Back up or restore data on your Android device

You can back up content, data, and settings from your phone to your Google Account. You can restore your backed up information to the original phone or to some other Android phones. You can't use back up when you set up a personal device with a work profile or for work only, or when you set up a company-owned device.

Restoring data varies by phone and Android version. You can't restore a backup from a higher Android version onto a phone running a lower Android version.

Important: Some of these steps work only on Android 9 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.

Where your phone data is stored

Backups are uploaded to Google servers and they're encrypted with your Google Account password. For some data, your phone's screen lock PIN, pattern, or password is also used to encrypt your data so it can be backed up safely.

Your backup data (except what you back up to Google Photos) is erased if:

  • You don't use your device for 57 days
  • You turn off Android backup

Back up content

Automatically back up your phone

Important: To help protect your backed-up data, use a PIN, pattern, or password screen lock, instead of a swipe or Smart Lock.

You can set up your phone to automatically back up your files.

  1. Open your phone’s Settings app.
  2. Select Google And then Backup.
    Optional: If this is your first time, turn on Backup by Google One and follow the on-screen instructions.

Your Google One backup can take up to 24 hours. When your data is saved, “On” will be below the data types you selected.

  • Settings

Erase after backing up

After you back up, you can reset your phone by erasing everything on it. Learn how to reset your phone to factory settings.

Get your data onto a new phone

When you add your Google Account to a phone that's been set up, what you'd previously backed up for that Google Account gets put onto the phone.

To restore a backed-up account to a reset phone, follow the on-screen steps. For more help, get help from your device manufacturer.

Your photos and videos are already available in Google Photos. But you can restore the rest of the data you backed up while you set up your new phone for the first time or after a factory reset. At setup, to restore your data, follow the on-screen steps.

The process can take up to 24 hours.

Important: You can't restore a backup from a higher Android version onto a phone running a lower Android version. Learn how to check and update your Android version.

  2. Tap Google And then Backup.

How Backup handles your data

Important: The data that backup collects is encrypted in transit.

Backup sends your data to Google’s backup servers and helps you transfer data between devices. Backup collects certain information to perform services on your device. Some of this functionality uses Google Play services. For example, backup collects:

  • Messages, contacts, app settings, and preferences are collected as part of your personal backup.
  • Personal identifiers are collected to ensure that your backups are associated with you and your account.
  • Crash logs and diagnostics are collected for analytics and troubleshooting purposes.

Turn backup off

  • To disable your backup, go to Settings and then System and then Backup and then Backup by Google One.
  • To delete your backup, you can also use the Drive app on Android.
