The photos I take with my Android phone are automatically uploaded by Google Photos to Google.

Is it possible to set this upload up so that all the uploaded photos automatically are made public? Currently I can share a photo from this stream (or make an album) and explicitly set it to "Public" so that it is available on my Google+ profile, but I did not find a way to set that as a default.

Note: I am of course aware of how horrendous this idea is (and I would not be surprised if this is something which is not possible to set up) - I need to understand the feasibility aspect.

  • I doubt that Google would let you do such a thing; they're protecting you from yourself. That said, it shouldn't be too difficult to create an IFTTT recipe that will publish any photo taken on your phone to a service designed to be for public photos, such as Flickr or even Tumblr.

Normally it's doable, but google does not offer this option thanks to global security. https://www.google.com/intl/fr/policies/privacy/
