Free Up Space on Camera Roll or Media Library

Mylio can help clear up space in your device’s Camera Roll or Media Library once the original image has been imported and protected to Mylio. In order to do this, Mylio needs to ensure your photo is protected by having the original image in two other locations. If your photo is not in at least two other locations, Mylio will not delete the photo from your Camera Roll or Media Library.

To learn more about protecting your photos to clear Camera Roll or Media Library space, please see this article.
