How can I backup / export my data?

Yes, you can use our exporter tool at export.wunderlist.com to save all of your owned lists, tasks, subtasks, files, comments and notes as a .zip file. Please note, however, that any shared lists that you are a member of but do not own cannot be included in the export. 

It is also possible to export your data from within the Wunderlist app itself:
  1. Open up your web browser on your desktop/Mac and log into www.wunderlist.com (on Chrome, Firefox or Safari). Note: the Backup option is not available for Internet Explorer and Edge browsers
  2. Click on your Avatar picture at the top left of the screen and select Account Settings: 
  3. Here you'll find the button to create export.

If you are using Safari, you will additionally need to right click on the button, then pick "Download linked file as..." and add the extension .json to the file name.

The backup contains your Lists, To-dos, Subtasks, Reminders, Notes, Files and Comments. It does not include Shared Lists you don't own, Assignees or the list members of any Shared Lists.

Note: The Wunderlist export .zip file will include your account data as both a JSON file and as easy to read html and text files.
