You can use BlackBerry® Protect to automatically back up your data daily, weekly, or monthly. When you turn on automatic backups, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data at the specified frequency when your BlackBerry smartphone is connected to the wireless network and not in use. If your smartphone is turned off or not connected to the wireless network when a backup is due, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data the next time that your smartphone is turned on and connected.

While BlackBerry Protect is backing up your data, you can use your smartphone as you usually would. BlackBerry Protect pauses the backup process when you use your smartphone, and automatically finishes backing up your data when you are done.

  • You can continue to use your smartphone while BlackBerry Protect backs up your data. You can also set up BlackBerry Protect to automatically back up your data at regular times.

  2. At the left of the web page, click Your Devices.
  3. Beside the smartphone that you want to back up, click Back Up Now.If your smartphone is turned off or not connected to the wireless network, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data the next time that your smartphone is accessible.

    • Set whether BlackBerry Protect backs up your data based on a regular schedule. If you select this option, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data in the background only when you are not using your smartphone. If a scheduled backup cannot be completed (for example, if your smartphone is not connected to the wireless network at the scheduled backup time), BlackBerry Protect tries again until the backup succeeds. If you do not select this option, you can still back up your data manually.
      Set how often you want BlackBerry Protect to automatically back up your data.
      Set whether you want BlackBerry Protect to back up your data only when your smartphone is connected using Wi-Fi® technology. You can use this option to reduce data usage on your wireless service plan, but BlackBerry Protect might not be able to back up your data as frequently. If you select this option and a Wi-Fi network is not available when a scheduled backup time arrives, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data the next time that your smartphone connects to a Wi-Fi network. If you do not select this option, BlackBerry Protect still backs up your data over a Wi-Fi network when one is available, but if a Wi-Fi network is not available, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data over the wireless network.
      Set whether you want BlackBerry Protect to back up your data automatically when your smartphone is outside your wireless provider’s coverage area. You can turn off this option to reduce roaming charges from your wireless service provider. If you turn off this option and your smartphone is roaming when a scheduled backup time arrives, BlackBerry Protect backs up your data the next time that your smartphone is within your wireless provider’s coverage area, or the next time that your smartphone connects to a Wi-Fi network.
