Exporting your Pocket saves

How can I backup or export my saved items?

The links you save to your Pocket are stored on Pocket’s servers. In other words, they’re stored “in the cloud”.

This means that your saves will be available on any computer or mobile device (phone or tablet) that is connected to your Pocket account. To log in to Pocket, please visit our website or download any of our mobile apps, then log in with your Pocket email and password.

Because your saved items are stored in the cloud, you do not need to create special backups of your saved Pocket items. However, If you wish to download your saves for other uses you can use our export tool which creates a downloadable HTML file with your saves and archive.
