We have a day for literally everything now. I’m not sure how we got to this point, but here we are. March 31st is World Backup Day, in which users are encouraged to back up their data for security and safety. It is important to remember to back up your data, especially sensitive and sentimental data that you would be horrified to lose.

World Backup Day

This is what the WBD website says about this day and why it’s critical to back your files and information up.

  • What is a backup? A backup is a copy of all your critical files — for example, your family photos, home videos, documents, and emails. Instead of storing it all in one place (like your computer or smartphone), you keep a copy of everything somewhere safe.
  • Why should I back up? Losing your files is way more common than you’d think. One small accident or failure could destroy all the essential stuff you care about.
  • 21% of people have never made a backup
  • 113 phones lost or stolen every minute
  • 29% of data loss cases are caused accidentally
  • 30% of all computers are already infected with malware
  • How do I do this? We’re already well on our way, but now it’s time to actually take action. Get started today with one of the solutions below to better protect your data!
  • Create your first backup. Go through the steps on the WBD website and read how you can easily secure your files via backups and how you can improve the security per device and solution. March 31st is WorldBackupDay: the day to prevent data loss!
