Does HashPhotos send any photos or information to the server?

What is "System Keywords" option in the settings.

iOS has an internal feature to manage keywords.
This feature also allows you to search by keyword in the Photos app and sync across devices if you use iCloud Photos.

HashPhotos will support this feature as soon as Apple allows it.
