Using Backblaze Mobile


       – Start the app to see the login screen. Change the toggle switch if you want us to remember your password. You can also change this setting in the iPhone Settings/Backblaze panel. Use your Backblaze account name and password to login.


       – Select the computer you wish to view and we’ll build a list of your files – this can take from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on how many files you have backed up with Backblaze. Navigate to and choose the files you wish to download.


       – Once downloaded you can view your photos, documents and spreadsheets, watch your videos or listen to your music.


     – Depending on the file type and the other apps on your iPhone a file can be printed, copied, emailed, posted, tweeted and more.

Remember, the files you access with your iPhone are just a copy from the Backblaze datacenter where your files continue to reside safe and sound.

So give Backblaze Mobile for iPhone a try, it’s fun, it’s easy and it’s free. Enjoy.
