Nowadays we depend heavily on web apps without realizing that we do not have much control of the data we have online. We leave it up to the cloud to take care of our data without ever worrying of losing them. However, there will be times where you could lose all of it when your account gets hacked, deleted or when a web service goes down permanently. Backupify is a web service that helps prevent such problems by backing up your online accounts automatically.
Backing up your accounts with Backupify is fairly easy. After signing up, input the login details of web accounts that you want to backup. Then choose the frequency of backups, either daily or weekly. Backupify will automatically backup your data and send regular email notifications whenever backups are done.
After successfully setting your accounts, you can view your history or retrieve the backup files in the archives. If something bad happens to any of these accounts, Backupify will restore it for you.
This handy app supports a wide range of web products like Flickr, Twitter, Delicious, Zoho, Google Docs, Photobucket, WordPress, Basecamp, Gmail, Facebook, Friendfeed, Blogger and Hotmail. More support for apps are being developed in the pipeline.
As we input tons of photos, videos, documents, contacts, messages, notes, links, and connections in the cloud, it just makes sense to have a backup for all of them. Backupify is a great tool that gives us a way to do just that.
Backupify is free if you signup before January 31, 2010. After which, new users will probably be charged a small fee with a free plan going forward.
