When Cloud Backup is enabled, Meta backs up your device’s app data, like game progress or game settings, to the cloud. This allows you to easily pick up where you left off in a game if you reinstall an app, reset your device, or set up a new device.
To keep your Cloud Backup data safe, your app data is encrypted on the device and remains encrypted on our servers.
Turn Cloud Backup on or off
- Put on your headset, then hover over the clock on the left side of the universal menu. When Quick Settings appears, select it to open the Quick Settings panel.
- Select Settings.
- Select System, then select Backup.
- Select the toggle next to Cloud Backup to turn Cloud Backup on or off.
Keep in mind that while Cloud Backup is available to all developers, it's up to developers to decide whether to enable this feature for their app and what data is backed up.
