Can you back up everything with the one online backup account? Jon Feingersh Photography Inc / Getty Images Maybe you have a phone, a desktop, and a tablet that you'd love to keep backed up all the time but you don't want to pay for three different plans. This question is one of many that you can find in our Online Backup FAQ. "Can I use a single online backup plan to backup multiple devices?" Yes, some online backup services offer plans that support simultaneous backup from multiple devices. In fact, the majority of backup services with these types of plans support an unlimited number of computers/devices. Some others support up to ten, five, or three. With multi-device plans, you pay for just one account but each device has its own unique area in the shared backup space where its files are backed up. This means that when you sign up, you have one account that logs into the backup service, but it can pull data to the cloud from multiple computers and mobile devices. Multi-device plans are almost always the most cost effective way to go if you have more than one computer or device from which you need to keep data backed up. "Which online backup services let me back up more than one device?" There are several to pick from. Use the link below to compare prices between each of the major multi-device online backup services. Some are even free, but you're given less overall storage space, which could become a problem if you plan to back up several devices to the same cloud space.
