As the late Stan Lee once said: “With great power comes great responsibility”.
While Myki does a darn good job of keeping your sensitive data nice and secure, you too have a duty to back it all up, making sure you don't just lose everything forever if you drop your phone in the toilet.
Yes, backups are great, but remembering to do them regularly and keeping a clearly labeled archive of them is no easy task.
Luckily, we’ve made some tweaks to our Browser Extension that should make the process a whole lot easier.
First, we made some massive improvements to how things work in the background to avoid "total loss" situations.
We then moved on to redesigning the "Restore Options” section, which now displays a list of all the backups available in the extension’s secure storage.
Each listing shows which device created that backup, when it was created, and how many items it contains, which should really help in identifying backups and making sure you restore from the correct one.
But we didn’t stop there, we kind of went full paranoid on this one.
The Myki Browser Extension will now create a folder called "Myki Backup Files” within your "Downloads" folder and will periodically download backup files to it. These files will be dated and named after the device they were created from.
You can of course change the frequency at which backups are downloaded (we default it to 14 days), or even turn this feature off altogether, you absolute madman.
So keep an eye out for that update and try not to text on the toilet too much. Better safe than sorry.
