    I moved out of my house a while ago but the pictures on my phone are still being backed up to the family Google Photos account. I really want for my pictures to just be backed up onto my own account and not my family's anymore. I have turned the sync off and googled the question everywhere cant figure it out. The question is, how do I stop my personal account from syncing with my family account?

    You may need to make a new google account (gmail) and add it to your cellular phone and delete the other account.

    My guess is that there is an owner of the family Google Photos account, and that owner can add or delete members. If I am correct then ask that person to remove your account from the family Google Photos account.
