How to Backup WhatsApp App on Android & iPhone

Backup WhatsApp : The WhatsApp application stores all data such as chat, audio, photos, videos in the HP storage memory. Therefore, if you don’t save all the data to another storage, it will increase the risk of losing important data in WhatsApp.

Then, is there a way to backup WhatsApp so that data such as important chats and private photos are not lost?

Don’t worry, because to solve this problem, WhatsApp has provided a data backup procedure to another storage area.

If you are using an Android phone, WhatsApp will be backed up to Google Drive. However, if you use an iPhone, WhatsApp will be backed up to iCloud.

This backup feature is also useful if you install the WhatsApp application on a new cellphone so that all data such as chats and photos on the old cellphone can be restored to the new cellphone. Unfortunately, this method cannot be used to restore WhatsApp data from an iPhone to an Android phone or vice versa due to differences in where the backup file is stored (Google Drive and iCloud).

Here’s how to backup all WhatsApp application data on Android and iPhone phones. Please follow the following guidelines according to your HP type.
How to Backup WhatsApp on an Android Phone

There are several preparations you need to back up the WhatsApp application data for Android phones:

  1. Set up a Google account with plenty of Google Drive storage memory.
  2. Set up a smooth internet connection with WiFi or if there is only a data package, it is safer to use an unlimited internet package or a large quota.
  3. Make sure your Google account has a strong and secure password. This is because all backup data stored in Google Drive is no longer encrypted so it can be easily opened.
