Your SkySafari user data is backed up automatically by storing it on your device and synchronizing it with our cloud server.
When you first launch the app, you are assigned an automatically generated and anonymous username and password. The app uses this information to backup your data on our server. The username and password combination is stored in your device's keychain, allowing you to restore your data if the app is reinstalled.
