Best Android Backup Apps in 2023 - Backup & Restore Photo, Contact, SMS &more
Last Updated on October 19, 2023 by Jason Ben
Nowadays people become more and more dependent on their phones. We now carry the device with ourselves 7/24, so as a result, a lot of data may be stored in the device including your contacts, photos, notes, etc. But you can’t put eggs in one basket, because chances are that you may lose your phone and your phone may go wrong sometimes. Losing the data stored on your device may be the kind of loss you can't bear, so backing up your data regularly is necessary. In this article I will introduce three best android backup apps for you. These android backup apps are easy to use and may save you a lot of pain, should something bad happen to your Android device.
NO. 1 FoneLab Android Data Recovery
FoneLab is a backup app I have used for a long time, and it never falls short of my expectation. It is an easy-to-use app which can back up and restore your data selectively and flexibly to your computer. This app also has some other cool features that may blow your mind, for example it can even restore deleted data from your broken device.
Step 1 Download and install FoneLab for Android to your computer. Open this app after installation if it doesn’t open automatically. Choose Android Data Backup & Restore on the interface.
Step 2 Click One-click Backup if you want back up all the data or Device Data Backup if you want to back up your data selectively.
Step 3 Connect your android phone to the computer with a USB cable. Once it is connected, the program will detect the phone automatically. If not, go to step 4 to enable USB debugging mode on your phone.
Step 4 When the program can’t detect the phone, the interface of the app will show the instructions for you to enable USB debugging mode on your phone if the mode is not enabled already. Follow the instructions on the interface and then tap the OK button.
Step 5 Then on the interface you have many kinds of file to back up. Choose the files you want to back up but I recommend you back up all your data.
Step 6 Click Next and then Recover to back up all the data you have chosen.
NO. 2 dr.fone - Backup & Restore (Android)
This app allows you to back up almost all kinds of data just like FoneLab. And it also allows you to back up application data but it needs you to root your device which is very difficult for average Android users to do although it may be a useful feature to some specific people.
Step 1 Install and launch the app, and choose Backup & Restore on the interface.
Step 2 Connect your device to the computer with a USB cable, and make sure the USB debugging mode on the phone is enabled. If the Android version on the device is 4.2.2 or higher, the app will pop up a window to ask for your permission to allow USB debugging. Click OK.
Step 3 Click Backup to start the backup process.
Step 4 Choose what kinds of files you want to back up and click Backup.
Step 5 After the process is completed, you can see what is in the backup file by clicking View the backup button.
NO. 3 Google Photos
Google Photos is a great and free app for backing up your photos. The catch is that it can only back up your photos and videos. Besides, photo quality will be decreased.
Step 1 Download and install the app from Play Store on your Android device.
Step 2 Open Google Photos app and sign in with your Google account.
Step 3 At the top of the app, tap Menu button.
Step 4 Choose Setting then Back up & Sync.
Step 5 Toggle Back up & Sync on to back up your photos.
