What is Blink used for?

Blink is an American home automatic company that produces battery-powered home security cameras (outdoor security cameras, home security systems & video doorbells). And Amazon announced the acquisition of Blink in December 2017.


Thus, Blink cameras are good helpers for people to secure their homes and offices.

Is there a way to recover deleted videos on Blink?

Most Blink users have purchased a subscription to save clips and videos and get copies of these media files.

With subscription accounts, USB backups provide a possibility to recover deleted Blink videos even if you’ve permanently deleted them from your Blink app and cloud storage.

There’re two types of backups below.    

Clip Backup with USB:

One of the features of the Blink Subscription Plan is the Clip Backup, which allows you to save cloud-based clips to a USB stick.

  • To access your cloud-based clips, you’ll have no choice but to seek help from the Blink app.
  • Your backup clips will automatically update every 24 hours and be sent to your USB.
  • Clip Backups can be seen after the USB has been safely ejected from Sync Module 2 and connected to a PC.

Local Storage:

If you don’t have an active Blink Subscription Plan but want to use Local Storage, you will need a Sync Module 2 managed system with a USB flash drive plugged into it.  

However, please note that a free monthly subscription cannot automatically store your motion clips and Live View sessions on Blink’s cloud servers. Not to mention browsing cloud-based clips in the Blink app.

How to recover deleted Blink videos without backups?

Once the deleted clips or videos reach their auto-deletion time (60 days in the US or 30 days in the EU/UK), they’ll be permanently deleted from your Blink app or cloud server.

Unlike Google Drive, all the permanently deleted cloud files cannot be recovered even if you ask for help from the Customer Support of Blink.
