Samsung Offers Free Cloud Phone Backup for Switching and Repairs
Oct 26, 2023, 7:00 AM by Rich Brome
Samsung will soon let you back up your whole phone or tablet to unlimited cloud storage for free, but only for 30 days. The service, called Temporary Cloud Backup, is designed for users that are either upgrading to a new Samsung device or sending their Samsung device in for repairs. The service is only available from Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets running One UI 6 and requires a Samsung account. It will be available "globally this fall ... starting with Galaxy S and Z series smartphones in Korea." There is no total storage limit, but individual file sizes are capped at 100 GB, which could impact some longer and/or higher-quality videos. Users will receive alerts before a backup is automatically deleted at the end of 30 days.
