Capture_mobile_backup_new_blogMy boss’ phone was stolen a few days ago. I can’t even imagine how lost, frustrated and helpless she must have felt without it.  Luckily she had the app “Find My iPhone” installed, so we were able to sit in her office and track the phone on Google Maps. It seemed to be moving in circles in a hotel parking lot in New Jersey, so we used the app to send a message to the phone. Unfortunately the thief ignored our strongly worded message, and refused to answer the phone.

Ultimately, she decided there was too much sensitive information on there, and wiped her device of all data so as to avoid any information leaks.

Unlucky for her BullGuard’s Mobile Backup 12 launched today, and not last week. If she had had Mobile Backup 12 on her old phone she would have been able to restore all of her old data onto her new phone, even without the old phone in her possession! I always think that’s the worst part about losing a phone: losing all your valuable content – with Mobile Backup 12 you can access your BullGuard account online via your iPad, Android tablet or computer and upload your data to your new device. You can even set it to backup automatically, so that it’s not something you ever need to think about until you absolutely need to. The software even allows you to migrate data across multiple platforms and operating systems.

BullGuard Mobile Backup 12 comes with a range of useful features, including:

Online Backup – Enables users to get as much online storage space as they need for their most important files, including contacts backup, SMS backup and other data.

Migration – Ensures that everything can be restored to a new device, regardless of what operating system it uses, from BullGuard’s online backup drive.

Web access – Get instant access to backed-up files through the app’s web interface. Users can review and edit uploaded content any time, and anywhere.

Set and forget – Takes the hassle out of regular backups.  Users can schedule backups to run automatically at regular intervals.

Incremental backup – Ensures instant and constant protection of data.  Users can opt for uploading only the files that have been changed or added since the previous backup.

Encrypted transfer and storage – Protects the data transferred between a smartphone or tablet and BullGuard’s backup server and keeps it away from intruders and malicious third parties. Users can rest safe in the knowledge that BullGuard’s servers are protected with the latest security and encryption protocols.

Support – As always, BullGuard offers free 24/7 support to help guide users through the features of the software or answer any questions they may have.

Mobile Backup 12 is available now. Don’t wait… it’s just not worth the risk!
