In our digital age, we have more devices than ever. We have home computers, work computers, family computers, smartphones, and tablets. While it’s convenient to have different devices for different parts of our lives, it’s not convenient to have all our media and files are spread across all of those devices.

If you’re on your iPhone and want to access photos, music, videos or anything off your computer back at home- you’re out of luck. That’s where the younity app comes in.

How does younity work?

While some people might associate some of younity’s features with a cloud service, younity is not a cloud. With younity, all of your files are kept secure and private on your own computers- younity creates a connection to let you access them remotely. This means that you have access to all of your files without taking up any space on your phone or iPad.

All of your files are also very private and secure, as all of your files are kept on and between your own devices. Since younity never has your files and doesn’t store them online, they can’t access your files, see your files, or lose your files.

To use younity, you have to install younity on every computer you want to access, and then install the app on your mobile phone or tablet (or both!).

One caveat to everything working properly is that the computers you want to access remotely must be on and connected to the internet.

Step 2. Install the younity app on your mobile phone or tablet.

And that’s it! You can bask in the glory of access all your media and files!

A couple of things to keep in mind during set up:

  • It can take some time for younity to scan your computer for all your digital files. Typically, scans take several minutes, but it depends on how many files you have. If you have millions of files on a slower computer, it could take up to an hour or more. Keep in mind that you cannot access your files through younity until the scan is complete. As soon as the scan is complete, you will be notified on your computer.
  • When younity is installed on your mobile phone or tablet it will transfer the information about your digital files (AKA “metadata”) to your mobile device. This should take 1-4 minutes, depending on how much data you have.

If you need additional help setting up younity, you can find detailed instructions on their website.
