How to set up Verizon Cloud on your computer (3:02)
Let's walk through how to set up Verizon Cloud on your computer.
Start by downloading the Verizon Cloud desktop app on your computer.
Once your download is complete, open the installer to be guided through the installation process.
Mac users may need to grant additional permissions to complete the installation. Windows users will be prompted to restart their computer to complete the installation.
Now that it's installed, let's get everything set up.
For Windows users, you can launch the app from your desktop. If you're on a Mac, the Verizon Cloud app will open automatically.
If you are a Verizon wireless customer, you can sign in with your mobile number. A verification link will be sent via text to your phone to complete your login.
Alternatively, you can choose to use your My Verizon user ID or Verizon mobile number and password. You will then be asked to answer your secret question to continue.
Now, it's time to select a storage plan that's right for you. With 3 options to choose from, we have something for everyone on your account.
To unlock all the best Cloud features, including backing up your computers, select the 2TB or Unlimited plan. It's good to know that the 600GB plan and lower storage tier plans do not support computer backups. However, 600GB and lower storage tier plans users can still view, organize, and manage mobile content on their desktop.
If you're an existing user, you will see your current plan in blue above the plan selection options. You can choose to upgrade your plan or to keep your current plan by clicking Keep plan.
If you're new to Verizon Cloud, go ahead and make your plan selection by clicking Try plan.
The first 30 days are on us.* You can always change or cancel your subscription at any time.
Confirm your selection by clicking Sign up.
Next, create a nickname and enter your email. We need this for extra security so you don't get locked out. Also, if you want to share your Cloud with friends and family, they'll know who's inviting them.
Now, let's add your computer to backup your files to the Cloud. Select Back up this device. Name your computer so you can find your Cloud files quicker. This makes searching easy.
Now it's time to select the folders you want to backup.** Select all or just choose the folders you care about most. When you're ready, click Start backup.
Awesome. Your Verizon Cloud set up is now complete and your computer files are being safely backed up.
The first sync may take a while, depending on how much content you have.
We recommend making sure your device is plugged in and you're using a strong Wi-Fi or wired connection. You can access the Verizon Cloud app at any time by clicking the Cloud icon in the lower right corner on Windows or the upper right corner on Mac.
You can check your backup status, access all your files and update settings at any time.
New files and changes to your files are automatically backed up to the Cloud for safe keeping.***
