News Release – August 30, 2023

Bellevue, WA – Today, Mylio announced the upcoming release of Mylio Photos (version 24), a highly anticipated update set to redefine how individuals and small businesses manage their constantly growing collections of photos, videos, and documents. With this release, Mylio delivers on almost two years of intensive research and development driven by customer research to reimagine how to manage our most precious data: our memories.

“Every person we talk to feels the same way – they are drowning in a sea of digital clutter. The number of files an average person produces today can feel overwhelming,” said David Vaskevitch, CEO of Mylio. “The blessing is a record of one’s life and legacy. The curse is finding a needle in the haystack. With the next version of Mylio Photos, we achieve two important goals: collecting precious memories into a secure library and making them easier to find and share.”

With each new release, Mylio Photos builds on its commitment to helping everyone collect, organize, and share their memories—independent of the Cloud, accessible on every device—all while preserving user privacy.

Spaces: Clutter-free access to all your media

In this release, Mylio Photos users can organize their media into Personal, Family, Work, and Private Spaces. With just a tap on each folder, they can efficiently sort and manage their files in subject-specific views. Spaces provide convenience and help make large libraries feel less cluttered. Spaces offer security options for those concerned about privacy.

Mylio Photos+ users can craft custom Spaces tailored to specific themes. With Remote Control, users can easily provide access to Spaces for family members or other collaborators and control what they see and whether they can edit, share, or delete files. Account holders can also add devices, adjusting each device’s access and views.

A Mylio Photos+ library offers unlimited collaboration opportunities for families and businesses needing a central library with precise controls and privacy.

Dynamic Search: Find anything in seconds

Dynamic Search delivers faster results than any other search tool. It revolutionizes media search with an AI-driven index built entirely on the user’s local device to preserve privacy. No outside entity, including Mylio, can access the user’s data.

Mylio Photos’ AI-generated SmartTags create the index by identifying over 1,000 activities, objects, and properties. Examples include:

  • Text in images and documents found with Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Faces in pictures, using Face Detection that suggests matches based on user input
  • Photo and file properties from the camera’s EXIF metadata
  • Embedded and user-added IPTC metadata
  • GPS data that’s reverse geo-coded into standard, human-readable addresses

Through Dynamic Search, Mylio Photos learns what users search for and compares newly added media to past searches. As a result, Dynamic Search becomes faster, more personalized, and far more precise than other search tools. Applying QuickFilters to Dynamic Search can further refine results by Date, File Type, Rating, and more.


Shared Albums: Share without compromising privacy

Shared Albums allow Mylio Photos+ users to create and curate semi-private albums and share them with a select audience. Mylio hosts images on non-indexed web pages that make it easy to share viewing and downloads with just those you want. The user has precise control over what metadata is included in the files and a SafeShare option, which removes all personal information to improve privacy and safety.

Mylio Photos continues to innovate, offering features that prioritize user experience, privacy, and efficient photo management.

Mylio Photos (version 24) is scheduled for release on all platforms in late September 2023. Mylio Photos+, the premium plan, is available for $9.99 per month or $99 (USD) per year.

  • Spaces will be available in Mylio Photos, with some advanced features only in Mylio Photos+
  • Dynamic Search will be available in Mylio Photos and Mylio Photos+
  • Shared Albums will be available only in Mylio Photos+

The version 24 release includes several additional features that will be revealed at launch to improve protecting, organizing, and sharing files.
