Automatic backup


Enable automatic backup to backup your Olvid profiles automatically when you change your profiles and contacts, and at least once a day, to iCloud, Google Drive or your cloud accessible via WebDAV.

 Warnings

  • If you change OS (iOS <-> Android):
    • Perform a manual backup because automatic backup will not work.
    • Olvid for iOS does not yet support multi-profile. So it is not possible to restore a backup containing multiple profiles on iOS.
  • Please, read the warnings about the backup.

How to start?

First, generate your backup key. Then…

iOS
  1. Tap  > Backup settings .
  2. Enable Automatic iCloud backups.
