If you're having trouble with auto-upload, please check the followings:

Common auto-upload problems on iOS devices

On iOS, please make sure app permissions are given to the Monument app. If access to Photos is restricted, the Monument app can not upload photos and videos. In order to turn this option off:

1. Please select Settings > Privacy > Photos on your iPhone or iPad

2. Choose Monument from the list and make sure it has access for "All photos"

3. Finally, keeping Bluetooth ON on your phone could improve the upload performance. When your Monument device is detected over Bluetooth, the Monument app is triggered to complete pending uploads over WiFi.

1. Open the Settings on your phone

2. Select Apps & notifications and find Monument app from the list 

3. Select Advanced and choose Battery>Battery optimization>Not optimized 

4. Also, make sure that Background restriction is disabled

Samsung S9 & S10:
