How do I backup the information in my AOL OnePoint?

We recommend that you regularly backup your AOL OnePoint so that if anything happens to your computer, you can re-install AOL OnePoint on a new computer and restore all your personal information in one step.

To create a backup:

1. Open AOL OnePoint.

2. Click the Options tab on your dashboard.

To restore your AOL OnePoint:

5. Enter the PIN you used to create the backup and your information will be restored into your AOL OnePoint on this computer.

Note: You can install your AOL OnePoint on up to five devices per AOL account. You may use this process to copy your AOL OnePoint data from one computer to another when you download AOL OnePoint to another PC.
