1. Secure the Cloud
2-step verification is one of the most effective ways to back up your data. If this option is enabled, you will need to enter both your password and a randomly generated code provided by Apple as you make changes to your Apple ID or purchase from a new device. To activate, log in to your Apple ID in your web browser, click Password and Security, and follow the on-screen instructions
. 2 Keep your file hidden
If you do not feel confident enough with your private photos on iCloud, even after you enable two-step authentication, you can ensure that your photo stream is never uploaded to Apple's servers the first place. On iOS 8 go to Settings> iCloud> Photos and uncheck "My Photo Stream" and "Photo Sharing".
. 3 Secure Now
Thanks to the Cloud, it's possible to back up your pictures, accounts, documents, and settings automatically when your iPhone or iPad is plugged in, locked, and connected to Wi-Fi. On iOS 8, go to Settings> iCloud> Backup and enable iCloud Backup. You can even delete some of your local files, such as pictures, to save space on your device.
. 4 Save storage space
Save storage space by turning off backup storage for applications that you rarely use or do not need to back up in the cloud. For example, it's important to back up your contact list, but do you really need to back up your whatsapp chat logs? On iOS 8, go to Settings> iCloud> Storage> Manage Storage> Your iPhone> and choose which apps you want to back up.
. 5 Google Contacts to iCloud
You can easily migrate your Google contacts to iCloud by logging into your Gmail account and clicking on the red Gmail text above the red button on the left side of the screen click and select contacts. Now click on the "More" button in the toolbar at the top and select "Export". A new window appears, select the contacts you want to save and export as a vCard format. Log into your iCloud account on your computer and drag the exported vCard to the Contacts folder. To view these contacts on your iOS device, go to Settings> iCloud and make sure Contacts is turned on.
. 6 Go from the net
hate iCloud and everything it stands for? It's okay, you do not have to use it. On iOS 8, go to Settings> iCloud and select Sign out. You can still back up all your data unless you have to do it the old-fashioned way by connecting your Apple device to your computer and backing it up via iTunes.
7. Saving Each File
You do not just need to save certain Google files to Google Drive. When you download the desktop app, a folder is created where you can drag and drop any files. Do you want to transfer a set of Word files, MP3s or even a video from one computer to another, but you do not have a dongle at hand? No problem, just use Google Drive.
. 8 Share Your Documents
Google Drive allows you to share your document publicly, privately, or for a select few. Click the blue Share button in the upper-right corner of your document, and under "Share with others," enter the names of the people you want to share them with. If you want to create a public link, click the small chain link icon in the upper right corner.
. 9 Defend your drive
Google has a two-step verification – it was one of the first users of the system – and it's a breeze. While logged in to your Google Account, click your name in the upper-right corner, then click Account> Security, and under Password, click the 2-step verification option before following the on-screen instructions.
