Samsung has announced the global rollout of “Temporary Cloud Backup,” a secure and easy solution to safeguard and transfer vital data, catering to the concerns of Samsung Galaxy users regarding data loss. This feature emphasizes Samsung’s commitment to delivering powerful, connected experiences that simplify users’ lives.

Temporary Cloud Backup enables users to securely back up and restore crucial information through their Samsung Account to Samsung Cloud storage. It’s a free service with no total storage limit, but individual file sizes are capped at 100GB. Users can perform these backups without the need for a PC or external memory devices, although a Wi-Fi connection is required for data transfer.

Data is stored for up to 30 days from the initial backup date, and users are notified as they approach this limit before automatic deletion occurs.

This service is especially valuable during device repairs or replacements, ensuring that data is preserved even when users get their smartphones repaired. It’s also a handy tool for device upgrades, allowing users to confidently back up their data before transitioning to a new device.

Temporary Cloud Backup is integrated into Maintenance Mode, simplifying the backup process, including private files within the Secure Folder, for users. It alleviates data-related concerns and streamlines device switching by providing an easy and reliable way to transfer data.

This feature is part of Samsung Cloud, offering a secure and straightforward experience for backing up and restoring data on Galaxy devices, protected by Samsung Account’s two-factor authentication.

The global rollout of Temporary Cloud Backup began in the fall for all Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets running on One UI 6, starting with Galaxy S and Z series smartphones in Korea.
