVs.

Amazon Cloud Drive is the latest file synching service, competing with Apple’s iCloud, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox. However, those services all charge you if you use more than a nominal amount of cloud storage. Now, you can store all your photos on Amazon Drive for free! This makes the list of Amazon Prime perks even longer: free two-day shipping; the ability to borrow Kindle books and stream an ever-expanding collection of movies, music and TV shows; up to 5 GB cloud storage; and free photo storage.
