Manual backup

Run a manual backup to export an encrypted file of your Olvid profiles backup to your device.

You will be able to transfer it safely by any non-secure means (email, cloud…) and from iOS to Android and vice versa.

  • If you change OS (iOS <-> Android):
    • Perform a manual backup because automatic backup will not work.

    • Otherwise, enable automatic backup instead to sleep easy 😴.

  • Please, read the warnings about the backup.
