Useful DropShots Privacy Customization Tips to Improve Your Experience

dropshots privacy settingsDropShots have lots of settings and options for making your photo sharing experience just great. We’ve already coveredĀ how to edit your photos on DropShots, the formats DropShots supports, using DropShots iPhone app, DropShots navigation and more. Today I’m going to show you how to customize DropShots settings.

DropShots Privacy Settings

I’m sure that a lot of DropShots users simply post photos and videos the way they do on Facebook and don’t check the privacy settings. And that’s a shame because DropShots is very customizable when it comes to your privacy. You can select who can see your photos:

  • Only you – that’s when you’re using DropShots more like a backup tool, although keep in mind that the main purpose of DropShots is photo sharing.
  • Friends – all your DropShots friends will be able to see your photos and leave comments.
  • Anyone with a passcode – you can protect all your DropShots albums, images and videos with a password.
  • The general public – anyone on the Internet can see your photos.

Even if you set the privacy settings to “Public”, you will be able to protect individual albums with a passcode.

My favorite DropShots privacy feature is the ability to hide photos from the search engines. I mean, it can be an unpleasant surprise to see your family photos on Google Images. Worse still, someone might use your photos on their blog. Well, DropShots can easily prevent this – just go to Settings and uncheck the “List in directory” checkbox.

Another thing you can do on the “Settings” page is to allow or disallow people to download your photos. If your friends are asking you to let them download some photos you uploaded, simply go to “Settings” and the checkbox next to “Allow my visitors to download my photos / videos”.

      Hi Wayne,

      they are available for free, but you have to configure them using your browser on your computer. Then the iPad app will know them and use them.
