Most users are either unaware of their personal information being used like this or fine with the trade-off.
We strive to build the best photo management solution by keeping your needs at the center while providing security and privacy.
Additionally, Monument offers more functionality to import and export your photos from other devices such as creating additional backups, importing from external drives by keeping the existing folder structure, exporting metadata and more.
Finally, with Monument, for just $49.99/year (for the first year), you get 4TB of storage to share your plan with up to 5 people. Google's 2TB storage plan costs $119.88/year. You get more value with Monument.
