    I have had android phones for years and my current one for about two years and have always used google photos on the device only. Yesterday I went to Google Photos and (for the first time ever) I find that I am signed in to it. I didn't do that, I am not signed in to google on any other device (I hate google!!).

    Any ideas why it has suddenly signed me in, and, more importantly, how do I sign out? There is no option to do that.

    What device did you use to view Google Photos? Because if it was your phone and the phone is signed in to the Google account then I would expect the Photos app to consider you signed in.

    But also, what is the issue? If it has suddenly changed your sync settings and uploaded all of your photos then yes, that's wrong. But if it's not uploaded anything the chances are that all that's changed is that they have made the fact that you were signed in more visible to you.

    An obvious corollary: if you don't want to use the backup feature, why use Google Photos at all? As a gallery app it's nothing special.

    Thanks for the reply. I viewed Google photos on my phone as I always do, yesterday for the first time ever it had my initial top right and displayed differently. I realised that it was because I was logged into it.

    Obviously I have always been signed into the phone (damn google, you can't even use a phone without them knowing!)

    It works fine for what I want, viewing photos and either deleting them or copying them to my NAS.

    Sync is off so I think you are right, they have updated the app and it looks different. Thanks, I didn't think of that!
