Chapter 13. Security > Using the QuickBooks Online Backup Service

Using the QuickBooks Online Backup Service

For an added measure of security, you can take advantage of Intuit's online data backup service. This fee-based service provides an offsite location for your backup. The online backup service costs $99.95 per year. The Intuit backup service includes triple DES 112-bit encryption, which is the same encryption standard used by the U.S. government. Files that have been backed up online can be downloaded at any time and onto the same or a different computer from which they were backed up. Intuit offers a free 30-day trial of this service.

Did You Know?

Intuit's service isn't the only online backup service available. Many companies offer online backup services. Your company might already have such a service in place for files other than QuickBooks. Explore the Internet, ask for referrals from computer users you trust, and find out what other services are available.


Read about the backup services and pricing options. Then click Try Now for the option you want to use. The file you select downloads to your computer.
