Permission levels on cloud storage options ??

Hi all,

So in our family we have two iOS devices ( with minimal storage ) and two Android devices. We are looking for a way for all 4 devices to use cloud storage as cheaply and easily manageable as possible.

Since there are Android devices that rules out AFAIK a single iCloud account. However my OH already has a Prime account so we thought about Amazon Drive (which has the added bonus of unlimited photo storage for free).

I have installed the app on both an iOS and Android phone and the uploading works fine. However, whilst the Amazon Drive shows a folder for each device, the apps (on each device) show all the images uploaded by both devices.

Is there a solution which works on both iOS and Android and with a single account restricts a device to only see the content it uploaded?

How much storage are you looking for? What kind of things do you want to store there?

As for Amazon, if you have prime then create a prime family account. Each member gets their own Amazon prime account but just pay once for it. I think you can do up to 5 accounts for 1 household. Each gets their own drive I think and then can do shared one too (Family Vault)? Not 100% sure as we are a pure iOS household so all iCloud for that kind of storage, and I have a Synology NAS for other storage that is a "private cloud" storage option.

Thanks Kryten, will do some digging.

But on a quick Google it seems that a Prime account can only be shared with one other person

How much storage do you actually need per device/total?

Excellent. I will look into that.

So all of us would get our own share of the 'master' account's Amazon Drive and Amazon Photos allowance ?

Also, how do you enter email addresses for the child profiles and/or how do the child profiles log into to Amazon Photos / Drive ? Or maybe that is where the Family Vault comes in ?
