How To Permanently Delete Photos From Google Photos?

We all know that Google Photos do not come with free infinite storage, however, the service is still one of the best cloud storage options available right now. Today, in this blog, I’ll be jotting down steps to delete photos from Google photos permanently. Let’s get started.

Steps to permanently delete photos from Google Photos

After opening the Google Photos app on your Android device, Apple iPhone, or iPad follow a few simple steps if you want to get rid of unwanted photos:

  1. Tap a photo to bring up the full-screen view.
  2. Tap the Delete button in the lower-right corner of your screen. A dialog box will pop up, asking if you want the photo moved to the trash bin.
  3. Select Allow to confirm that you want to delete the photo.
  4. Open the Google Photos Library section on the bottom tab of the screen.
  5. Open the Trash folder in the upper-right corner of the screen.
  6. Locate the photo you deleted and tap it.
  7. Click the delete button in the lower-left corner of the display.
  8. Tap Allow in order to confirm and permanently delete the photo.

The image will be deleted from your mobile device and cloud storage immediately. If your Google Photos cloud storage isn’t running out, or you don’t worry about waiting 60 days for the image to be automatically deleted, it’s enough to put the photo in the bin.
