Can you help me set up the automatic camera uploads feature?

Explorer | Level 4

I am new and hopeless with tech.  I want to sync photos and videos from my android phone to my Dropbox. I found a helpful answer but couldn't go on when it said, Click the gear icon. Please can someone post a photo of a gear icon so I can see what it looks like? Does it look like a cog? If so my Dropbox doesn't show it. Using online app.

Those things relate to if you have Dropbox installed on your computer, not a phone.

 

If you are on a phone you should look at https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/photos/camera-uploads-overview

I'm really confused. I have the app on my phone and also use Dropbox on my laptop. Which one do I go to in order to sync photos and videos to my Dropbox so they are on my laptop dropbox as well?
