Using Google Photos is a convenient way to store all of your photos and free up space on your Android and iOS devices.
Users can easily import all of the photos they take with their cameras into the app, meaning even screenshots and unworthy pictures are stored in Google Photos.
That being said, you might find your Google Photos flooded with old screenshots and unnecessary images you saved on your phone months ago.
The images saved in your Google Photos can be deleted manually, however, if you are searching for a more long-term solution, unsyncing your phone from the app might be the way to go.
With limited iCloud storage, many iPhone users use the Google Photos app to store their images so that their phones have more room for other apps and files.
However, as mentioned previously, once users sync Google Photos with their iPhones, all pictures, including screenshots, are saved in Google's cloud storage.
Luckily, the unsyncing process is straightforward and requires taking a couple of taps.

One more reason for users to unlink their iPhones from Google Photos is that every time they delete a photo from the storage, it is automatically deleted from their iPhone photo gallery as well.
While Google Photos doesn’t have a built-in feature to prevent this from happening, there is a workaround that can help you with this.
In case screenshots are your biggest issue with Google Photos, there is a way to find and delete all of them from inside the app.
