Cloud storage: A secure, convenient back-up for your data

Cloud image

In today’s world, a person’s mobile phone is their life. It contains valuable data and information, including their contacts, their schedule on the calendar, precious memories in the form of photos and videos, reminder notes, and much more.

A lost, damaged or stolen phone can mean that this data and information is gone forever if it has not been backed up to an off-device location. Whether the result of theft, clumsiness (remember that time you dropped your phone in the pool), or sheer bad luck, your smartphone, and its contents, are always at risk.

This is where cloud storage comes in as a backup option. First created back in the 1960s, this form of data storage and protection gained traction and saw a massive uptake in the 1990s. Cloud storage copies data and information from a device and stores it in the cloud.

However, worries around data breaches and privacy concerns are all too real currently. What if someone is able to gain access to all my personal information? With HUAWEI Mobile Cloud, your data is securely stored with industry-leading dual encryption ensuring that no one but you can access it. It also conveniently allows you to access your stored data anytime, from anywhere, on any Huawei or Android device.

The First Step

The first thing you will need to do when beginning to use the HUAWEI Mobile Cloud platform is to create a HUAWEI ID. Your HUAWEI ID acts as an access card to all your information in the cloud. You can also choose to sync your data between two or more active devices, as well as whether you want an automatic or manual backup of data.

Multiple options

When you first activate HUAWEI Mobile Cloud, you are given 5GB of free cloud storage space. However, if you have a lot of data on your mobile phone, and want to ensure that it is all safely backed up, there are three further cloud storage packages for you to choose from. There’s the 50GB option for USD 0.99 a month. However, if you wish to store your data for a longer period, you can have the 50GB at USD 11.88 for a year or USD 5.95 for 6 months.

Other packages include:

Storage Space: GB Monthly Fee 6 Monthly Fee Annual Fee
200GB USD2.99 USD17.94 USD35.88
2048GB USD9.99 USD59.94 USD119.88

If for some reason you no longer want your cloud storage, you are able to cancel your subscription at any time.
