How To Backup And Bring Back Android Apps


If you aim to step up as a bigger boy or girl with a brand new Android phone or have to reset the one you presently use for whatever reason, you’ll always want to be certain that your apps and data are safely backed up and can be transferred easily. We have Google to thank for its own backup feature in our Android phones to make this a simple task.

Here is the straightforward step you need to take to make sure the transfer of your apps from an old phone to a new one is as uncomplicated as possible. Read and know once and for all How to backup and restore Android apps:

Apps And Data Backup

The easiest way to back up your apps and their important data have to be with the feature included in your Android device itself. Google has always informed us that as far as we use Google Drive as our safe, then we’ll have these listed items included in our backup – Wi-Fi networks and passwords, Wallpapers, Gmail settings, Apps, Display settings (brightness and sleep), Language and input settings, Date and time, Google Contacts data, Google Calendar events and settings, Settings and data for apps not made by Google (varies by app.)

To begin the process, navigate to Settings > System > Advanced > Backup.

In there you’ll find the option to Back up to Google Drive.

Switch this on via the toggle button, then tap the Back up now button.

Expect the process to take a short time to finish, this is dependent on the amount of data you have to back up. When it is done, you’ll be able to view in the Active backups section a list of what was backed up and when that happened.

Please note that you’ll need to make use of Google photos for images and videos back up, so get yourself logged into that app. Documents and files should be located in folders on Google Drive to ensure your files are very safe.

How To Restore An Android Backup

This aspect of the process is automatic because whenever you set up a new device with your Google account, you’ll need to choose which backup you’ll want to restore.

If you discover that anything is missing from your apps then access Settings > System > Advanced > Backup, and click on “App Data.” in the Active backups section.

If the Automatic restore option is OFF, turn it ON and then try to uninstall the app. After removing the app, install again by going to the Google play store, then locate it and tap the install button. By so doing, backup would be restored. Open the app again to confirm.
