Paper 4

If you are a new customer Paper, you don't need to create a Paper account.

Accounts in Paper 4 are only used for restoring legacy backups. If you used Paper 2.4 or later, you had the option to create a backup of your device's content when signed in with your account. If you need to download that content, you can do so in Paper 4.

  • Go to Settings > Sign in
  • Go to Settings > Account Settings > Restore from backup
  • Select a restore point to add content to Paper 4

Paper 4 does not have a backup feature. Only a restore feature. New pages created in Paper 4 will not be backed up to our service.

Legacy customers

We use this term to refer to customers who used Paper before the release of Paper 4.

If you have a Paper account that was created before Nov. 30th, 2017, we can verify that you are a legacy customer.
