Intuit Data Protect (IDP) is a subscription service that backs up your files to protect them from loss or damage. Your files are automatically backed up online over the Internet once a day, every day, at an automatically selected time to an offsite location.
You can choose to back up just your QuickBooks company file (Company Data plan), or you can back up multiple QuickBooks Desktop files and any other data on your computer (Entire PC plan).

To provide greater security and stability, all connections used by QuickBooks Desktop to access Intuit services will need to meet certain system requirements after May 31, 2018. Make sure your Internet Explorer uses TLS 1.2 to keep features like Payroll, Online Banking, and Payments working.
