How to transfer photos from mobile to computer

It is not the only system for transferring photos and other files from a mobile device to a PC. At we have already talked about some of the applications that allow it, and today we do it again by presenting a program that allows you to transfer photos from your mobile to your PC without having to install anything on your  smartphone . You only need to have a WiFi connection, a mobile phone and a Windows computer. We mean the  ScanTransfer app .

How Scan Transfer works

It is a free application that is installed on the computer. To access it from your mobile, you just have to scan the QR code shown in  ScanTransfer to start the transfer of photos, and also videos, from your mobile device.

The transfer process creates a folder on the desktop in which the transferred photo(s) are stored. The entire process is done quickly, without complications. To do this,  ScanTransfer creates a local server on the PC. When the QR code is scanned, access to this server is opened in order to start the transfer process. The entire process is carried out transparently and without fail.

To consider

When the transfer is carried out within a local network there will never be privacy problems, since everything is done only between the mobile and the computer. ScanTransfer works seamlessly on iOS and Android mobile devices that have the ability to scan a QR code. To do this, you can activate the camera and use the tool offered by Facebook or Twitter. It is also possible to use a specific QR code reader.

The makers of the application say it clearly: « ScanTransfer  is a free desktop software program for Windows that allows you to transfer photos and videos from your mobile phone to your desktop or laptop computer. The best thing about ScanTransfer is that the program  DOES NOT REQUIRE  you to install any new applications on your phone.
