Backup & Restore with Google

Backup Google account data in the event you have to replace or reset your device so you can restore later.

  1. You can use Android Backup Service to back up data connected to one or more of your Google accounts. If you replace your device or erase its data, you can restore your data using the account(s) that you backed up. From the Home screen, swipe down from the Notification bar and select the Settings icon.
    Note: For more information, including what data and settings are restored, please see Back up or restore data on your device.
