Backup

Backup your data

The BullGuard Mobile Security suite allows you to backup sensitive information to our secured servers allowing you to restore it as needed. Backing up your critical data is a simple process and will save your contacts and calendar.


Guide

Step 1

Open the Mobile Security application and at the main screen click on the Basic Backup item.

Step 2

At the next screen, tap on the Backup Data icon. A prompt will appear where you can choose what items to backup.

After selecting the items you wish to backup, tap on OK to start backing up the data or Cancel to return to the previous screen.

Step 3

Depending on the amount of data you want to backup and the Internet connection you are using, the process might take a while to complete. To ensure all essential data is backed up properly and nothing is lost, make sure you don’t turn off your phone or accidentally cancel the process.



Step 4

You will be notified as soon as the backup process is complete. Click OK to return to the Basic Backup main screen.

Restore your data

While backing up your information is simple and straightforward, Restoring previously backed up data is centred on securing your critical information preventing unauthorized access to it. All restore tasks are started from the BullGuard Mobile Security Manager to ensure absolute privacy for the information stored in the backup files.
Step 1

To restore your contacts, you need to login to your account on BullGuard Mobile Security Manager at https://mobile-security.bullguard.com/smobile/dashboard/login.htm using your BullGuard Mobile account details. After logging in, click on the Backup & Restore button.

Step 2

A new pop-up message will open where you need to click on the Restore option. The Security Manager will send a command message to your mobile device which initiates the restore task.

Step 3

Once the command message is received on your device, BullGuard will retrieve the previously backed up information silently in the background. The restore time depends on the amount of data to be copied on your phone and your Internet connection.
