Safeguard your data on all your devices

Easily back up your smartphone, PC, tablet with one tool.

Back up what's most important to you

Between all the data on our laptops and smartphones, it seems much of our lives have gone digital. We file and store our tax returns, bank statements and other important documents directly on our devices.

But just because you store your most important data locally on your smartphone, PC, or hard drive doesn't mean it's safe forever. Over time computers and smartphones break down, and hard drives lose their ability to store data. So, staying on the safe side means backing up your data to the cloud.

Automated backups and easy recovery

With MyBackup, you'll be able to back up your data on your time. Schedule backups when it's most convenient for you, like when you're at home connected to the WiFi, while you're sleeping or binging on your favorite show. MyBackup makes it easy to set it and forget it.

You can always access your backup files by logging in to a central cloud-based dashboard. And if your computer, smartphone or tablet ever goes down, you can restore all your important files and pictures with just a few clicks.

Safe in our ISO-certified data centers

MyBackup stores all your backup files according to the ISO 27001 standard meaning your data is secure in our data centers. We also use AES 256-bit encryption to keep your files safe and sound from hackers during the upload process.

Protected from ransomware

You'll also get an extra layer of security with MyBackup's anti-ransomware protection for Microsoft Windows. As your Windows files are backed up, MyBackup scans them in real time for ransomware. If a threat is found, back up stops and you can eliminate the threat — ensuring that your back up files are not contaminated.

                    FAQ – Frequently asked questions

                    Cloud storage is designed for accessing and sharing your files online. However, it doesn’t protect your data from damage or loss. We therefore recommend an online backup solution, especially for data that is sentimental or important to your work. Online backups automatically create copies of selected files, folders, or even entire workstations. These copies are then unaffected by any damage or malware attacks that may end up affecting the originals. Whatever happens to your data, you can restore it at any time using the backup.

                    The amount of storage you need largely depends on the amount of data you want to back up and your backup plans. The amount of data currently stored on your devices will give you an initial indication of the minimum amount needed. If you edit your data frequently and therefore want to back it up quite often, you will need more storage. MyBackup allows you to adjust your plan to your storage needs at any time, giving you lots of flexibility.

                    Differential backups only back up the data that has changed since the last full backup, so as not to take up unnecessary storage space. Incremental backups go a step further by backing up only the changes since the last backup - be it a full or incremental backup. However, differential, and incremental backups are somewhat less reliable when restoring data because they do not contain all the data. Smart backup plans therefore combine full, differential, and incremental backups to achieve the best combination of reliability and storage utilization.

                    You can create one or more backup plans for each device. For each plan, you can define which data source is backed up at which time and how long the individual backups should be stored for, for example. You can also specify the type, i.e., full, differential, or incremental. In addition, the detailed settings can also help you achieve your exact wishes. To make setup easier for you, you can also select from predefined plans.

                    No, if you're looking for a more comprehensive backup solution, we recommend Cloud Backup.
