How can I download all the information from my Google account?

Richard Weeden May 10, 2013

I use my google profile (gmail, calender, google+, google drive, etc) literally every day. I depend on it for communication, scheduling  and the idea of someone hacking and compromising it, doesn’t bear thinking of. How do I download my entire profile, so that If it’s hacked I can re-upload it and get my life back ?

      Google Takeout Products
      Google Takeout is a Data Liberation platform that makes escaping from Google products as easy as possible. Takeout lets you take your data out of multiple Google products in one fell swoop. Moreover, you’ll find that all your data is in portable and open formats‚ so it’s easy to import to other services quickly.

      Google Takeout supports the following services at this time:
      +1’d sites
      Contacts and Circles
      Google+ Profile
      Google+ Pages
      Google+ Stream
      Picasa Web Albums
      These are just the beginning: we will be adding more Google products as time goes on, so stay tuned. For now, check out the settings menu in Google+ or visit to give Takeout a try.
