Granting the app access on your iPhone or iPad

When using Photomyne’s photo scanner app for the first time, it will request access to your iPhone’s camera (to use it for scanning) and to your photo library (to enable saving photos to your camera roll). If you denied this request at first but now want to allow it, here's how:

  1. Open the iPhone’s Settings screen > Scroll down the app list and choose Photomyne.
  2. Slide the “Camera” toggle from white to green to allow access to camera.
  3. Slide the “Photos” toggle from white to green to allow access to your photo library.

Granting the app access on your Android phone

Photomyne’s photo scanner app on Android requires two permissions in order to perform properly: Storage and Camera permissions.

Storage permission: When using Photomyne’s photo scanner app for the first time, it will request permission to access your device’s storage. This is to enable photo saving on your device (within the app), and to ensure all the photos you scanned and will scan in the future remain accessible on your device (storage usage permission).

Camera permission: Once you tap the Scan button in the app for the first time, the app will request permission to access your phone’s camera. The app won’t be able to scan any photos unless you grant it access (therefore we strongly recommend that you select Allow).
