The Mobile SmartScan mode lets you scan connected smartphones, tablets and other devices for duplicate and similar photos. This mode uses Media Transfer Protocol to access images, which allows DPC to support iOS, Android, and other devices that support MTP. The advantage of this scan mode is that DPC automatically detects all images located in all folders on your device, doesn’t download any images to your PC, and eliminates the need to install any apps on your phone.

To scan your smartphone for duplicate and similar photos using the Mobile SmartScan mode, follow these steps:

  1. Connect your phone to your PC using a USB cable and open Duplicate Photo Cleaner
  2. DPC will automatically detect a supported media device and offer you to scan it for duplicate photos
  3. Click inside the Include area to add the phone(s) to the scan, select the devices you want to scan, and click OK
