This deal comes up every year but for whatever reason I never qualify. I've never used the feature and I've had a continuous membership since 2009.

Thanks. Took only a few minutes yesterday afternoon to download and run the app. Received an email today with a credit of 20 dollars off 40 dollars on Prime Day. Very easy.

Thanks. Just uploaded one photo yesterday and received the credit. I downloaded the app and had another old photo in there so must've done that for a previous promo, so definitely not a one time thing.

FYI, if you have been using this app already on Android:

Amazon Fixes High Severity Vulnerability in Amazon Photos Android App

Cybersecurity researchers from Checkmarx have spotted a critical vulnerability affecting the Amazon Photos app on Android.

If exploited, the flaw could allow a malicious application installed on the user's phone to steal their Amazon access token.

From a technical standpoint, the Amazon access token is used to authenticate users across various Amazon application program interfaces (API), some of which contain personally identifiable information (PII) that could be exposed during attacks.

Other APIs, like the Amazon Drive API, could allow threat actors (TA) to gain full access to the user's files.

According to Checkmarx, the vulnerability derived from a misconfiguration of one of the Photos app's components, which would allow external applications to access it.

Whenever this activity was launched, it triggered an HTTP request that carried a header with the customer's access token. The server receiving the request could then be controlled.

"Knowing this, a malicious application installed on the victim's phone could send an intent that effectively launches the vulnerable activity and triggers the request to be sent to a server controlled by the attacker," wrote the researchers.

"With all these options available for an attacker, a ransomware scenario was easy to come up with as a likely attack vector. A malicious actor would simply need to read, encrypt, and re-write the customer's files while erasing their history."

Moreover, Checkmarx explained that it only analyzed a few APIs in its research, constituting a small subset of the entire Amazon ecosystem.

"It's possible that other Amazon APIs would also be accessible to an attacker with that same token," the security experts explained.

Upon discovering this set of vulnerabilities, Checkmarx said its first action was to contact the Amazon Photos development team.

"Due to the high potential impact of the vulnerability and the high likelihood of success in real attack scenarios, Amazon considered this a high severity issue and released a fix for it soon after it was reported."

The news comes a month after a misconfigured database exposed a major coordinated scheme by Amazon vendors to obtain fake reviews for their products.

You don't have to backup everything. And you turn off auto backup.
Just backup one photo.

I backup up 6 photos on my non prime account the other day and got a $10 credit good for anytime
