MANILA, Philippines – Are you a Nokia Ovi user?
You may want to start backing up your files–starting right now.
On Monday, March 5, Nokia announced in emails to users that it is discontinuing Ovi share, an online service that enables Nokia users to upload and share files such as photos and videos. The announcement encouraged Nokia users to use other available online photo and file sharing services instead.
The announcement advised users that they only have up to May 30, 2012 to download files they stored to the service. The notice links to a page giving users instructions on how to download said files.
After May 30, the files will become inaccessible to users of the Ovi Share service and will be deleted.
The announcement also said users will no longer be able to upload files to the service beginning March 13, 2012.
Nokia said it is shutting down Ovi Share so that it can concentrate on its “revised services mission” which is to focus on mobile and location based services.
Nokia phone users, however, can still use their Ovi username and password to access other Nokia services.
